Lighting design for substations is a lighting plan that lays out the physical space inside a substation and places fixtures within the space. The plan can include model elements such as equipment that might block light. The plan then calculates the needed light levels and light balance within the space.

The ideal lighting layout places fixtures in ideal locations to provide the light levels required for the space to be safe and well-lit for maintenance purposes.

Substation lighting does not need to be particularly bright, but it should provide enough lighting for safe working conditions and security lighting. Portable task lighting might be more appropriate for working on locations within a substation rather than lighting up the entire space.

1 Lumen per foot candle square is equivalent to 1 foot candle. Since these spaces tend to be more outdoor locations, a good start would be between 5-10 foot candles or 5-10 lumens per foot candle square.

A lighting plan will show you how bright the area will be, and where there may be some dark areas blocked by components of the substation.

For the most part, we have seen flood lights as the light of choice for these applications. The type you use will depend completely on what you are trying to achieve.
