Implementation expected to reduce SAIFI by 43%
Denver, CO — 2018 IEEE PES T&D — Tuesday, April 17, 2018 — Survalent, a leading provider of advanced distribution management system (ADMS) software, today announced that Da Nang Power Company (DNPC) has completed the first phase of its SurvalentONE FLISR implementation. Phase 1 saw the successful implementation of FLISR on feeders serving the utility’s most critical customers, including two hospitals. The utility is now in the process of implementing SurvalentONE FLISR on its remaining feeders to improve the quality and reliability of electrical power supply for all its government, commercial, and residential customers.
DNPC is an electrical utility serving 300,000 customers in the city of Da Nang, Vietnam. This deployment, the first installation of SurvalentONE FLISR in Vietnam, puts DNPC at the forefront of utility technology in a country committed to modernizing its grid. Survalent’s local partner and integrator, My Phuong Trading Co. Ltd., is assisting DNPC to implement SurvalentONE FLISR on all of its feeders to enable faster fault identification, isolation, and automatic power resupply.
“All eyes are on DNPC as we are the first utility in Vietnam to successfully implement advanced DMS applications into our grid,” said Vo Hoa, deputy director of DNPC. “It was important that we select a vendor we could trust and software that was proven to meet our needs. Originally, we chose Survalent’s SCADA for our control room based on their reputation for delivering modern, reliable software at a low total cost of ownership. The application has been easy to use and configure and we’ve seen noticeable improvements in our control room operations; this gave us great confidence in selecting SurvalentONE FLISR for the next step in our modernization plan.”
Reliable power is vital to Da Nang’s local economy as the city is a popular tourist destination and stage for numerous international events. Previously, operators were required to manually isolate a fault’s location, change the grid connection, and transfer the power, which caused widespread and lengthy power interruptions.
“This project will help to ensure a safe, high-quality electrical supply for our customers,” continued Hoa. “We expect our SAIDI [system average interruption duration index] and SAIFI [system average interruption frequency index] to decrease by 16% and 43% respectively.”
“We’re proud to help advance the modernization of Vietnam’s power supply with the first-ever deployment of our FLISR solution to a Vietnamese utility,” said Steve Mueller, president and chief executive officer of Survalent. “It’s particularly gratifying to know that Da Nang is projected to realize such impressive outcomes as a result of the implementation.”
