TEMPORARY SOLUTIONS FOR SUBSTATION FLOOD MITIGATION

This month’s Featured Technical Paper is from the Proceedings of the 2019 International Conference of Doble Clients. The paper is titled: Temporary Solutions for Substation Flood Mitigation

Abstract

A robust flood hardening program is one factor to consider in protecting a substation's critical assets from environmental flooding events. This paper outlines the systematic approach that Duke Energy utilized in considering temporary flood mitigation for some of its Carolina East substations. As part of the flood mitigation selection process, Duke Energy evaluated multiple temporary flood mitigation products including hands on demonstrations and in-field testing. With the imminent landfall of Hurricane Florence in 2018, Duke Energy deployed temporary mitigation at six selected substations. Also, incorporated within this paper are the results and lessons learned from 2018 temporary flood mitigation.
