During a visit to the Main Analytical Centre of Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region in Moscow, the leadership of the Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Supervision (Rostekhnadzor) and the Central Department of Rostechnadzor were presented with a new model of operational dispatch control based on the domestic automated technological process control system in the power grid complex “CK-11”. The presentation was attended by Deputy Head of the Federal Service Dmitry Frolov, Head of the Rostekhnadzor Central Directorate Evgeny Tyumentsev, First Deputy Director General - Chief Engineer of PJSC Rosseti Andrey Mayorov, and General Director of Rosseti Centre - the managing organization of Rosseti Centre and Volga Region Igor Makovskiy.
The new control system is used in the regional grid control centres and city dispatch centres created within the framework of the digital transformation concept. The operational information complex ensures the stable functioning of the power grid complex in various modes of its operation. In cases of man-made or natural negative impacts on electric grids, “CK-11” allows to restore power supply to consumers in the shortest possible time.
Since 2018, in the service area of Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region, after reconstruction, 11 digital grid control centres and city dispatch centers have been opened, from where the grid complex of regions and large cities is controlled online. Five more digital facilities are planned to be commissioned by the end of 2020. Models of power systems of all 20 regions of presence of Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region were created, including the facilities of the main grid complex of Rosseti FGC UES.
The meeting participants were shown the functionality of the automated complex, the ability to control the grid operation modes and determine the sources of electricity losses. A typical automated workstation of a dispatcher is presented, equipped with two computers with four monitors, allowing to work in the “CK-11”, a geographic information system, a system for operational management of works, etc.
Dmitry Frolov, Deputy Head of Rostekhnadzor, noted the particular relevance of the implementation of automatic control systems for technological processes in the power grid complex, which, if properly implemented, can minimize possible errors in decision-making by engineering and technical personnel, which, in turn, will lead to a decrease in failures and injuries.
“The management of Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region did a lot of work over the past two years. Significant progress has been achieved in terms of radical modernization and transformation of the power grid complex in 20 regions of the country. Today we are faced with a common, most important task - to ensure reliable and trouble-free operation of the entire life support infrastructure during the heating period of 2020-2021. The results achieved by Rosseti Centre and Rosseti Centre and Volga Region will contribute to its successful solution,” Dmitry Frolov emphasized.
Based on the results of the meeting, for the full use of the presented system, a list of solutions was determined regarding the need for its individual technical and technological improvements.
