Both developing and industrialized countries are heavily investing to upgrade their power systems to ensure reliable and efficient power supplies and to facilitate energy trading with neighboring countries. At the same time, the traditional transmission network model is coming under pressure from the spread of distributed generation.
With few technological breakthroughs likely in new materials, efforts to develop new HVAC infrastructure have been focused on trying to reduce costs, with digital technologies expected to play a significant role in improving the efficiency of both individual components and entire systems.
Making new HVAC infrastructure more efficient and upgrading existing systems is increasingly important. Possibilities include installing new power transformers and replacing obsolete equipment such as measurement transformers, circuit breakers and disconnectors, control and monitoring equipment, protection equipment and secondary systems.
CESI can advise on all technical matters associated with the development of complex HVAC infrastructures, from feasibility stages to project implementation, in particular:
- Planning studies
- Operational studies
- Regulatory and market studies
- Technical specification and procurement assistance
- Environmental and social impact assessments and permitting
- Design review
- Construction and commissioning supervision
- Asset management and maintenance optimization
- Grid code compliance
