  • A self-healing smart grid within Vietnam’s largest city

Default Alternative Text
A self-healing smart grid within Vietnam’s largest city Thu Thiem Power Company faced a dilemma: how to improve power reliability for industrial customers.

The Thu Thiem Power Company and Schneider Electric improve power reliability

The Thu Thiem Power Company specializes in energy sales and power network services. It supplies power to the 10 million inhabitants of Vietnam’s largest urban area, Ho Chi Minh City.

Within that city is a critical industrial zone where 40 companies are busily manufacturing, researching, training and servicing advanced technologies. Reliable power is essential for these high-tech end users, which keeps pressure on Thu Thiem Power to resolve any outages as they occur.

Local government has approved smart grid development to supplement the city’s power grid. To safeguard power service for its industrial customers in this zone, Thu Thiem Power relies on Schneider Electric and EcoStruxure™ for a decentralized, self-healing grid that supports two existing medium-voltage underground networks.

The self-healing smart grid provides fault isolation and service restoration, reducing the duration and impact of any fault on the MV network by reconfiguring the loop – which happens in less than a minute for 66% of customers.
