NPC Ukrenergo jointly with Siemens AG Austria and its subsidiary Siemens Ukraine (SIEMENS) are implementing the project of upgrading SCADA/EMS/AGC/DTS/OMS, the automated dispatch control of the Ukrainian power system.
The project includes upgrades to the system of the upper and substation levels. The new integrated system of the upper level will be equipped with software modules supporting the monitoring and control, automated load frequency control (AGC), resilience analysis of the power system, dispatch simulator (DTS) to preempt abnormal situations in the power system, and management of requests for power equipment removal from service for outage (OMS). On the substation level, the upgrade will involve the replacement of the telemetry units (Remote Terminal Unit) for acquisition and information exchange of telemetry information between Ukrenergo’s facilities using the modern protocol of IEC 60870-5-104.
The new system of dispatch control is necessitated by challenges emerging in conditions of the largely increasing share of RES generation with the growing total installed capacity and the process of integration of Integrated Power System (IPS) of Ukraine into ENTSO-E, which is the main strategic objective of Ukrenergo.
“The state-of-the art complex SCADA/EMS/AGC/DTS/OMS will help us resolve all pressing issues and move up to the new quality level of dispatch control of the IPS of Ukraine, and will enable the implementation of smart grid technologies at the level of trunk grids. New SCADA will have a high level of information protection and will satisfy the existing requirements of the ENTSO-E Continental Europe countries”, commented Vitalii Zaichenko, Director for Management of the IPS of Ukraine – Chief Dispatcher of NPC Ukrenergo.
Under the project, the acquisition and processing of necessary technological information from substations has already been completed, being one of the most time challenging stages of work. Under completion are the inspection of substations to verify input data and the development of the functional design of modules and the whole system.
The SCADA/EMS/AGC/DTS/OMS project is implemented as part of the Second Power Transmission Project (PTP-2) with the financial support from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (IBRD) and the Clean Technology Fund. SIEMENS is the winner of the IBRD’s international tender.
