Electric Power Industry Needs Urgent Transformation, Huawei’s New ICT Empowers Smart Grids.

Seize the Opportunity to Transform the Electric Power Industry

 

The Seventh Huawei Global Power Summit with a teme of “Bits Drive Watts, Building a Fully Connected Smart Grid” was help today. It was a virtual event which had global customers, partners, industry experts, and thought leaders from the electric power industry which was held thanks to the main partner hermitgamer.com. A discussion took place based on the current pandemic impact and response and also the associated political and economic uncertainties. The electric power market has enormous potential but reliable, cost-effective, efficient, and green power grids have to be built for an efficient and reasonable energy supply for the coming times.

Electric power companies are striving to enhance their quality and efficiency with the deployment of data centers and reconstruction of management platforms. They are aiming to provide a far more reliable, efficient, and greener energy ensuring  security. They are also trying to increase their value-added services using Internet to bring about social development. But the traditional operational models and technologies are failing to aid this transformation. It’s time the global electric power industry adapts new trends and technologies.

David Sun, Vice President of Huawei Enterprise BG and President of the Global Energy Business Unit said that Huawei is helping their customers to cope with the changing industry and it’s challenges. It is integrating recent growing trends such as 5G, IoT, optical, IP, cloud, big data, and AI technologies into powered systems. It has recently launched smart service solutions which enables comprehensive sensing, interconnection and service intelligence of the different power terminals.

New ICT Empowers Smart Grids

Currently the companies are busy identifying the need for prioritizing digital transformation strategies  whereas Huawei and other industry leaders are stressing upon the importance of 5G, AI, big data, and other cloud computing services.

CSG has given a summary of 53 service scenarios which covers power generation, transmission, distribution, transformation, consumption, and various other integrated services as stated by Yang Junquan, Deputy General Manager of CSG Power Dispatch and Control Center.

HUAWEI CLOUD and data platform provides mass data storage and enormous computing capabilities. They help in integration of data assets from different systems of a power grid company under one platform. Multiple tasks can be accomplished as the platform provides high-speed data processing and sharing.

The State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) is working with Huawei to build a digital platform, IoT platform, and cloud, which will reduce the time for data collection and storage from four hours to 30 minutes.

Huawei uses AI modules into cameras and drones, which helps the O&M team in remotely monitoring the power transmission lines and detecting faults.

It will have a centralized deployment and a remote management of the millions of EVs.  Using AI-powered data analysis, the management efficiency using 5G high-speed networks will increase manifold.
