Huawei presented its innovative Intelligent Distribution Solution (IDS) at the 26th World Energy Congress in Rotterdam. Developed in collaboration with ecosystem partners, the IDS aims to tackle the electric power industry’s most pressing challenges, including high line loss, unreliable service, and the burden of managing new energy loads.

To address these challenges, power companies are turning to digital solutions that harness the power of data, connectivity, and automation. The digitisation of the power distribution network—often referred to as the ‘last mile’—is a critical element in the modernisation of the conventional power grid system. This ‘last mile’ is essential as it ensures the delivery of electric power directly to consumers’ homes, businesses and industry.  Huawei’s IDS leverages cutting-edge technologies to optimise power distribution, enhance grid reliability, and facilitate the integration of renewable energy sources.

“Huawei’s Intelligent Distribution Solution enables power enterprises to shift from single-point digitalisation of power distribution rooms to architecture-supported, evolvable, open, and systematic intelligence. With an open digital ecosystem, we can stimulate grassroots creativity internally and make industry and cross-industry capabilities available to customers externally,” said David Sun, Vice President of Huawei and CEO of Huawei’s Electric Power Digitalisation BU.

The IDS architecture is built on a unique “cloud-pipe-edge-pipe-device” framework, which includes an on-premise private cloud as the digital foundation, both wired and wireless solutions for the backhaul network, an all-in-one edge computing unit (ECU) for lean management, and next-generation high-speed power line carrier communication (HPLC) on the low-voltage side. This comprehensive approach enables real-time measurable observations that empower utility providers to optimise their operations, reduce costs, and improve customer satisfaction by identifying and repairing faults before power outages occur.

“The solution delivers comprehensive and accurate power distribution network sensing, lean and refined management, timely and proactive customer service, as well as simpler and more efficient work for our employees,” said Zhang Genzhou, CIO of State Grid Shaanxi.

The solution has also delivered promising initial test results in Asia, Africa and the Middle East, demonstrating its potential to revolutionise power distribution on a global scale.

At the Huawei World Energy Congress booth, attendees learned more about the Intelligent Distribution Solution and how Huawei’s experience assisting power companies transform their operations can help drive further success for global customers.
