THE GRID

Transmission power grid in Slovenia consists of more than 3500 km of overhead lines, more than 2000 units of primary high-voltage equipment, more than 5000 components of secondary equipment, and interlinks energy producers with energy consumers. With eight interconnections to the neighboring countries it is well integrated into the pan-European high-voltage transmission system. The grid supplies several major industrial facilities and five distribution grids and is regarded as critical infrastructure of national importance.

PROBLEM STATEMENT

As majority of high-voltage infrastructure is located outdoors, it is exposed to weather conditions, and other environment-related changes. Rain, snow, ice, humidity, temperature variations, air pollution are just some of the factors influencing material degradation and irreversible mechanical damage. Failing to properly manage vegetation around or near power lines can cause damage to the lines or even a fire. In addition, equipment design deficiencies, material and manufacturing deficiencies are a credible risk and timely detection is crucial in preventing power outages.

That is why we at ELES want to do everything to keep the trust given to us by the people. We want to keep innovating and trying to foresee the potential problems and improve our systems to make sure constant supply of energy reaches our user homes and businesses.
