ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates--11 Sep--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

Huawei launches a series of 5G and AI-based innovative energy solutions at World Energy Congress 2019, under the theme 'Innovation Is Redefining Energy'. Huawei collaborated with over 70 energy ministers, 500 energy CEOs, and numerous partners, with these attendees coming from over 150 countries to expand the vision driving sustainable energy development by innovative ICT. Huawei shared thoughtful insight into 5G, AI, cloud, and other innovative technologies, how it is reshaping the energy industry, and how it built the core of a digital world to accelerate the transformation of the energy industry from digitalization to intelligence.

Ji Xiang, General Manager of the Energy Business Dept, Huawei Enterprise BG, said: "The development of human civilization is closely linked with energy evolution. A hundred years ago, the large-scale usage of electric power marked the beginning of the second industrial revolution. Communications technologies, such as 2G, 3G, and 4G, ushered in the third industrial revolution and connected people together. Now, 5G, AI, cloud, and many other innovation information and communications technologies (ICTs) are bringing in the fourth industrial revolution. 5G features the high speed, low latency, and large capacity, allowing ubiquitous connectivity. AI highlights the high computing power, low power consumption, and all-scenario application, enabling pervasive intelligence. Cloud supports virtualization, ultra-large scale, and high scalability, permitting extensive sharing. Together, they fuel digital transformation of all industries and build the foundation for the future digital world. Huawei is dedicated to cooperating with partners and customers to make intelligent energy a reality."

5G Sharing Base Station Solution

5G base stations use high frequency bands and have small coverage, leading to high base station density. Therefore, 'limited space for multiple sites' has become a restriction that hinders fast deployment of 5G networks. Huawei provides a new solution for building 5G base stations on substations, which appropriately addresses this issue. The solution enables energy suppliers, tower providers, and carriers to benefit by sharing infrastructure resources. Energy suppliers provide physical bases for substations, which carriers can use to deploy 5G base stations. Carriers lease substation cabinets and power supply from energy providers to ensure uninterruptible power supply (UPS) for 5G base stations. Using Huawei's unique 5G antenna technology, tower providers can fully utilize and integrate their tower resources by mounting multiple types of antennas onto one mono-pole tower.

5G Mining Solution

Huawei and Yuexin Intelligent Machinery collaborated to develop applications with 5G technology. By using the Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communication (URLLC) feature of 5G networks, Huawei successfully applied 5G networks to the largest molybdenum mine in China and enabled autonomous driving of mining trucks and remote control of excavators. On-site excavators in another mine in Luoyang, China, can be remotely controlled from Huawei's exhibition hall in Shenzhen via the 5G network. The two locations are over 2,000 kilometers apart. Using the Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) feature of 5G networks, mining companies can conduct AI-based analytics for a large number of on-site videos captured by fixed and mobile cameras to facilitate precise and efficient mining. 5G technology will help reduce many manual operations in the mining industry and enable unmanned smart mining in the future.

Intelligent AI Power Line Inspection Solution

Huawei and Zhiyang Innovation jointly developed an intelligent power transmission solution. The solution integrates front-end reasoning, cloud-based training, and cloud-edge synergy. It uses Huawei's Ascend AI processors to build an intelligent power transmission monitoring system. Huawei Atlas 200 AI acceleration modules with embedded Ascend AI processors are integrated into pole and tower monitoring units. After installation, the units can perform intelligent analysis for the poles and towers. The modules work with the cloud to update detection algorithms in real time and automatically monitor and transmit potential hazards such as mechanical intrusion, foreign objects, and bird nests to the monitoring center with no manual assistance. In this way, the efficiency of power line inspection is improved more than five times that of the traditional method, and secure and stable power line operation is ensured.

Intelligent Distribution Transformer + Edge Computing

Huawei, China Electric Power Research Institute, State Grid Shandong Electric Power, State Grid Jiangsu Electric Power, NARI Group, and XJ Group jointly launched a new type of smart distribution transformer. The new smart distribution transformer adopts the 'software-defined terminal' design concept and uses an open edge computing architecture. Upgrade and additional features can be applied flexibly through apps, enhancing the configuration of resources and improving response to requirement changes by the power distribution network. The product implements innovative plug-and-play and interconnection between devices. It conducts local comprehensive analysis and intelligent decision-making on various types of collected data and effectively supports service requirements such as power failure analysis, power distribution device status management, electric vehicle charging control, and high-quality customer service.
