Electrical Substation and switch yards

A substation is substation that is the main link between the power plant and the transmission system. 

It can be considered the heart of the power plant, the generated energy will only be valuable if consumers can transmit and receive it. 

The substation is a junction that transmits the generated energy to the destination, it plays a major role in the security of the system, it can control the and reactive power equipment, which plays a major role in the power quality. 

It is mostly an assembly of switches, power circuits, circuit breakers, and auxiliary equipment that is used to take power from the generators in the power plant and then it wi,ll be distributed to the transmission lines at the load point. 

A substation means a set of electrical equipment where high-voltage electricity is switched using various components. Electrical substations are one of the important parts of a substation where electricity is converted from one voltage to another from transmission and distribution. The substation can be considered as the connection between the power plant and the network. The generated energy from the power plant is transferred to the grid via the substation.
