Part of: Waterpower '89


Devil Canyon Powerplant is a hydroelectric plant facility of the huge California Water Project. This powerplant is located 5 miles north of San Bernandino. It is currently being enlarged from 120 MW two-unit plant, to 280 MW, four-unit plant. Some of the electrical problems encountered in the design and construction of the electrical features to accommodate the two new units are unique to enlargement projects of this type and involve special design considerations. This paper discusses a few of these problems and their solutions.
