In India, the business is implementing a key order to upgrade SCADA and associated systems in the National and Regional Transmission Asset Management Centers. Controlling one of the largest substation and transmission line networks in the world, the Power Transmission Asset Management Centers in India undertake sophisticated monitoring and control of the country’s vast electric grid of more than 270 EHV Substations. In recent months, the business has secured orders to implement Advanced Distribution Management Systems in Maharashtra and Gujarat.
In North America, the business is involved in implementing a slew of clean energy integration, utility operations and grid research projects. For a clean energy producer in California, the business is implementing a project to provide “Balancing Authority” (BA) control services for energy assets. The scope includes “day ahead”, “real-time” and “after the fact” BA monitoring control and compliance services under NERC standards including the California Electric ISO Market interface system. The project will be delivered by the facility called HENOC (Hybrid Energy Network Operation Center) in Fairfield, California, USA. The facilities and personnel involved in the project are certified by USA NERC (North America Electric Reliability Council).
Building upon advanced energy grid simulation and modeling capabilities, multiple research & development and demonstration grant projects are being carried out for partners under contract with California Energy Commission (CEC) and USA Department of Energy (DoE).
With increasing penetration of renewable energy in the grid, the business is engaged worldwide in providing commercial utility control room solutions for grid integration in collaboration with world’s leading EMS-DMS suppliers to build next generation energy power management systems (EPMS). Having successfully completed the first phase of a project to integrate generation plants with utility T&D control room using OSI PI system, the Middle East team of L&T Power T&D’s DES business has been entrusted with the second phase of the project, by a large energy utility in the region.
The offerings of the business are centered around L&T-Spark™, a high-end technology integration platform for utility grid control room operation, especially designed to work in conjunction with field proven EMS-DMS products of leading OEM’s. The platform facilitates integration between tertiary controls from T&D control room and grid automation controls at substation and/or plant control rooms.
L&T-Spark™ consists of L&T-Spark-HECS™, L&T-Spark-CSMR™ and L&T-Spark-SHEMS™, designed for integration of renewable hybrid plants, substations, and electric vehicles respectively. Commenting on the development T. Madhava Das, Whole-Time Director & Sr. Executive Vice President (Utilities), Larsen & Toubro said, “We thank our customers for entrusting these projects with us. We are resolute in advancing the state of art of the digital electric grid solutions worldwide, leveraging our deep domain expertise in the core areas of Power T&D and Renewable Energy”.
S.N. Subrahmanyan, Chairman and Managing Director of Larsen & Toubro added, “The intelligent and resilient electricity grids are crucial to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. We are glad that the digital energy solutions built upon our ethos on ‘technology led sustainable growth’ help customers and countries accelerate the clean energy transition in India and overseas.”
