| Beijing, May 28, 2007-ABB, the world's leading power and automation technology group, continues to strengthen R & D cooperation with Chinese institutions of higher learning in the field of power and automation. Recently, ABB China R & D Center and Tianjin University signed a two-year cooperation project to jointly carry out research on adaptive auto-reclosing of power systems. |
Kurt Kaltenegger, head of the ABB Research Center, said: "This is one of the many collaborations between ABB and Chinese universities and research institutions. For a technology company like ABB, innovation is to maintain our competitive advantage and continue to grow The cooperation with Tianjin University can not only enhance ABB's technical advantages in relay protection, but also help university researchers to effectively transform scientific research results into competitive products to meet the market and customer needs for grid stability. . "
Kurt added that ABB invests 5% of total sales annually into research and development. The ABB Group established the China R & D Center in 2005, dedicated to the research and development of power systems, manufacturing processes and robotics. Adequate research and development funds help us to develop high-level research and development cooperation with many universities with national key construction disciplines and cultivate local scientific research talents.
Tianjin University is a well-known high-level university in China. Its "power system and automation" specialty is a national key construction discipline. The "power system simulation and control" laboratory has also been rated as a key laboratory of the Ministry of Education. Auto recloser and other fields enjoy a good reputation. In 2005, the ABB Group China Research Center had successfully cooperated with Tianjin University on special phenomena and requirements of relay protection of UHV AC transmission systems, and conducted a comprehensive study on the performance of ABB relays in UHV transmission systems. .
This project is a further deepening of the cooperation between the two parties in the field of relay protection. Auto-reclosing is commonly used in UHV and UHV transmission lines. Its purpose is to put the line back into operation after the transient fault is eliminated, thereby restoring the normal operating state of the entire system in the shortest time. However, if the fault is permanent, blind coincidence will cause more serious harm to system stability and electrical equipment than in the case of a short circuit in normal operating conditions. Adaptive auto-reclosing, by identifying the nature of the fault, avoids blind re-coupling in the event of a permanent fault, in order to minimize the economic loss caused by the fault to the power system, and provides stability and safety issues for high-power transmission in China's narrow power corridors. solution.
ABB's relay protection products have always taken the leading position in the industry in ensuring the reliability of power supply and helping customers improve power efficiency. The products are distributed in the power generation, transmission and distribution fields of 500kV hub substations in the country's major power grids, the left bank power station of the Three Gorges Project, and the Qinshan Nuclear Power Station in Zhejiang. PetroChina, Sinopec, papermaking, pharmaceutical and other industries.
At present, ABB (China) Co., Ltd. has established research and development cooperation relationships with many well-known local universities, including high-voltage electrical equipment and system control research with Tsinghua University, high-voltage technology research with North China Electric Power University, and dynamic characteristics of power systems. Sexual cooperation research, power system relay cooperation research with Tianjin University, high voltage electrical equipment cooperation project completed with Chongqing University. In addition, ABB also set up ABB scholarships at Xiamen University of Technology to train undergraduate students in electrical engineering and automation orders; donated 9 sets of MNS low-voltage switch cabinets using international cutting-edge technologies to the Electrical Engineering College of Xi'an Jiaotong University Used for demonstration and teaching, and signed training and recruitment cooperation agreements three times in a row.
