QUESTIONS to answer:
Knowledge management / transfer
How does your company:
• Arrange preserving knowledge
• Deal with loss of knowledge?
• Internal information flow / circulation / access / knowledge-base
• Training and development program for engineers
• Official collaboration with university
• Imposing restriction on sharing knowledge (intellectual property)
Health index and importance index
How do you create them – what information used
How do you use them
How do you defend them
Voltage and current limits and upgrade of substation in general
What is your company policy regarding higher operating voltages than rated
Current overloads – and upgrades
How do you evaluate the real limits of equipment
Evaluation of supporting structure
If you do not upgrade how do you manage the risk
Private stations – grid code
What is included in the Grid code and private substation connection to the grid (wind-farm and solar + industrial)
Contracts with private organizations for above?
What should be there?
Collection of failure reports AMforum and Failure modes
Known failure modes of suspect transmission station equipment.
An example is the danger of porcelain instrument transformers exploding, health and safety, exclusion zones, collateral damage, HR etc.
