On January 11, 2010, SGCC¡¯s project of ¡°Key Technology Research, Device Development and Application of Power System Digital Real-time Simulation¡± won the First Prize of National Science & Technology Awards (NSTA) during the Awards Ceremony in Beijing. It is the third consecutive year for SGCC to take First Prize since 2007. In addition, SGCC¡¯s another five projects also won Second Prize this year.
National Science & Technology Awards is one of the five major science & technology awards in China. In 2009, 282 projects were awarded, 3 projects with Special Prize, 17 projects with First Prize, and 262 projects with Second Prize.
Key Technology Research, Device Development and Application of Power System Digital Real-time Simulation is a basic research project that could be applied to the planning, design and operation of power grid. After 8 years¡¯ research, the project team has developed the world¡¯s first large-scale power system real-time simulation device with the capacity to simulate a power system including 1000 generators and 10000 bus-bars, and to simultaneously simulate the dynamic process of a large scale power system and the fast electromagnetic transient process of a local network. The successful development of this device will greatly contribute to the safety operation of the power grid by providing tools for the research on the access of new large-scale equipment to power gird, power system incident analysis, electrical control equipment test under the real grid situation, and the research on the power grid operation and planning, especially the research on the safe stable operation and control strategy of a large AC/DC hybrid transmission system. SGCC owns the intellectual property rights of the project research findings. In the last three years, through this project SGCC has achieved a total sale of RMB 30 million Yuan and saved government investment of RMB 100 million Yuan. Another RMB 1 billion Yuan is estimated to be saved after wider application of the project findings.
So far SGCC has established its technical innovation system with rational layout, multi-levels, clearly defined tasks, effective coordination and high efficiency, which has helped the company to win 28 National Science & Technology Awards since 2003.
