UCOM-MHE-11-24-2022.- With an investment of Bs 10.3 million, President Luis Arce Catacora and the Minister of Hydrocarbons and Energy, Franklin Molina Ortiz, delivered this Thursday in the Cerro San Simón community, in the Benian municipality of Baures, the first integrated electrical generation and intelligent distribution system in Bolivia. weichai
“We have come to deliver this hybrid solar plant and the electrical distribution network for Cerro San Simón and all the surrounding communities. This is a very innovative project that our Ministry of Hydrocarbons and Energy, together with ENDE, have come (to these) remote places to provide them with electricity (...), which must be 24 hours a day," said the Head of State.
For his part, Minister Molina stressed that this work will generate clean energy for that region and guarantee access to electricity for the community of Cerro San Simón. "This project allows electricity to reach more than 160 families in this region because all Bolivians have the right to electricity, as stated in our Constitution," said the authority.
The plant has three power sources: solar energy, a bank of lithium batteries and a generator set (diesel), which are controlled and supervised by a master controller ( multicloster box 36) that defines which technology feeds the power circuit. medium and low voltage to the end user. For example, if there is solar energy, the system prioritizes that source; if it is cloudy, it uses the energy stored in the batteries, and if neither of them exists, the electric generator comes into operation.
On the other hand, the distribution network consists of the construction of medium voltage (MV) and low voltage (LV) power lines and transformation stations.
The MV network feeds three distribution transformers of 50 kilovolt amperes (kVA) each, which feed three low voltage distribution circuits ( Smart grid ) and also a programmable public lighting system.
While for the BT network, there are users who have smart meters that communicate via Wi- Fi with a concentrator and with the control platform, where, through a computer, a client is closed or opened individually and Your energy consumption is verified in real time from anywhere in the world via the web .
Both projects, which come thanks to the Electricity to Live with Dignity Program (PEVD) of the Ministry of Hydrocarbons and Energies, will have a significant socioeconomic impact because it opens new business opportunities and ventures such as stores, workshops, restaurants, among others. In addition, it will help improve the quality of life of families with access to 24-hour electricity service.
