Intelligent power solution shines a light on the future of scientific research

  • China's first High Energy Photon Source (HEPS) uses ABB Ability™ Monitoring and Control ZEE600 to optimize safety, power availability and energy efficiency.
  • The power distribution system will help users in load management and energy efficiency on the demand side, greatly reducing the people hours required for daily operation and maintenance.

In 2021, ABB was awarded a bid by The Institute of High Energy Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences to provide a complete power distribution solution to maintain safe and reliable energy supply for the High Energy Photon Source (HEPS) project in Beijing.

As one of the key projects listed in the 13th Five-year Plan for national major scientific and technological infrastructure construction, HEPS is an important platform for original and innovative research in the fields of basic science and engineering research.

The ABB solution includes 138 panels of UniGear ZS1 medium-voltage switchgear, 318 panels of MNS3.0 low-voltage switchgear and ABB Ability™ Monitoring and Control ZEE600. This platform will provide comprehensive power monitoring, control and data management for 11 distribution rooms in the facility, optimizing the reliability of the power supply and the distribution system. As HEPS will operate to provide technical support for researchers, the power distribution system will also meet strict safety requirements. It will also help users in load management and energy efficiency on the demand side, greatly reducing the people hours required for daily operation and maintenance.

Set to be one of the core facilities in Huairou Science City, HEPS is scheduled for completion by the end of 2025. ABB has delivered all the medium and low-voltage switchgear and finalized the technical scheme for the ZEE600 platform. Commissioning of the switchgear and ZEE600 has started in the field and ABB will complete the commissioning of the power distribution facilities in December 2023.

James Zhao, senior vice president of ABB China, said: “As a global tech innovator, ABB is proud to provide intelligent power management technology for China's cutting-edge large scientific installations. We will integrate our digital and low-carbon technologies into the products and solutions, providing strong, safe and reliable distribution infrastructure to support China as it explores cutting-edge of scientific research.”8
