At the beginning of this year, Xinhua News Agency released the video “Night View of Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Lighting and Reunion”, showing the changes in the satellite light map of the three places from 1992 to the Spring Festival of 2019. As the light gradually becomes stronger and expands, the development trajectory of urban civilization is outlined by the light.

70 years ago, kerosene lamps were the common memory of people of that era. Over the past 70 years, China’s power industry has gone through a process from weak to strong, from closed to open, and has made great achievements that have attracted worldwide attention. By the end of 2018, the national power generation had increased by 1,625 times, the installed capacity of power generation by 1,026 times, the power grid lines by 280 times, and the per capita electricity consumption by 548 times, effectively supporting the rapid economic and social development.

As a key link and an energy allocation platform for the sustainable development of energy and power, the power grid plays an important pivotal role in the development of the power industry. In the past 70 years, from independent decentralization to national interconnection, to the construction of strong smart grid and ubiquitous power Internet of Things, the power grid has transmitted a strong leap in the pulse of the times, injecting strong power into economic and social development.


Inter-provincial and inter-regional networking to ensure power supply

In 1882, China’s first electric light suddenly lit up in Shanghai, the dawn of the electric age in the ancient farming society. After more than half a century of difficult development, my country’s power industry is still very backward.

After the founding of New China in 1949, the electric power industry, an important basic industry of the national economy, was reborn and made great progress. In January 1954, the Songdong-Li Line, the first 220 kV transmission line in my country, was completed, and the 220 kV backbone grid in the northeast was gradually formed.

In the 1970s, the Northwest was still without electricity. The Liujiaxia-Tianshui-Shaanxi Guanzhong 330kV power transmission and transformation project, which was designed, manufactured and installed by my country itself, “quenched its thirst” for Shaanxi, which is extremely short of electricity.

When the spring breeze of reform and opening up blows all over the country, the electric power industry also ushered in the spring of construction. In 1979, the China Electric Power Industry Conference determined that the development of the electric power industry should take the road of networking, and the interconnection planning and construction process of the power grid was started. The Henan Pingdingshan-Hubei Wuchang 500kV ultra-high voltage power transmission and transformation project, which was put into operation in December 1981, opened the prelude to the development of my country’s 500kV power grid.

After 20 years of rapid development, by 2002, my country’s power grid has formed six regional power grids in Northeast China, North China, Central China, East China, Northwest China and South China.

As the voltage level of the power grid continues to increase and the scale of the network continues to expand, problems such as uneven distribution of energy resources and power load levels in various regions have become increasingly apparent. In 2005, my country started the preliminary research work of UHVDC project.

In August 2006, my country’s first UHV AC power transmission and transformation project – 1000 kV Jindongnan-Nanyang-Jingmen UHV AC test demonstration project started. In January 2009, starting from Shanxi, a coal base, and traversing the Central Plains, an ultra-high voltage transmission line from Nanyang, Henan to Jingmen, Hubei was born. This is a new beginning, my country’s power industry has opened a new chapter, and China has become the leader and promoter of the development of UHV transmission technology.

Since the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, a series of UHV key projects such as Harbin-Zheng DC, Binjin DC, Ning-Zhejiang DC, Xitai DC, and Zhaqing DC have been put into operation, and the ability to transmit power across provinces and regions has been significantly improved.

On September 26, on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China, the two major innovative projects that marked my country’s power grid technology reaching a new height in the world’s power field – Zhundong-Wannan ±1100 kV UHV DC transmission project, Sutong 1000 kV The AC UHV GIL integrated pipe gallery project was completed and put into operation.

Seventy years of trials and hardships, the large power grid traverses China. Driven by economic and social development and scientific and technological progress, my country’s power grid has gradually become a super-large power grid with the world’s strongest power transmission capacity, the largest new energy grid-connected scale, and the longest record of safe operation.

Strong Smart Grid Integrates into Smart Life

With the rapid development of clean energy, scientific and technological progress and the continuous improvement of the level of informatization, the power grid is moving towards intelligence. In 2010 and 2011, “strengthening the construction of smart grid” was written into the “Government Work Report” twice and included in the “Outline of the Twelfth Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development”, and my country’s smart grid has entered a stage of rapid development.

In recent years, my country has carried out a lot of work in smart grid planning and research, technical research, equipment development, standard construction and engineering pilots, and has achieved a series of results. The international influence of smart grids has been significantly improved.

