Rosseti Centre - the managing organization of Rosseti Centre and Volga Region completed the installation of digital equipment at the “Airport” substation in the Udmurt Republic. The 35/6 kV “Airport” substation became the first digital power centre in the Udmurt Republic and one of the first within the service area of IDGC of Centre - the managing organization of IDGC of Centre and Volga Region (the companies operate under the brands of Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region in 20 constituent entities of the Russian Federation).
Within the framework of the “Digital Transformation 2030” concept, the power engineers reconstructed the power facility in accordance with international standards IEC 61850. Commissioning of relay protection and automation devices was completed. At the inputs of 6 and 35 kV of the substation “Airport”, converters of analog and discrete signals to digital format are installed. As a result, information exchange takes place between the dispatcher and the substation equipment via digital communication channels.
Microprocessor-based software packages are integrated with devices of an automated dispatch control system. All data on the parameters of equipment operation, telemetry, telecontrol and remote alarm systems are transmitted via digital data transmission channels to dispatch points of Distribution Zones of the branch. At the same time, the dispatcher can not only monitor technological processes, but also provide remote control of switching devices and relay protection and automation devices - make necessary switches at the substation and quickly provide the specified reliability indicators for consumers of the Zavyalovsky district of the republic, part of the city of Izhevsk, as well as the airport of federal significance of the same name.
Please, be reminded that in October this year, the power engineers launched two new power transformers. As a result of the modernization, the total capacity of the substation increased from 8 to 12.6 MVA. Also, instead of physically and morally obsolete equipment at the substation, vacuum circuit breakers and disconnectors with remote control were installed. In total, over 67 million rubles have been invested in the project now.
“Today, the “Airport” substation can rightfully be called the most modern energy facility in the region,” says Igor Makovskiy, General Director of Rosseti Centre - the managing organization of Rosseti Centre and Volga Region. “A full-fledged universal digital platform implemented on its basis will serve as a model for the modernization of substations of this voltage class not only in the Udmurt Republic, but also in other territories of our operational responsibility. The successful implementation of all planned activities allowed us to significantly improve the quality of power supply to consumers, to ensure the availability and adaptability of the grid infrastructure to new tasks and challenges.”
