Cpri approach pilots

  1. 1. International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 03-04 August 2011 An Approach to smart grid pilots V.Arunachalam CPRICENTRAL POWER RESEARCH INSTITUTEBangalore, India
  2. 2. OVERVIEW 1. Genesis 2. Smart Grid drivers 3. Smart Grid Philosophy 4. Smart Grid definition 5. Smart Grid Characteristics 6. Typical Attributes 7. Need for Pilots 8. Pilots world wide 9. WEF findings 10. Kind of pilots International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 2
  3. 3. GENESIS • The current energy path is unsustainable. • Future patterns of global energy consumption and production – Need at least 50% more energy in 2030 than it uses today • Carbon emissions are set to follow a similar track. International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 3
  4. 4. SMART GRID - DRIVERS The key market drivers behind Smart Grid solutions 1) Need for more energy. 2) Sustainability. 3) Security of supply. 4) Need to embrace renewable energy resources. 5) Ageing infrastructure. Installed capacity = 1,64,836 MW Per capita usage = 612 kwh Energy short fall = 10.6% Demand short fall = 12.1% [As of September 2010] International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 4
  5. 5. Drivers for India Six factors 1. Supply shortfalls - Demand continues to outpace supply. 2. Loss reduction – AT & C loss about 25-30%,. 3. Human element - AMR would lower recording and other errors 4. Peak load management - Direct control or Pricing incentives. 5. Renewable energy – 20,000 MW of solar energy by 2020 6. Technological leapfrogging – Bring in latest technology International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 5
  6. 6. SMART GRID PHILOSOPHY A reform process which aims at optimally utilizing the available energy with demand Integrated IntelligenceDG – Distributed Generation DR – Demand Response Network I2N Courtesy - IEEE International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 6
  7. 7. Smart Grid - definition • A “smart grid” is a digital, self-healing energy system that delivers electricity from generation sources, including distributed renewable, to points of consumption. • It is capable of optimizing power delivery and facilitating two-way flow of power and information across the grid, enabling end-user energy management. International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 7
  8. 8. Smart Grid - characteristics The important characteristics of smart grid are 1. Self-Healing and Adaptive – Rapidly detects re-configures and restores power supply. 2. Interactive with consumers and markets - Motivates and includes the consumer and stakeholders. 3. Best use of resources and equipment - Optimizes assets and operates efficiently. 4. Predictive rather than reactive – the system operation can be planned to avoid emergencies. 5. Accommodates all generation and storage options. 6. Two-way communication across the grid - Enabling end-user energy management. International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 8
  9. 9. TYPICAL ATTRIBUTES 1. AMI 2. Smart Distribution 3. Consumer Portal 4. Smart Pricing 5. Demand Control 6. Building / Home automation 7. Renewable Integration 8. PEV Bay 9. Asset Management 11. Mobile Workforce Management 12. Enterprise Application Integration 13. Business Intelligence 14. Energy Accounting / Audit International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 9
  10. 10. Need for pilots Smart grid pilots are essential Operate in lowered risk environment Field-test technologies Develop understanding Business model implications Regulatory aspects Mainstream roll out. International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 10
  11. 11. OPPORTUNITIES AND CHALLENGES The industry has taken a significant step forward towrdas technology & opportunities to extract more insight and value. key challenges of today’s smart grid pilots: • Lack of regulatory measures. • difficulty to align and allocate risk and reward • Data privacy, cyber security, interoperability and standards • Technologies and pricing structures - make it difficult to understand cause and effect. • Consumer engagement challenges • Metering pilots could not convince the regulator and the consumer over the true benefit. World Economic Forum - www.weforum.org International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 11
  12. 12. Lessons Learned Political and Regulatory Context Right regulatory and policy framework Drive for global standards Scoping Phase Clarity and ambition in design Grid vs Consumer pilots Successful commercial collaboration Experiment with new operating and business models Develop consumer insight Segment consumers by behavior Target business customers Execution Engage and educate consumers Re-engineer in the field Share lessons from the field World Economic Forum - www.weforum.org International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 12
  13. 13. Generation pilots Generation pilots - To integrate all forms of Renewable Energy (RE) with grid especially at LT level. Benefits - Validation of technologically feasible energy sources. Study of grid connectivity challenges. Standardisation of Grid connectivity. Business case for small roof top RE systems, Micro grids formulation and study. International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 13
  14. 14. Transmission pilots Transmission pilots can be planned with the objective of studying WAMS of Transmission Network Benefits - Dynamic insight into Power System International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 14
  15. 15. Distribution pilots Distribution pilots - Aim of Transforming power distribution process in to an information based procedure involving monitoring and control of MV and LV networks. Benefits - Structured network Standardised automation, MV and LV network control AMI Asset management Outage minimisation Peak management Volt / Var control, Load Balancing International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 15
  16. 16. Utilisation pilots Utilisation pilots - objective of addressing End use energy efficiency Demand Side Management Customer premises control. Benefits - TOU options DSM / DR programs Smart buildings / homes Smart appliances control Optimum energy utilisation Plug in Electric Vehicle International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 16
  17. 17. AN APPROACH Smart grid philosophy - centers on removing or minimizing supply – demand gap For instance In the chosen project area restrictions if any are relaxed existing demand will go up. Option 1 – Put RE for the increase Option 2 - Moderate demand Option 3 - Switch of non priority loads. Option 4 - Introduce TOU tariff structure to study load leveling International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 17
  18. 18. BESCOM pilot area – e city 1. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) 2. Smart Distribution 3. Renewable Integration. 4. Condition Based Monitoring (CBM). 5. Consumer web portal International Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 18
  19. 19. CONCLUSION • Pilot study is a requirement. • Focused pilots with converging objectives • Business case for each scenario • Evolving Regulatory frame workInternational Conference on Roadmap for Smart Grid 19
