Chinese Companies are soon going to introduce new technologies in Pakistan’s power sector that will help better manage its huge energy losses. Currently energy losses were exceeding 18%, a figure that many analysts believe is one of the highest in the world.
The new technology that will help Pakistan solve its energy loss woes – smart grid technology.
Smart Grid Technology
Smart Grid technologies can be used to fix the issue of the increasing gap between demand and supply, reduce losses and automate power transmission and distribution.
This is significant because under the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), around $15.5 billion worth of coal, wind, solar and hydropower projects will add 10,400 MW of energy to the national grid.
The actual difficulty here lies in managing the upgrades for the transmission, distribution and metering sectors efficiently. This can be done by introducing smart grid technologies.
HenenKosen Enterprise Development Company To Introduce Smart Grid Technology
The HenenKosen Enterprise Development Company from China will make a presentation on Smart Grid devices, discussing its utilization and advantages in the Pakistani power sector.
The discussion will focus on different aspects and uses of the Smart Grid system such as Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), Outage Management System (OMS), Peak Load Management System (PLMS), Renewable Energy (RE) etc.
The experts of HenenKosen will also share the experience of using the Smart Grid technologies in China for various maintenance techniques which improved performance of power systems. Smart Grid can also be used to achieve advanced asset management (AAM), which can enhance asset utilization, efficiency and improve system reliability.
They said that the monitoring and maintenance of electrical equipment is crucial for asset management. Several ways of condition monitoring of electrical equipment along with the development of computers, sensors and other advanced monitoring technologies can be implemented for better performance and output of the current system.
