EVN's power transmission company to run smart grid in 2018

The National Power Transmission Corporation under the Electricity of Vietnam (EVNNPT) is implementing a project applying geographic information system (GIS) in the management of power transmission, which is expected to be put into operation in 2018.

This technology will help computerise the technical and operational management and support the operation quickly and effectively.

Seventy-nine percent of the 135 transformer stations will use computerised control systems and intelligent electronic devices.

The EVNNPT is also implementing digital transformer stations, which are scheduled to become operational in 2018-2019.

Smart grid is a pilot solution in many places in the world for power management from manufacture, transmission, distribution to the end-customers.

In Vietnam, the Prime Minister has issued a decision in November 2012 approving the roadmap of smart grid development with the aim of improving power supply quality and reliability; encouraging safe and effective use of electricity; boosting effective exploitation of energy natural resources, and promoting environment protection and sustainable socio-economical development.-VNA/VNP
