Oklahoma State University was founded in 1890, and 1/3 of the electrical infrastructure was a 2.4kV distribution system installed between 1940-1960. The underground infrastructure is primarily “Orangeburg” ductbank, and many of the dry type and oil filled transformers were previously housed in campus basements. The summer of 2018, we embarked on an adventure of upgrading the distribution to 12.5kV. This presentation covers the things we learned about major utility work at a 125 year old University.
