Little Blue Wind Substation

The Little Blue Wind Project was a renewable project I was a design engineer on. It connected 100 turbines in the SPP region, and totaled approximately 250 MW of generation. My role in the project was related to the electrical and physical design of the 34.5 – 345 kV Generator Step-Up Substation.
