Introduction to smart power grid

Energy clean and low-carbon transition is an inevitable trend of energy development in China. Promoting the transformation of China's energy structure is an important measure to implement General Secretary Xi Jinping's energy strategy of "Four Revolutions & One cooperation". Developing clean energy is an important starting point for optimizing the energy structure, ensuring the sustainable supply of energy and promoting the construction of ecological civilization. Accelerating the construction of a clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient modern energy system, promoting a clean and green way to meet the demand for electric energy and realizing green, low-carbon and sustainable development is the only way for China's energy development. In The 13th Five-Year Plan for Economic and Social Development of the People's Republic of China, it is clearly put forward to promote energy revolution, accelerate energy technology innovation, build a clean, low-carbon, safe and efficient modern energy system, increase the proportion of non-fossil energy and promote the clean and efficient utilization of fossil energy such as coal, accelerate the development of wind, solar, biomass, hydro and geothermal energy, and develop nuclear power safely and efficiently, strengthen the construction of energy storage and smart grid, develop distributed energy, and promote energy-saving and low-carbon power dispatching. According to the strategic deployment of current national energy development, China's total energy consumption should be kept within 6 billion tons of standard coal by 2030, with non-fossil energy accounting for about 20%. Carbon dioxide emission per GDP decreased by 60-65% compared with 2005. The energy consumption per GDP has reached the current world average level, and the energy efficiency of major industrial products has reached the international leading level. The capability of independent innovation in China has been comprehensively improved, and the level of energy science and technology ranks in the forefront of the world. China will maintain its energy self-sufficiency at a high level, and preliminarily build a modern energy system. By 2050, the total energy consumption should be basically stable, with non-fossil energy should accounting for more than half of the total energy consumption, and a civilized energy consumption society will be built.

Institute of Energy of Hefei Comprehensive National Science Center has four research directions. Among them, the direction of smart power grid is built under the leadership of Dean Ding Lijian by relying on Hefei University of Technology. The direction of smart power grid builds four platforms around smart grid and smart power consumption, namely, smart multi-energy power system, advanced power conversion, energy storage system, and equipment and facility security. Through the deep integration of the power and energy industry with advanced information and communication technology and intelligent control technology, it realizes industrial upgrading, promotes the development of new materials and equipment, effectively support a high proportion of renewable energy access, promotes modern energy consumption that is interconnected, open and shared, interactive between supply and demand, efficient and energy-saving, and smart in electricity use, realizes large-scale development and utilization of renewable energy, and meets the need for massive access of distributed energy, electric vehicles and various new electricity facilities, promotes the greening of terminal energy, creates new economic growth points for the country, and enhances national competitiveness, so as to ensure national energy security, support green development and reform of the energy structure on the supply side and consumption side. Through construction, the Institute of Energy will become the most important R&D team in the field of smart power grids in the world in the future, and provide Chinese suggestions for leading the development of world energy and power.
