Substations go digital

Customers can expect new levels of  reliability, real-time performance and faster troubleshooting with the digitisation of our major new substations.

Endeavour Energy has built its first major digital substation at South Erskine Park, incorporating digital protection and control. Fibre optics and supervised digital signals have replaced almost all of the traditional copper wiring, meaning quicker deployment, cheaper operation and a much simpler design, reducing construction time down to just 15 months from the usual three years.

This latest digital innovation provides flexibility for the network to adapt as more and more home solar systems and batteries are connected to the network to enable greater customer choices and help reduce greenhouse emissions. It will keep downward pressure on our portion of electricity bills as we continue to deliver a modern 21st century network.
