Terminal and Through Sub station

Terminal sub-station. A terminal sub-station is one in which the line supplying to the substation terminates or ends. It may be located at the end of the main line or it may be situated at a point away from main line route. In the latter case, a tapping is taken from the main line to supply to the sub-station. Fig shows the schematic connections of a terminal sub-station. It is clear that incoming 11 kV main line terminates at the sub-station. Most of the distribution sub-stations are of this type.

Through sub-station. A through sub-station is one in which the incoming line passes ‘through’ at the same voltage. A tapping is generally taken from the line to feed to the transformer to reduce the voltage to the desired level. Fig shows the schematic connections of a through substation. The incoming 66 kV line passes through the sub-station as 66kV outgoing line. At the same time, the incoming line is tapped in the sub-station to reduce the voltage to 11 kV for secondary distribution.
