Medium Voltage Packaged Unit Substations

Medium Voltage Packaged Unit Substations

Main Technical Parameters

All the benefits of a standard substation without needing a full civil-designed building. JST packaged substations include fully functional HV/LV switching, control and protection, metering, reactor compensation and more. With the added advantages of small substation footprint, flexibility to move and relocate, low capital investment, unobtrusive and attractive appearance – JST packaged substations are designed for use in high-rise buildings, residential districts, municipal facilities, industrial and mining enterprises, oilfields, ports, airports, construction site, roads, wind power plants, etc., and they will work in both indoor and outdoor settings.

Skid & Container Solutions
The YB-series medium voltage prefabricated substation is a box made up of the HV/LV switchgear, distribution transformer, metering devices for electric energy and compensation devices for power factor, etc., serving as complete sets of power distribution and transformation unit in the power distribution and transformation grid with a rated frequency of 50Hz/60Hz.

Maximum temperature: +40°C; minimum temperature: -10°C (ordinary areas) and -25°C (alpine regions)

Enclosure: Rated for outdoor use.

Ground acceleration: Suited for standard and seismic applications.


This product is intended to be installed with predefined conduit entries and an approved surface to support weight. The packaged substation will greatly reduce labor and commissioning time on-site. If any special service conditions are required for installation, inform JST of any requirements. The special service conditions (if any) shall be proposed by and confirmed prior to order placement.

Model of the box-type substation: YB-□/□-capacity (□ depending on the rated voltage on the HV/LV side)Rated capacity: 30~3,800kVA; if the capacity is larger than 3,800kVA, consult the technicians of the Company to provide a separate scheme.

HV/LV rated voltage: The rated voltage ratio (7.2, 15, 27, 38 generally on the HV side; 0.27, 0.315, 0.4, 0.48, 0.52 and 0.69 generally on the LV side) on the HV and LV side.

Example: YB-15/480-2,500

Transport & Rigging

Easy to handle and easy to transport. JST packaged solutions come with standardized interfaces, such as ISO-container corners, for quick and simple fastening, lifting and rigging. All while remaining within international transport requirements and not requiring oversize transport.

The electrical equipment (including the switchgear and transformers) inside the product shall be checked and maintained regularly, per the requirements in the installation instructions and relevant provisions. Impact with hard objects should be avoided, as it could damage the anti- corrosion protective coating. The door of the HV/LV switchgear may be opened, or the panel may be removed for ordinary maintenance from the front side. In case of overhaul or replacement of main equipment, the fixed nut of the top cover shall be removed. Lift the top cover away and then lift out the transformer or the switchgear for overhaul or replacement.

The purchaser shall provide the following data related to the product during ordering:

  1. Type and capacity of the transformer and configuration of accessories.
  2. Wiring scheme of the HV/LV chamber and the specifications and model of electrical elements.
  3. The enclosure is routinely offered in ivory white or in light green. If a special color is needed, provide factory with sample. Customizing is required in case of special color requirements.
  4. Other client requirements may be requested during ordering.

The inclination shall not exceed 30° during product transportation. The vulnerable elements (such as the energy meters) during transportation may be removed before long-distance transportation. Anti-shock packages shall be used separately, and such elements shall be recovered after arriving at the destination. The product shall be placed at the normal usage position during transportation, and the transporting tools shall be fixed firmly to the base or the packing place. The products shall be free from movement and obvious shaking during transportation. Other positions are not allowed except for the hook at the base and the lifting rings at the top.
