HA NOI (VNS) — Deputy Prime Minister Hoang Trung Hai has encouraged the nationwide development of "smart grid" to improve power quality and raise the efficiency of energy.
On Thursday, he was briefed by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Electricity of Viet Nam about the implementation of the road map on developing "smart grid".
Last year, the steering committee on developing "smart grid" managed to set up a system of supervisory control and data acquisition and a remote metering system at all power plants with the capacity of more than 30MW and 110kV transformer stations.
In addition, a system of monitoring 110kV grid operator, a mini system of supervisory control and data acquisition to customers who consumed a large amount of electricity, and production and installation of electronic metres were also implemented widespread.
In this year, the committee planned to boost the efficiency of the power system and test the remote control centre of Da Nhim, Ham Thuan and Da Mi hydro-power plants.
Deputy PM Hai said it was necessary to improve the forecast ability of electricity demand and power supply and limit the power reduction during peak periods.
He asked the ministry and the corporation to collaborate closely to urgently implement the tasks on large scale and need more detailed plans for each task. — VNS