In 2009, the company proposed a smart grid development strategy, and the pace of smart grid construction has been significantly accelerated. The company has completed the medium and long-term planning and the “Twelfth Five-Year” plan for the intelligent power grid of the State Grid and its affiliated provinces (autonomous regions and municipalities), released the “Smart Grid Technical Standard System Plan”, and took the lead in proposing the smart grid technical standard system in the world. A series of smart grid project pilots have been launched. In 2010, the first comprehensive demonstration project of smart grid in my country, the comprehensive demonstration project of smart grid in Shanghai World Expo Park, was completed.

At present, smart grids have been widely used in distributed energy utilization, electric vehicle charging, smart residential areas, etc., to promote people’s production and life intelligence.

At the same time, the development of urban distribution network marked by the construction of smart grid has also entered the stage of modernization. In recent years, the company has focused on the construction of new industrialization and urbanization, based on stable growth, structural adjustment, promotion of reform, and improvement of people’s livelihood, with the goal of meeting electricity demand, improving power supply quality, and promoting intelligent interconnection, and strives to build a first-class modern distribution network.

In 2017, the company in Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Qingdao, Nanjing, Suzhou, Hangzhou, Ningbo, Fuzhou, Xiamen 10 large cities, comprehensively improve the reliability and power supply quality of urban distribution network, plans to spend 4 years to build “safety” Reliable, high-quality and efficient, green and low-carbon, intelligent and interactive” world-class urban distribution network.

At present, in order to meet the needs of energy transformation, the power grid construction continues to develop rapidly, the substation capacity and the length of the line circuit grow rapidly, the power transmission, resource allocation capabilities, and the grid-connected and absorbing capacity of renewable energy continue to improve. direction forward.

Ubiquitous power Internet of things construction promotes energy transformation

On June 13, 2014, General Secretary Xi Jinping proposed a new energy security strategy of “four revolutions and one cooperation” at the sixth meeting of the Central Financial and Economic Leading Group, leading the development of my country’s energy industry into a new era.

With the deepening of the clean and low-carbon transformation of energy, the large-scale development and utilization of renewable energy, the rapid development of interactive energy facilities such as distributed energy, energy storage, and electric vehicles, various new forms of energy use continue to emerge, and customers continue to have diverse needs. promote.

At the beginning of 2019, the company put forward the strategic goal of “three types, two networks, world-class”, and released a clear signal that digital technology should be used to empower traditional power grids, continuously improve the power grid’s perception ability, interaction level, and operation efficiency, and strongly support various types of power grids. Energy access and comprehensive utilization, continuous improvement of energy efficiency, transformation from “good use of electricity” to “good use of energy”, and a revolution in energy production and consumption.

The construction and operation of “two networks” is an important material basis for building a world-class energy Internet enterprise. On the one hand, persistently constructing and operating a strong smart grid can improve the ability of energy resource allocation and the level of intelligence, and better meet the needs of intensive development of power bases and large-scale grid-connected access such as new energy, distributed energy, and energy storage. On the other hand, the construction of the ubiquitous power Internet of Things can provide strong data resource support for the safe and economic operation of the power grid, improve business performance, improve service quality, and cultivate and develop strategic emerging industries. Innovation, business innovation and value creation forge a new path.

The upsurge is surging, and the construction of the ubiquitous power Internet of Things is continuing. The “Online State Grid” APP is popularized and applied to provide low-voltage residential customers with basic services such as payment and electricity, auxiliary energy consumption analysis, points, shopping malls and other special services; “Energy Internet Intelligent Terminal Core Chip Reliability Technology” national and local The construction of the Joint Engineering Research Center has begun, which will promote the better application of big data, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things in the construction of the ubiquitous power Internet of Things; the “multi-station integration” demonstration project of the 35kV Yinjiabang Substation in Zhangjiang Science City, Pudong, Shanghai The start of construction will integrate the functions of data centers and energy storage stations; the “Kaishan Island Off-Grid Island Intelligent Microgrid Project” featuring comprehensive status perception, efficient information processing, convenient and flexible applications, etc., has been put into operation, becoming the ubiquitous Internet of Things in my country’s islands. The innovative practice of perception system…

From the digital upgrade of traditional businesses, to the development of emerging businesses, to the aggregation of industrial kinetic energy, a safer, greener and smarter power supply and use model will bring more abundant and intelligent energy to meet people’s energy needs for a better life and promote the development of the times. energy.
