Electric service should be restored in sequence from source to load. Repairs should be made at substations associated with TVA entry points then emphasis placed on gate stations and substations and the associated transmission lines between. This restoration should place priority on substations and circuits which affect categories of customers as listed on the next slide. A restoration philosophy should be maintained which will insure an equitable response to the entire community while maximizing the number of customers being restored.
Once restoration proceeds beyond hospitals, water pumping facilities and sewage treatment plants, the priority list becomes dynamic depending on various external contingencies such as weather conditions, duration of the outage, and special requests by EMA. If possible, primary distribution work and secondary service work in an area will be conducted simultaneously and all secondary work should continue even though primary work is complete. Restoration, however, should follow this order with deviations being dictated as needed by upper management and EMA. Areas of convenience, i.e. major intersections, malls, shopping areas, will also be looked at to assist the community in coping with an emergency that lasts several days.
