Tech/Engineering / power plant specifications
French term or phrase: poste d'insertion
In the call for tenders for the construction of a power station, it is specified that "les points de raccordement de la centrale sur le réseau HT se feront sur les lignes X-Y et A-B qui surplombent le site choisi pour l’implantation du poste d’injection" as described in the Technical Sepcifications. What is this poste-d'injection? A loading sub-station?

IMO the "poste" here is a sort of (electric) substation. The reason it is qualified as "d'injection" is because IT is the substation that "injects" power into the grid, aka "poste de départ", as opposed to intermediate substations or distribution substations at the centres of consumption. To avoid confusion with the many types of substation, "switchyard" is often used for the substation thus routing power FROM a power plant.

<<Le poste haute tension
Un poste haute tension reçoit une ou plusieurs alimentations à partir du réseau d\'électricité. Les sous-stations de traction de la SNCB sont directement alimentées au départ d\'un grand ***poste d\'injection*** d\'Electrabel. La plupart des sous-stations ont une alimentation dédoublée provenant d\'un poste 36 ou 70 kV. Le plus souvent, une seule alimentation est en service, et l\'autre est prête à remplacer éventuellement la première. La majeure partie des postes 70 kV sont alimentés via une ligne aérienne. Les appareils sont montés à l\'extérieur>>

I don\'t believe the following is mainstream English. The terms \"injection substation\" comes up on non-English and Nigerian sites:
<<The General Manager (Distribution), NEPA Lagos Zone, Engineer Kayode Oni, said at the weekend that the authority was working had to improve electicity supply to the state.
He said, as part of these efforts, the authority added five new ***injection substations*** in the first quarter of this year, installed 32 new 11Kv feeders during the same period while NEPA had also embarked upon 24 ***injection substation projects*** and installation of 41 11kV feeders. A total of N3 billion was spent on power projects in Lagos alone during the period, which included provision of 110 distribution transformers>>

<<A ***switchyard*** will be constructed to integrate power from the generating station into the Federal Columbia River Transmission System (FCRTS).
The interconnection and proposed upgrade to the transmission grid would include less than one-half mile of new 500-kV transmission line (approximately 2 to 3 towers) and a switchyard (Crow Butte) consisting of up to eight bays to be located east of Dead Canyon. The ***switchyard*** would connect the power plant to the existing Ashe-Slatt #1 transmission line and may intertie to the Ashe-Marion #2 500-kV transmission line and the proposed John Day-McNary 500-kV transmission line.>>
