"Smart" is the development trend of transformers
Reporter: Could you talk about the development trend of the domestic transformer industry?
十二五 ”期间，我国将进入“坚强智能 电网 ”的全面建设阶段，这个庞大的项目将在未来10年内给国内外同行业者带来4万亿的市场机遇。 Wei Zhenxiang: During the " Twelfth Five-Year Plan" period, China will enter the comprehensive construction phase of "Strong Smart Grid ". This huge project will bring 4 trillion market opportunities to domestic and foreign counterparts in the next 10 years. 建设包括发电、输电、变电、配电、用电、调度，预计在未来五年将带来超过6200亿元的电力设备需求。 The construction of smart grid includes power generation, transmission, transformation, distribution, power consumption, and dispatching. It is expected that over 620 billion yuan in power equipment needs will be brought in the next five years.
Through scientific and technological innovation, the realization of intelligent distribution transformers, making the distribution station area better power supply quality, more accurate protection, more economical operation, more convenient management, safer use, is an inevitable trend of the development of the distribution transformer industry. With the gradual increase in awareness of intelligent distribution transformers by industry authorities and users, the distribution transformer industry will usher in a spring of development.
The distribution transformer itself is also an energy-consuming device, and the power-saving operation of the transformer is an important content that the smart grid should fully consider. Compared with S9-type distribution transformers, the intelligent transformer produced by Boruilai only saves 5,348 kilowatt-hours per year in capacity adjustment and 100,000 kilowatt-hours in capacity adjustment during the 20-year life of the distribution transformer. Taking a county-level power supply area as an example, the total capacity of a 10 kV distribution transformer in each county is about 300 megavolt-amperes, which is equivalent to about 1,500 200 kVA distribution transformers. If transformer capacity adjustment technology is used, energy saving is about 96.78 million in 10 years. KWh. Equivalent to about 39,000 tons of standard coal, reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 102,000 tons.
Reporter: The bottleneck facing the development of the domestic distribution transformer industry? How to break through these bottlenecks?
Wei Zhenxiang: Due to overcapacity in domestic domestic distribution transformer manufacturing enterprises, manufacturing plants are competing fiercely with each other, and users have overemphasized the price factor. Distribution transformer manufacturing enterprises currently suffer severe losses.
Distribution transformers are relatively traditional manufacturing industries. For many years, technology research has focused on processes and materials, such as three-dimensional triangular transformers and amorphous alloy transformers. The research on the application of modern control technology in the distribution transformer industry is not enough in the intelligent research of distribution transformers. However, Boruilai has invested a lot of manpower and material resources in intelligent research and industrialization of products in the distribution area, and has made breakthrough progress. Through a large number of actual operations, the intelligent automatic capacity-adjusting and voltage-regulating transformers produced by Boruilai have been well received by users.
Set standards ahead of production
Reporter: The capacity-regulating and voltage-regulating transformer produced by Boruilai can be said to fill the gap in the domestic market, but is not facing a bottleneck in the development of incomplete standards? What kind of policies does the country hope to introduce to promote the development of the entire industry?
Wei Zhenxiang: No standard or unreasonable standard setting will affect the development of the industry. Without standards, there is no norm, and things without norms will be used more cautiously by everyone. The formulation of national standards should be ahead of the production of products. The standards should be formulated according to demand, and then the relevant enterprises should develop and produce according to the standards. Currently we are big
Most of them are supplemented by products, or standards are formulated when problems occur.
The state encourages independent innovation, protects intellectual property rights, and promotes energy conservation and emission reduction, which greatly encourages enterprises to study new products and technologies. At present, the smart transformers produced by Boruilai are still in the trial and promotion stage, mainly because everyone has not realized the full advantages of the product, and the stability and practicability need to be recognized by users during use.
Reporter: Could you talk about how Boruilai's national strategic layout of smart transformers?
Wei Zhenxiang: The promotion and use of smart transformers have a great effect on energy saving and emission reduction, orderly and reasonable use of electricity, and improvement of the life of electrical appliances. The research and production of smart transformers is not only a matter of Boruilai Company. Boruilai Company is willing to Work with peers to promote the development of the smart distribution transformer industry. It is planned that each of the key provinces will jointly produce with a company to reduce transportation and other costs.
Reporter: Except for smart transformers, how are other products of Boruilai in the market?
Wei Zhenxiang: The core technology of Boruilai is the switch and its intelligent control. The application of this technology in different occasions constitutes different products of Boruilai Company. Intelligent switches used in power distribution lines can achieve the purpose of increasing the degree of automation, reducing the time of failure and power failure, and reducing the area of power failure. Intelligent switches are used in the capacitor industry to form intelligent capacitor units, which makes the structure of the reactive power compensation device more reasonable, the compensation effect is better, the price is lower, and the maintenance is more convenient. Intelligent switches used in the distribution transformer industry can greatly reduce the operating cost of the transformer and provide better power quality. The users of intelligent switches, refined reactive power automatic compensation devices, and intelligent, energy-saving transformers produced by Boruilai have spread all over the country.
Development must stand up to loneliness
Reporter: You have talked about the pragmatic development of the enterprise many times. Can you talk about how the company develops pragmatically?
Wei Zhenxiang: The development of manufacturers must be able to withstand loneliness and not make quick successes. In particular, small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises must have the skills and professional focus to survive and develop in the fierce competition, and the skills can be formed by long-term accumulation, and even if they have experienced many failures, the advantages can be formed. But it takes unremitting efforts to maintain this advantage, and a slight slackness will be overtaken by peers. Continuous innovation in the areas they are familiar with, and maintaining the advanced nature of technology, are the basis for the survival and development of small and medium-sized manufacturing enterprises.
Reporter: As a private enterprise, how will we do our utmost to promote industrial development?
Wei Zhenxiang: Do not do vicious competition at the same technical level, or even make a living by making a fake. Constantly digging for user needs and upgrading products to new technological levels, peers naturally will gradually improve their technological level, thereby driving the technological level of the entire industry.
Poor power quality, poor power supply reliability, and insufficient power supply capacity are one of the main reasons for the slow development of the rural economy. With the improvement of living standards, our dependence on electricity is increasing. No power supply.
Compared with urban power supply, rural power supply has the characteristics of wide area, complicated power consumption situation and difficult management. We have been paying attention to the improvement of urban power supply capacity and reliability, and relatively little research on rural power supply. For a long time, we have the concept of rural backwardness and no money, we have to use old technology and equipment. In fact, some technical defects in equipment not only cause frequent failures of rural power grids and poor power quality, but also cause large losses in rural power grids, difficult management, and poor economic benefits of power grid operations. This situation further dampened the enthusiasm of the power supply sector for rural power supply. Research on intelligent and energy-saving new equipment suitable for rural power distribution networks, improving rural power supply conditions, and further promoting rural economic development is the common goal of all employees of Boruilai.
