  2. ELL-North Transmission Reliability Projects Northwest LA / South AR voltage support (Sarepta)

  3. NW Louisiana/South Arkansas Voltage Support Plan Scenario: • The following single contingencies will result in low voltages to occur in the southwestern corner of the EAI service territory: • Loss of the Magnolia East - McNeil line segment • Loss of the Magnolia Steel - Magnolia East line segment • Loss of the Magnolia Steel - Kerlin S.S. line segment • Additionally the contingency outage of any of the following lines: • 115 kV line from Carroll to RingGold • 115 kV line from Truss to Vienna • 115 kV line from Vienna to MT. Olive • 115 kV line from SpringHill to Taylor • 115 kV line from Haynesville to Emerson • 115 kV line from Danville to Jonesboro • The low voltage concerns propagate into north Louisiana (Lucky substation). • Capacitor bank additions alone do not provide sufficient improvement to this region. • The transmission grid performance can be improved by providing a new EHV source to the area. Proposed Solution: • Build a new 345 - 115 kV station at Sarepta by tapping the El Dorado to Longwood 345kV line • Install a 21.6 MVAR capacitor bank at Emerson. • Install a 32.4 MVAR cap bank at Lucky • Install a 32.4MVAR cap bank at Vienna • Proposed In-Service Date: 2011 Estimated Cost: $26 MM

  4. Emerson/ Sarepta Area Emerson: 21.6 MVAr Capacitor Bank Sarepta: Build 345 - 115kV substation; Tap El Dorado-Longwood line
