    Transformer requirements

    I am pricing a project which includes the following electrical requirements to get power to the job site:
    Step up voltage from 240V at the property line to travel a distance of 1650 ft underground (#2 aluminum 15KV wire) to the job site. Step down voltage at the job site to 240V to support 200A service. Running primary to the job site is not an option.



    1. What step up voltage should be attained for adequate efficiency and acceptable power loss?

    2. Suggestions for types of transformers at both ends?

    Thanks….
