3 KAHRAMAAKAHRAMAA is the sole distributer of Electricity and Water in the State of Qatar.In the Electricity sector KAHRAMAA operates with 230 Primary High Voltage Substations connected by a total of 1,880 km of Primary Overhead Transmission Lines and 2,530 km of underground HV cable network. The network is coupled with 12,150 Medium voltage substations (11 kV) and more than 11,600 kilometres of underground and overhead cable lines.KAHRAMAA maintains a water infrastructure consisting of 6789 Km of Water pipeline networks with 28 Storage Reservoirs having total capacity of Million Gallons.
4 Electricity Network Affairs MissionObjectivesTo provide Safe, Secure, Reliable & Adequate electricity supply to all type of customers in the state of Qatar, in conformance to international and regional standards and in a timely manner with the least possible cost.1. Customer SatisfactionUnderstand and meet customers’ needs and expectations2. Supply EfficiencyHigh Quality Power supplyDispatch IPP through a secure and reliable network3. QualityMeet the overall Electricity quality needs through least number of Power Interruptions & Eliminate Outages
5 Electricity Network Planning Committed to Plan and Design Qatar’s Electrical Network development using efficient technologies, data and materials and strive to satisfy our customers.Coordinate with other utility agencies to have a harmonious expansion of State’s assets and infrastructure.Review and update Material Specifications. Ascertain the international standard materials are used in KM’s Network.
6 Electricity Sector, Some Challenges How toImprove Power System ReliabilityMaintain Power QualityOptimally Utilize the Power Delivery AssetsReduce the equipment failuresReduce the planned / unplanned outages in the systemIncrease the awareness for energy Conservation - TarsheedIntegrate Diesel Generator based micro grids into main network
7 Electricity Sector, Some Challenges Fishbone Diagram is helpful in identifying potential factors causing an overall effectEquipment FailureReduces System ReliabilityReduces Power QualityUnder utilization of AssetsIncreases Network CostUn utilized Installed CapacityOver utilization of AssetsIncrease in Equipment FailuresDecrease in Power QualityOutagesReduces System ReliabilityReduction in utility income
8 Raising to the Challenge Bigger challenges provide bigger opportunitiesMeeting these challenges gives raise to better rewardsRewards are in terms to Reliability, Quality, efficiency and economic benefits to consumers and to the utilityQatar’s Electrical Network hasPrimary Substations – 230Secondary Substations – 12,159Consumers – 295,000and increasing
9 The Solution - An Enterprise GIS System A GIS System that can handleComprehensive and accurate inventory of ElectricalAssetsInterconnectivity between the assets with Underground and Overhead linesA Comprehensive Service Information that is integratedto the GIS System and that can be retrieved from withinthe GIS softwareTraceable network from the Electrical feeder to theconnected customers along with all the electrical assetsin betweenA system that can be integrated with any database withease.
10 The Solution - An Enterprise GIS System An Electrical aware GIS system canMake it easy to locate the Electrical AssetsHelp create a comprehensive maintenance schedule for a given area / zoneIdentify the customers effected for switching programsEffectively managing high priority areas while preventive maintenance schedulingIdentifying the electrical feeders in an outageIntegrating customer messaging system for any electrical activityElectricity NetworkCablesOHLTransformerSwitchBus BarCircuit BreakerLand BaseTopographyParcelsGIS Databases
11 Enterprise GIS System in KAHRAMAA KAHRAMAA has awarded a contract to implement an Enterprise GIS solution using ArcFM technologyArcFM™ is a powerful extension of ESRI's ArcGIS® platform that provides a complete, enterprise utility solution specially for energy sector.The ArcFM Solution allows utility businesses to make use of a single integrated environment to manage and map multiple assets, leveraging all the power of ArcGIS’s object-oriented system.
