Since the reform and opening up, Shandong Jining Power Grid has written a glorious chapter of great development and great leap. Up to now, Jining Power Supply Company has 225 substations of 35 kV and above, with a substation capacity of 20,359,400 kVA, a transmission line of 5,844 km, a maximum power load of 6.06 million kilowatts, and an annual sales of more than 20 billion kwh.

Jining is an important channel for the West-to-East Power Transmissionof Shandong Power Grid. After the reform and opening up, Jining Power Grid ushered in a spring of rapid development. At the same time that the main network of Jining Power Grid has developed by leaps and bounds, the development of distribution networks is also changing with each passing day.


In the 1990s, Jining Electric Power Bureau took measures to accelerate the construction of rural power grids. In 1993, the city realized village and village electrification. In 1995, households were electrified. In 1998, the implementation of the urban farm network construction and reconstruction project was initiated, 42 urban distribution lines were reconstructed, 24,874 rural distribution transformers and 366 distribution lines were reconstructed, which greatly improved the quality of Jining urban and rural power supply.

In the new century, Jining Power Supply Company continued to develop distribution automation systems in urban core areas and county towns. This system construction is equivalent to installing eyesfor the distribution network, realizing online monitoring of equipment, online collection of operational status data and accurate location of fault areas, fundamentally changing the past blind adjustmentstatus, bringing production methods and A major shift in management style.

Now it is possible to complete the fault range location within 1 minute, and provide multiple power-on-recovery solutions for fault isolation and non-faulty areas within 2 minutes, and automatically complete fault identification, isolation and non-faulty section recovery power supply, and the repair personnel accept within 5 minutes. The instruction rushed to the faulty section. At present, Jining Power Supply Company has completed the commissioning of 1498 intelligent distribution lines, with an automatic coverage rate of 100%, achieving a terminal online rate of 99%, a remote correct correct action rate of 100%, and a FA correct action rate of 90%. The average customer power outage time was shortened from the original 120 minutes to less than 5 minutes.

At the same time, Jining Power Supply Company continued to upgrade the urban and rural power grids and continuously optimize the distribution network structure and layout. Since 2015, Jining has implemented a new round of rural power grid reconstruction and upgrading projects, newly built 1626 kilometers of 10 kV lines, and replaced 5116 sets of new equipment; completed 393 small towns (central villages) and 31 villages with insufficient power and power projects. The construction has realized the power supply to the village, and the average household capacity has reached 1.92 kVA, which greatly improved the reliability of power supply.

High-quality development of distribution network
