Leading New ICT
Building a Better Connected Intelligent Grid

Intelligent Power Grid Summit 2016

July 14-15, 2016 | Bangkok, Thailand

Challenges

  • Europe, Australia, China

    Clean energy

    Cross-area power transmission

  • Latin America, Southeast Asia

    Higher reliability for power supplies

    Better operating efficiency

  • West, North, and Southeast Africa

    Insufficient power supplies and coverage

    Inefficient management and difficult bill collection

Trends

More Supplies and Better Operation

Grids Need to Be Connected Across the Borders of Countries and Regions to Balance Demands and Supplies

  • Interconnection has higher requirements on grid reliability

    The transmission distance exceeds 1000 km The transmission capacity is in the GW class

    Overall Grid Reliability

    Capacity up by several times Coverage and user base up by several times
  • Service systems support real-time monitoring and dispatching.

    Cross-grid Dispatch Center Wide Area Measurement System (WAMS) and Differential Protection
  • Low-delay and highly reliable

    Communications Backbone

    Six-nines reliability (99.9999%) Delay < 50ms Bandwidtth >10G, supporting smoothly evolution
Reliable Supplies and Refined Operation

Rapidly Growing Percentage of New Energy on Intelligent Power Grid Will Become a Norm

  • New energy is expected to account for increasingly higher percentages of power consumption

    In China: Electricity accounted for 22.6% of energy consumption in 2014 Globally: Electricity accounted for 17% of energy consumption in 2014 In 2050, the global percentage will increase by 25%
  • Clean energy will gradually replace fossil energy

    Low-carbon and renewable energy enjoys rapid growth Industrialization and urbanization propel the development of the electricity industry A higher level of electrification will be a driver for economy
  • New energy has a random pattern of output power

    Microgrids and Distributed Energy

    Grid connection and disconnection at any time Bidirectional flows of electricity Bidirectional billing

    Centralized Wind and Solar Power Generation

    Low energy conversion rate: about 20% Adverse impact on grids: intermittent and unstable power generation
  • Service systems support real-time monitoring and accurate prediction

    AMI(advanced metering infrastructure ) New Energy Power Generation Prediction Systems Power Generation Systems with High Conversion Rates
  • full sensing and bidirectional communications

    Connection of massive numbers of terminals Terminal online rate >99% Bidirectional high-speed communications Decision-making supported by big data
Clean, Less Pollution, and Operational Excellence

Electricity Industry Needs to Be Open to More Sources of Investments to Relieve Operating Pressure, Improve Efficiency, and Deliver Better User Experience

Diverse National PoliciesEncourage Competition and Open Up Markets

Privatization of Power Distribution

  • Turkey1->21
  • Nigeria1->11
  • Colombia1->10+

Marketization of Electricity Trade

  • US240
  • Australia200+
  • Germany1000+

Electricity Reform in China

  • China
  • Separate government functions from enterprise management and separate power generation from power supply

    Open up electricity sales step by step

Same Business ObjectivesImprove Competitiveness and User Experience with Automation and Information Technologies

  • Improve Competitiveness

    Higher productivity: distribution automation, AMI Higher work efficiency: office automation Lower costs: cloud computing, AMI resources
  • Improve User Experience

    Less outage time, better quality of power supply: automated dispatch, distribution automation More interaction and greater customer satisfaction: call center, AMI
