Background

China Southern Power Grid Co., Ltd. (China


Southern Power Grid) is a large state-owned
enterprise in charge of the investment, construction
and management of power transmission,
transformation, distribution, etc.
The company wanted to upgrade automatic control
of its power distribution network with wireless
communications technologies. From mid of 2011,
the China Southern Power Grid has started the
construction of small-scale wireless smart grid pilot.

Background

Zhengzhou is a major city and transportation


hub in the central region of China. Zhengzhou
municipal government has decided to speed up the
development of the urban railway transportation
system to improve traffic conditions and support
the city's sustainable development. The government
expected the metros to take 60% of the public
transportation loads in the central business district of
the city.
Six metro lines will be constructed in Zhengzhou
as per layout of metro network , including three
east-west lines, two north-south lines, and one ringshaped line. The total length will be 202.53 km.
Metro line 1 is the first metro line in Zhengzhou,
26.2 km will be constructed in Phase 1 project.

China Southern Power Grid is a large state-owned


enterprise that handles the investment, construction,
and management of power transmission,
transformation, and distribution across five of
China's southern provinces. Guangzhou Power
Supply Bureau is a large power supply company
affiliated with China Southern Power Grid and
provides power supply services to 10 Guangzhou
administration districts and two counties.
The company announced, in the Technology
Development Planning component of its Twelfth
Five-Year
Plan, it would continue researching and
In Energy
applying new power distribution communications
systems (based on wireless communications
technologies) and focus on upgrading its automatic
power distribution network. To accomplish these
tasks, China Southern Power Grid would construct
an integrated data collection platform and optimize
the power distribution system's data analysis
functions.

In mid-2011, China Southern Power Grid began


building small-scale test zones to develop its
wireless smart grid. Guangzhou Power Supply
Bureau was chosen to pioneer the wireless smart
grid and verify whether the smart grid distribution
network could function reliably in highly populated
cities. To this end, Guangzhou Power Supply Bureau
selected Yuexiu District as the pilot area and set
up base stations in the most populated district in
Guangzhou.

Key Challenges

Guangzhou Power Supply Bureau is listed in the


rankings of cities with the largest user density in
China. To improve service efficiency and address
end users' service requirements, Guangzhou Power
Supply Bureau urgently needed to provide automatic
power distribution, automatic and intelligent
metering, video surveillance, and Bring Your Own

by WLAN protocols, the WLAN solution has low bandwidth and
stability, which results in frame freezing, transmission interruption, and
poor user experience.
 Problems for vehicle-mounted devices to upload live videos to

Due to the low uplink data transmission capacity, train-mounted
communications devices cannot efficiently upload live video
surveillance data to operation center, which cannot meet the
requirements of public security protection.

The WLAN solution uses access points (APs) to provide
communications services. A single AP covers a maximum of 200 meters
and has low reliability. To ensure full coverage and high reliability,
a large number of devices that require power supply units must be

Solution

Based on the rich experience in developing LTE end-to-end solutions


and the customer's service requirements, Huawei has provided an all-inone LTE wireless communications solution to provide data transmission
services for the PIS and train-mounted video surveillance system.
The solution is based on professional Huawei network planning
and leverages LTE's advantages in access performance and service
bandwidth in fast moving scenarios. This solution provides
approximately 20 Mbit/s downlink bandwidth, which has set a good
example for the live and HD PIS in the urban railway transportation

industry in China.
The Huawei LTE system works in Time
Division Duplex (TDD) mode, which enables
the system to provide large-bandwidth
uplink data transmission services with
limited frequency resources, meeting the
requirements of the wireless transmission of
live HD surveillance videos.
The system also uses a comprehensive Quality
of Service (QoS) mechanism to perform
refined service priority management. When
the network is not congested, the system has
low delay, minimized packet loss rate, and
high QoS. When the network is congested,
the system ensures that key services have the
required bandwidth resources. The network
bears the service data of the PIS and video
surveillance system, which lowers the network
development costs and lays a solid foundation
for future wireless service expansion.

