2.2.6 Innovations

The Company’s 2016-2020 Innovation Development Program to be potentially extended till 2025 was adopted by the Board of Directors(34). Mid-term implementation plan for 2018-2020 was updated and adopted as a part of the 2017 progress report on implementation of the Company’s Innovation Development Program(35). The goal of the Company’s Innovation Development Program for the mid-term and long-term (till 2025) periods is to shift to the new-generation innovative network with game-changing properties related to reliability, efficiency, availability, controllability and customer-centricity.

2018 Achievements:

1. Transition to 35-110(220) kV digital substations

Project “Implementation of IECInternational Electrotechnical Commission, international standards and conformity assessment body 61850 digital data exchange solutions in relay protection and automation systems on pilot substations of OAOOpen Joint-Stock Company IDGCInterregional Distribution Grid Company of Urals”

The goal of the project is to create smart grids through modern equipment and systems as well as to use IECInternational Electrotechnical Commission, international standards and conformity assessment body 61850 data transfer protocols.

Pilot facility: 110 kV “Kemping” substation

Effect:

The Year 2018 achievements: approval of design documentation, selection of digital 10 kV switchgear, initiation of construction and assembly operations (incl. purchase of equipment). The project envisages data exchange through digital buses, capability of remote control of switches, grounding blades and draw-out elements in 10 kV cells. A 10 kV equipment uses IECInternational Electrotechnical Commission, international standards and conformity assessment body 61850 digital data transfer.

 

2. Transition to digital smart grids with distributed intelligent automation and control system.

Project “Roll-out of metering systems on retail electricity market (0.4 kV, 6 kV, 10 kV). Upgrade/build-up of MISmetering information system. Automation of data collection from MIS” (Permenergo, Chelyabenergo and Sverdlovenergo branches)

The goal of the project is to create a customer-centered automated metering system with smart metering functions (possibility of remote reading of metering parameters, incl. billing and load limitation/disconnection; remote collection of consumption data; multi-tariff function; monitoring of meter status; data exchange).

Effect:

The Year 2018 achievements:

Project “Creation of new services for consumers: Charging infrastructure” (Permenergo, Chelyabenergo and Sverdlovenergo branches)

The goal of the project is to launch charging stations to grant customer-centered services for EVelectric vehicles owners.

Effects:

The Year 2018 achievements: 6 charging stations installed (3 stations in Permenergo, 1 station in Sverdlovenergo, 2 stations in Chelyabenergo).

 

3. Transition to end-to-end performance of business processes and automation of control systems.

Project “Build-up of Production Assets Management System (PAMSProduction Assets Management System)”

Goals of the project:

Effects:

The Year 2018 achievements:

Project “Development of the knowledge management system. Roll-out of the digital system for accumulation, storage and distribution of knowledge”

The project goal is to improve information support of innovative activities, to provide with required knowledge and information on innovative projects and activities.

Effects:

The Year 2018 achievements: deployment of up-to-date ITinformation technologies systems related to knowledge collection and management, incl:

 

4. Application of the latest technologies and materials.

Project “Roll-out of 110 kV remote commercial meters”

The goal of the project is to create autonomous points of commercial metering in 110 kV networks at the boundaries of operational responsibility area for enhanced accuracy and authenticity of data.

Effect:

Pilot facilities for 110 kV meters:

Project “Roll-out of 35 kV remote commercial meters”

Goal, description and effects of the project are similar to the Project “Roll-out of 110 kV remote commercial meters”.

Pilot facilities for 35 kV meters:

Target and actual expenditures in 2018:

Aspects of the innovative development Expense target value, RUBruble million (net of VATvalue-added tax) Expense actual value, RUBruble million (net of VATvalue-added tax)
Transition to digital substations 12.50 29.79
Transition to digital smart grids with distributed intelligent automation and control system 115.10 185.81
Transition to end-to-end performance of business processes and automation of control systems 87.24 131.18
Application of the latest technologies and materials 13.86 0.00
Total 228.70 346.78

Failure to achieve target values in “Application of the latest technologies and materials” was due to aborted tenders. In 2018, we arranged tenders for the projects 5 times, with no contractors designated due to objective reasons.
