As a new concept, cellular power grid will greatly enhance the security and reliability of a power grid. It involves a PCT application
In all cases, the reliability and safety of power grid are primarily important. Cellular grid is able to provide effective support and guarantee.
The distributed power grid, up to date, is constructed through steps by many key nodes at different levels. A single node failure would affect all users connected to the node and its sub notes, while cellular grid is structured by different voltage levels, each level includes nodes supporting and compensating each other. This means that when a node at a level fails, the node will be isolated from other nodes at the same level by the intelligent gateway, and through effective compensation, it ensures the overall power supply of the level, in order to achieve safety and reliable power supply.
To increase the overall efficiency of power generation, transmission and distribution system is another advantage of cellular grid.
The level design concept of cellular grid, can fully mobilize small renewable clean energy power generation enterprise or family of power generation by merging to the grid to increase power generation capacity. At the same time, at in the same level, we can use the network to mobilize the existing power to the power shortage areas to make full use of the electric energy. This is not possible in the existing distribution system.
We can also build a new power trading platform with cellular grid.
Unlike the distributed power grid where there is a clear distinction between power providers and consumers, cellular grid unrealizes the boundaries between power providers and consumers, both providers and consumers can be user of the trading platform. This is good for direct buying and selling. For example, a user lives in a province, can purchase electricity from a power provider from another province according to his own demand on consumption and price. At the same time, it also facilitates to non-currency energy trading and non-equivalent electric energy trading between providers.
