Universiti Sains Islam Malaysia (USIM) formerly known as Kolej Universiti Islam Malaysia (KUIM) main campus is located at Bandar Baru Nilai, Nilai, Negeri Sembilan.
The campus initially received its 11-kV supply from Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) in 2005 via Stesen Suis Utama (SSU) No. 2, located just about 100 meters from USIM Main Entrance. This is because TNB was not ready to deliver its supply via its 132/33-kV Main Intake located to the North-Eastern tip of USIM Campus.

However, as the new buildings are being added to the campus, the initial supply of about 3 MW is expected to be exceeded by the new faculties buildings demand. As such, on the 11th. November, 2007 TNB has commissioned its two new 11-kV supply to USIM Main Intake Sub-station. TNB supply is fed via two 11-kV Overhead Lines circuits.

Thus, on the 11th November, 2007, 11-kV supply from TNB was safely transferred from SSU 2 to USIM Main Intake Sub-station. Intricate switching procedures were planned and carried out successfully without any accident. Live-phasing Test on 11-kV Test supply from two sets of TNB Incoming Feeders was carried out using Live-Phasing Sticks. The test was carried out by Syed Abdul Hadi (SAFF Testing Engineer) and me.

Alhamdulillah, at last a more stabilised and sizeable electricity supply system has been established and commisioned to USIM to ensure all its activities are not interrupted.
