KEPCO KDN (CEO, Jun Do-bong) announced that it received the Green Technology Certification for four technologies, including smart grid technology, from the Ministry of Knowledge Economy on July 12, becoming the first government-owned corporation which was awarded the certification.
The KEPCO KDN green technologies recognized by the government are three smart grid technologies and a certified e-Document storage technology. The three smart grid technologies are a two-way Data Collection Unit (DCU) technology equipped with wired and wireless access, an Intelligent Electronic Device (IED) technology designed to protect main transformers and power distribution lines, and an Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) smart meter technology.
The wired and wireless combined two-way DCU technology is an integration platform-based data collection unit that was realized through wired and wireless communications between power companies and consumers. The IED technology designed to protect main transformers and power distribution lines is an intelligent automatic voltage control technology that can send desired information by digitalizing the voltage and current signals of 154Kv main transformers and 25.8Kv power distribution lines. The AMI smart meter technology is a digital power meter technology that can remotely monitor electricity consumption information through two-way communications.
CEO Jun said, “KEPCO KDN has invested in R&D over the last decade, and this has brought us good results. In the second half of the year, we will continue to discover additional Green Technol-ogies, including a cloud computing technology which is currently being examined.”
