Operation by remote control significantly boosts the reliability of power supply by reducing production time for operational switching and lowering the risk of errors by operating staff. Controlling the operation of switching devices and grounding disconnectors is done from two points – the grid management centre of the Amur regional trunk electricity grid and the dispatch point of the Yakutia regional dispatch centre.
Installing advanced technological functions for operating equipment at energy supply centres is one of the priority tasks in the digital transformation of the single national electricity grid. These projects are being implemented at sites equipped with digital communications and up-to-date automated equipment.
At the Amga and Nagorny 220 KW switching stations, built in 2019-2020, up-to-date Russian-produced automated systems have been installed in directing technological processes as well as microprocessor-based protection relays and smart electricity metering.
