CLIMATE MAPS

Starting as early as 1940s, RDCPE established a scientific tradition for the study of climate conditions in power grid locations and the impact of climate factors on overhead power line and substation hardware.

The assessment of climate conditions was based on the statistical probability method using meteorological data. The climate conditions were defined based on frequency with which they occurred: once every 5, 10, 15 and 25 years (which translates into probability values of 0.8, 0.9, 0.93 and 0.98 respectively).

The results of the RDCPE climate studies informed the development of the following regulations: “Construction norms and regulations”, section “Loads and impacts” ,“Electric power unit installation rules”, section “Climate conditions”; “Methodological instructions for assessing climate load”, as well as development of regional (specific to a particular region) and background (for all editions of Power Units Installation Rules) climate maps covering wind, icing, wind/ice loads and thunderstorm activity.

To enhance reliability of overhead lines and develop regulations on the impact of climate on power lines in line with international recommendations (such as IEC, SIGRE), industry experts commissioned by RDCPE over the last five years have developed the following corporate standards:

  • «Regulations on assessing climatic parameters and different capability loads in relation to power line’s designation», 2004;
  • «Guidelines on calculating climatic loads in accordance with Power Unit Installation Rules, 7th edition, and development of regional climate maps»;
  • «Guidelines on assessing power line climate loads depending on power line length»;
  • «Guidelines on assessing regional ratios for calculating climate loads»;
  • «Guidelines on selecting climate parameters for the wind, icing and wind/icing loads for challenging regions of the European parts of Russia»;
  • «Instructions on monitoring icing of power lines and strong winds on iced posts», 2005;
  • • • In addition to corporate standards on assessing climate loads, the RDCPE also commissioned development of the regulation document titled “Requirements for substation electric equipment for air temperatures below 25 degrees Centigrade and attendant wind velocities for the Russian Federation regions.

Industry experts have developed and implemented the climate information system for the Russian Federation’s territory that includes a database of long-term monitoring data sourced from Russia’s meteorological stations, and allows for generation of integral distributions and climate values with various probabilities of occurrence in order to determine climate loads for power lines using various statistical probability methods. The meteorological database can be updated automatically with paper or electric records received from different divisions of Russia’s State Meteorological Service, including the Global Database Facility located in Obninsk.

Regional climate maps are based on the powerful modern geoinformation system (GIS). GIS allows for better quality of climate load maps as well as increased productivity of climate experts.

During the last few years industry experts were able to use the latest regulations and information technology to develop the following instruments:

  • icing thickness and wind velocity/icing maps for Orenburg oblast (commissioned by Orenburgenergo company, the subsidiary of Inter-regional trunk grid company OJSC);
  • comprehensive set of climate maps for Sochi power grid region (commissioned by FGC UES): ice thickness, wind pressure, wind load/icing, number of thunderstorm days and thunderstorm duration in hours);
  • climate maps for Stavropol Krai (developed under the auspices of the project to develop instructions for selections of wind, icing and wind load/icing parameters for the challenging regions of European part of Russia): icing thickness, wind pressure and wind load/icing maps;
  • climate conditions were re-verified for the construction or upgrade sites of the following facilities: 330 kV power line Budennovsk – Chiri-Yurt, 330 power line Cherkessk-Baksan, 220 kV power line GPP-2 (internal power line for the Rostov nuclear power plant), facilities under development in Khakassia and Boguchan hydro power plant.

Currently the climate sector is getting ready to start work under a large-scale contract with FGC UES to develop regional climate maps for the icing, wind and icing wind load factors, thunderstorm activity, seismic activity and temperature factors for all Russian Federation regions. The contract activities are scheduled to take place over the next three years.
