Description: This is the Keilor Terminal station in the western suburbs of Melbourne Australia. As seen in the photo are 3 of the 5 220/66kv transformers that supply all of the northern and western suburbs of Melbourne. Shown is the 220Kv/66Kv section of the station which supplies 210,000 to 215,000 homes and businesses including Melbourne Airport. The 500Kv section adjacent (converts to 220Kv for the 220Kv/66Kv Transformers via 3 1000Mva 500/220 transformers) to this is a switching station and doesn't direct supply any homes, but loops with other 220Kv and 500Kv terminal stations nearly supplying all of western Victoria. Here is a Google Map showing the supply area of KTS
