The development of the wire and cable industry has led to an increase in the amount of aluminum used.
What is the state's plan for it? During the “Twelfth Five-Year Plan” period, how strong is the demand for aluminum materials in power transmission cables ? At the 6th Shanghai Copper and Aluminum Summit-Aluminum Industry Chain Forum, from Jiangsu Zhongtian Technology Engineer Feng Zhuhua of Co., Ltd. explained for us his outlook on the demand for transmission cables from strong smart grids.
The so-called strong smart grid refers to the six major links of power system generation, transmission, transformation, distribution, power consumption and dispatching based on a strong grid framework, supported by a communication information platform, and by means of intelligent control. Covers all voltage levels and achieves a highly integrated integration of "power flow, information flow, and business flow". China Nonferrous Network. Smart grid is both a current transmission network and an information transmission network. It requires the integration and integration of transmission technology and information technology.
China has incorporated the construction of a strong smart grid into the 12th Five-Year Plan. China Nonferrous Network. According to the National Smart Grid's "Three Steps" strategic plan, 2009-2010 is the pilot phase of planning, 2011-2015 is the stage of comprehensive construction, 2016-2020 is the stage of leading improvement, and it is expected to reach the "three steps" in 2020. The "Hua" synchronous power grid forms a "five vertical six horizontal one ring network" main grid and builds a strong smart grid. China Nonferrous Network. This year is the first year of the phase of comprehensively building a strong smart grid. The main plans include accelerating the construction of UHV grids and urban-rural distribution networks, initially forming a smart grid operation control and interactive service system, and achieving major breakthroughs and widespread application of key technologies and equipment.
Engineer Feng also mentioned that overhead power lines and power cables are needed from the power plant to the end user, and the amount of aluminum for long-distance power transmission will not decrease. China Nonferrous Network. As the performance of aluminum alloy is gradually recognized by users, the proportion of aluminum alloy wire usage will increase significantly, and the conductor material for cable cores will also develop in the direction of aluminum alloy. He pointed out that by the end of the "Twelfth Five-Year Plan", the increase in the amount of aluminum used in cables is about 3 million tons.
