Introduction

According to the new trends in power system supervision,
XM

has formulated a
project to conceptualize, design and implement an Advanced Supervision and
Control system in the Colombian power system based on the paradigms of
WAMS

and
WAMPAC
.


The
project proposes the radical evolution from the traditional Energy
Management Systems being used today, towards the utilization of new
technologies for measurement, analysis, computing and communications for
control center operations
.


The planned solution will integrate “electrical” data with non
-
traditional asset
monitoring data to implement a platform for complete system awareness.

Challenges for Fast Growing
Economies


GDP and demand growth above 5%


Increased population densities around
cities


“Deficient” urban planning


Increasing land costs


Tighter environmental laws


Sub
-
transmission and Distribution
networks close to their capacity and
their life cycle



How to serve cities hungry for energy
with improved reliability?


How to serve them as economically
as possible?


Which technologies will enable all this
non converging goals?

What do we have today?

Current
WAMS

Implementation
:


16 Substations with
PMU

monitoring


Psymetrix
/Alstom
PhasorPoint

PDC


OpenPDC

as
PDC

for Research and Development


Next Steps
:


Ongoing installations for additional 24
PMUs


Ongoing prototype development for
IDDs

at
three substations for Collaborative Protection
and State Reconciliation


Developing a Road Map with ISA (XM’s Parent
C
ompany and Transmission Owner) for including
non operational variables for Dynamic
Transmission Operation and Planning


International Collaboration
:


Currently developing the formulation for
technical assistance support from
USTDA

for the
design of the Data Bus and Gateway functionality
for the
iSAAC

project in association with Quanta
Technology.

Final Remarks…

The challenge for the new electric industry is to
monitor, control and protect the energy
infrastructure on a new market environment with
more dynamic energy flows.


With an improved reliability promise !
