From April 25 to 27, 2017, the foreign internship for participants was held in China in the framework of the integrated program for members of the youth personnel reserve of the "Rosseti" Group in preparation for the International Youth Energy Forum.
State Grid Corporation of China receives the Forum participants for the second time. During the first visit the young specialists - representatives of Russia - along with project work, had the opportunity to get acquainted with the power facilities of the parent company in Beijing - experimental base for high-voltage power lines of the State Grid Corporation of China, a charging station for electric vehicles, smart grid facilities. This time, Chinese colleagues have invited Forum participants to visit the Training center of State Grid Corporation of China (Engineering School).
The teams from Russia, France, Germany and China lived and worked together in the Center campus, located in the city of Tai’an (Shandong province) and targeted at training the technical engineers. In addition, on the second day of stay the Chinese colleagues have organized a visit to the Electrical center of Shandong, where the participants could get acquainted with the production of high voltage transformers of big power for work on DC and AC lines and the main venue of training centre – Jinan campus, specializing in training of managers and employees, servicing the high-voltage lines. During the visit, the young specialists visited the training of unmanned substation, control center, center for calibration of metering devices, training center on work with measuring transformers, the training ground of the high-voltage power lines.
The Russian team was particularly interested in 600/400 kV power transformer with rectifier for transfer the DC; the French colleagues were more interested in the laboratory for calibration of metering devices, the whole work cycle of which was completely automated and clearly evident and adapted to the utmost for students.
A lasting impression on all the participants made the training ground of the high-voltage power lines for the training of maintenance teams on conducting emergency response and restoration operations at the ultrahigh voltage AC and DC power lines. All the participants acknowledged the experience of the Chinese colleagues on the compulsory internship for three months in the Training centre of all employment in the State Grid Corporation of China employees to be also very interesting.
Briefly interrupted for visit to the Electrical Engineering Center and getting acquainted with the functioning of Training center of State Grid Corporation of China, the teams once again immersed in work on projects. The closer is the final, the more intense the work becomes. At this stage, the participants moved to the practical implementation of their projects. At the first day they reported the results of inter-module work. Despite a short period of time since finishing the Moscow module, the teams demonstrated a significant progress and showed new interesting developments. During a debate in mixed groups, the participants discussed the technologies underlying all four project ideas, their strengths and weaknesses. After making the necessary adjustments of upper-level, the teams moved to the detailed development of projects - selection of test sites, set priorities, plan of implementation.
In the inter-module period before the meeting on May 28, 2017, in St. Petersburg, the participants were tasked to work out the organizational models of implementation and specific technological aspects of the projects.
During the international period, one more participant will join the project - a team of young specialists from SPA “Belenergo”. The presence of the dedicated portal will allow the Belarusian team to join the project and complete the tasks already implemented by members of other teams in remote mode.
Good luck to all the participants of the International Youth Energy Forum! See you in St. Petersburg!