China Southern Power Grid Chooses
Huawei's eLTE for Smart Grid' Project
Background

China Southern Power Grid Co., Ltd. (China


Southern Power Grid) is a large state-owned
enterprise in charge of the investment, construction
and management of power transmission,
transformation, distribution, etc.
The company wanted to upgrade automatic control
of its power distribution network with wireless
communications technologies. From mid of 2011,
the China Southern Power Grid has started the
construction of small-scale wireless smart grid pilot.

Key Challenges

The construction of a power distribution


communication network faced the following
challenges:
 Unreachable wired network for some areas

In the past, China Southern Power Grid constructed


wired networks. However, it was becoming
infeasible to construct wired networks in some
places such as old urban areas. These and other
shortcomings in the existing system led China
Southern Power Grid to investigate broadband
wireless networks.
 High rent cost and poor quality of public
wireless networks
Public carriers' networks, including 2G/3G network,
failed to meet service requirements due to their poor

sensitivity to the geographic environment, the short-distance
wireless communications technology is only suitable for simple
business application in a small range, unable to meet the fullservice demands of power distribution automation.

Solution

Huawei submitted an ultra-bandwidth wireless automatic


distribution communication network according to the service
requirements of China Southern Power Grid. This solution is
based on 4G eLTE technology, and it was designed to meet the
needs of distribution automation, metering automation, and
distribution network video surveillance services.
This solution adopted an industry-dedicated wireless spectrum
(1785 - 1805 MHz). Under the Non- LOS conditions, the
solution could provide high bandwidth data access services
in both fixed and mobile scenarios, and also some valueadded services such as emergency communication and video
surveillance.
The solution provides the following features:
 High-bandwidth services with wide coverage and large
capacity:
For base station part, Huawei puts the RRU on towers and uses
multi-antenna technology; as to terminal part, Huawei provides
LTE outdoor data collection terminals which can support IP67
protection level, and they can connect with highgain antenna,
DQGRIIHUPXOWLSOHPRGHVVSHFLFWRDYDULHW\RIGHSOR\PHQW
scenarios. For example, in dense citys where 10 MHz
bandwidth is used, Huawei's solution is below:

 The average throughput of a single carrier can reach 20 Mbps,


and coverage radius is as large as 4 km. The solution can satisfy
the high-bandwidth transmission requirements of distribution
automation and smart metering.
 A single carrier could support up to 1,200 online users, and the
number of online users is up to 10,800 for one cell. The features
well meet the requirement of large capacity for smart gird.
 Minimal access latency for precise control
An automatic power distribution system must precisely
control the power distribution services. Especially for remote
control, the E2E delay should less than 1s. Take the application
layer, network management system and other protocols into
consideration, the maximum acceptable wireless access latency
LVPV7RHQVXUHHIFLHQWSRZHUGLVWULEXWLRQ+XDZHLH/7(
uses a minimum access latency solution to ensure it is less than
100 ms. Under "live" conditions, downlink access latency does
not exceed 11 ms (average 8.8 ms), and uplink access latency
does not exceed 59 ms (average 36.9 ms), which fully meets the
requirements of mission-critical applications, such as SCADA.
 Multilevel QoS
Different service applications have different priorities. The LTE
system centralizes radio resource management to ensure endtoend Quality of Service (QoS) based on service levels. Huawei's
LTE QoS mechanism develops priority strategies for multiple
service levels, which ensures that important data, such as remote
control data, is transmitted before other services.
Huawei combined the LTE QoS mechanisms and power service
needs together, and designed the specific priority strategy. The
solution could fully support all the services; meanwhile, it can
ensure the priority transmission of some important data such as
distribution automation remote control data.

:LUHGQHWZRUNFRQVWUXFWLRQZDVJUHDWO\LQXHQFHGE\WKHJHRJUDSKLFDOHQYLURQPHQW
It was infeasible, if not impossible, to build wired networks in certain areas. For
example, construction projects in populated downtown areas must be reviewed and
approved by government civil labor agencies. Such constructions are complicated with
long implementation periods. In addition, these constructions require excessively high
material and labor costs, as well as complicated follow-up maintenance; therefore,
to better support its service development, Guangzhou Power Supply Bureau chose to
construct wireless networks in these areas.
 Public networks were too costly or failed to meet service requirements.
