Rural Electrification Project for Expansion of Power Supply
Preface
The study of Korea’s economic and social transformation offers a unique opportunity to better understand the factors that drive development. Within one generation, Korea had transformed itself from a poor agrarian society to a modern industrial nation, a feat never seen before. What makes Korea’s experience so unique is that its rapid economic development was relatively broad-based, meaning that the fruits of Korea’s rapid growth were shared by many. The challenge of course is unlocking the secrets behind Korea’s rapid and broad-based development, which can offer invaluable insights and lessons and knowledge that can be shared wit

Abstract

In the past, Korea adopted high voltage of 3.3kV-△ and low voltage of 100V single phase two-wire mode for distribution. The Korean War in 1950 made these facilities absolutely obsolete. When restored after the war, electricity was tremendously in short supply, not to mention that equipment and materials were very difficult to acquire. By 1961, the production of electricity was far from meeting the demand, and power supply was severely restricted, according to priority by service areas and distribution lines. At the time, Korea’s facilities were significantly worn-out, and the power supply (frequency and duration of blackout) was quite unreliable.
However, when electricity was somewhat stabilized in 1965, the power supply for isolated rural communities became Korea’s new agenda. On April 23, 1965, the Ministry of Commerce announced its rural electrification project scheme, and it was implemented with the help of loans totaling 300 million won-100 million won from the government, and 200 million won from the Industrial Bank.
