Palmetto Traction Power Sub-Station
SCOPE OF WORK
A&P Engineers answered the call when Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) was in need of a new Traction Power Substation (TPSS) to both enhance current Metrorail operations performance and to support the new Metrorail vehicles. The proposed substation will be located on MDT property adjacent to the Palmetto Metrorail Station and will support all traction power requirements between the Palmetto and Okeechobee Station. In order to accomplish this, 2 new 13.2 kV feeders will be provided by Florida Power and Light (FPL). These feeders will power the new power substation and to provide redundant 480V AC power to the Palmetto Metrorail Station which will replace the existing FP&L 25kV system.
