Kenya Power Substation Automation Systems
Kenya Power owns and operates most of the electricity transmission and distribution system in the country and sells electricity to over 2.6 million customers (as at April 2014). The Company’s key mandate is to plan for sufficient electricity generation and transmission capacity to meet demand; building and maintaining the power distribution and transmission network and retailing of electricity to its customers. CG Automation together with CG Power have been working with Kenya Power since 2009 to support their extensive re-electrification of the Nairobi and Mombasa regions to improve the reliability of supply to both domestic and industrial consumers. This included the implementation of a programme to upgrade/build 132/66/33kV substations and interconnecting 132kV overhead transmission lines. The programme had to be implemented in 4 phases each of which had to be executed in a short time frame with strict budgetary constraints.
Each substation is based on ZIV´s automation solution utilising RTU and HMI products. The RTU is based on our well established XCell hardware with its multi-protocol communications capability. The protection relays include ZIV’s range of products communicating via the IEC61850 protocol. 5_cases_kenya5_ZIV_SAS_RTU
ZIV Substation Automation & Communication System for Renewable Plants. – 400/220kv Thermosolar Substation. Logrosan, Spain
ZIV designed an IEC61850 protection, automation and communication system for a group of substations, located in the Spanish province of Extremadura, that collect all the power from several Thermosolar plants in the area and deliver it to the REE (Red Electrica de España, Spanish transmission company). The system included an integrated protection and control system for the substations Termosolar-1, Termosolar-2, Colectora and Nodal. (10 P&C pannels and 2 metering pannel fully equipped). It also included the communication system via fiber optic, including ZIV Teleprotection system, and the integrated communication system to connect to REE Valdecaballeros Substation and to the collateral Solaben TV Plant system (six substations).
