Power Distribution

The primary purpose of an electricity distribution system is to meet the customer’s demands for energy after receiving the bulk electrical energy from transmission or sub transmission substation. There are basically two major types of distribution substations: primary substation and customer substation.Electrical distribution systems are an essential part of the electrical power system. In order to transfer electrical power from an alternating current or a direct current source to the place where it will be used, some type of distribution network must be utilized.

The method used to distribute power from where it is produced to where it is used can be quite simple. More complex power distribution systems are used, to transfer electrical power from the power plant to industries, homes, and commercial buildings.Whether you need a straightforward transformer replacement or a custom multi-section we’re your team.We routinely design and build safe, reliable, cost effective power distribution systems that meet or exceed industry standards for their applications.

Our deep expertise in electric motors and drives—as engineers, custom manufacturing craftsmen, and field service specialists—gives us an edge when it comes to optimizing power distribution systems for specific applications and instances.Our specialties include substation optimization,switch gear for severe-duty applications,harmonic filtering and power factor correction for machines with extreme load cycles,custom line and load reactors and new technology integration.

For power distribution systems, we use many methods to mitigate arc flash hazards to NFPA 70E standards which include current-limiting fuses,arc-resistant switch gears,adaptive trip-setting technology,ground-fault limiting resistors.We take the time to understand your application thoroughly, so we can design a system that’s safe for your team and addresses field challenges effectively.

Our extensive application experience enables us to design best-fit power distribution systems for not only specific applications but also specific sites and machines.That’s one of the biggest advantages of working with Palmer we’re end-to-end experts in power systems, from energy source to work done—including regenerative energy reuse.
