Discussion on Technological Advance at Macao Electric Power System


With this topic, the author will discuss the possible new technologies to be applied at the context of Macao electric power system, considering the nature and needs of the Macao Special Administrative Region, as well as strength and weakness of the electric power industry in Macao. Scope of the technologies will cover power generation, transmission, distribution and customer service, adopting the latest development of information technology, communication technology, green energy management, as well as those related to Internet of Things that may be applied into electric power system. With the application of the advanced technologies into the Macao electric power system, the ultimate purpose is to achieve excellent power supply reliability performance and high quality of customer service in Macao, supporting the ambitious smart city development plan of the local community.

Development of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area Underground Cable Networks and Its Smart Operation Systems


The development of Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) will rival world’s leading bay areas and megacities. This will bring new opportunities for the electrical power industry while raising the bar for high-quality development. It is possible to predict that the area’s power transmission and distribution will largely rely on underground cable network, which will free up congested urban areas while becoming more resistant to environmental hazards and reserving urban visual landscapes.

Unlike traditional power networks, the operation and maintenance of these “invisible” transmission networks face great challenges. Luckily with advancements in the Internet of Things and smart sensing technologies these obstacles can be overcome. This report will address the above issues, including the development of underground cable network within megacities, the technical challenges faced, and the technological progress on smart monitoring and maintenance system.
