The power grid of Vietnam’s largest city is perpetually at risk, so the government approved smart grid development projects, in which the Saigon High Tech Park (SHTP) was included. This important industrial zone is home to 40 companies involved in manufacturing, research, training, and servicing advanced technologies. These companies are highly sensitive customers for the power company, which must reliably and constantly supply power, as well as repair faults immediately after they occur. Schneider Electric to implemented a decentralized, self-healing grid solution on two existing MV networks for the SHTP and its end customers.
In only three months, they moved from customer order intent to commissioning. To satisfy the utility’s needs, Schneider Electric upgraded the MV/LV substations with a decentralized self-healing grid (SHG) system, T200. In the case of a fault on the MV network, the loop will quickly and automatically reconfigure and the outage impact will be greatly reduced. Thanks to this solution, the power company has dramatically reduced its re-energisation times on its two strategic loops supplying the country’s high tech areas.
