I worked with a team of engineers and learned how high voltage power projects are completed at the design level through developing wiring schemes, engineering drawings, studies, and reports. In addition, I attended many classes and lunch & learns held by various vendors and Dashiell engineers. My most memorable learning experience was completing AC & DC load calculations for a 230kv – 34.5kv substation with the guidance of my supervisor.
