Structural Assessment of Highway "N" Power Substation under Earthquake Loads

A research plan is developed for Ameren to consider over the next two years. It includes two major tasks: seismic analysis and evaluation of substation performance, and shake table tests of critical non-structural components such as rigid bus connectors. Each major task can be completed in approximately one year. This project is aimed at evaluating the seismic vulnerabilities of the highway "N" power substation. The proposed study involves both numerical analysis and experiment. The findings from this study will be summarized in a final report that will be submitted to sponsors.
