Abstract

In South Korea, power transmission voltages are 345kV on major networks and 154kV or 66kV in local systems. Most 66kV lines are now either being removed or replaced by higher voltage lines. As of 1999, the total length of transmission lines was 25,337 Circuit-km (C-km) and the total capacity of substation facilities was expanded to 120,257MVA. 765kV facilities are now being constructed, to be operated beginning in 2002, to transmit electricity stably between large power generation plants and customer areas due to the rapid increase in power demand in metropolitan areas. The power system on Jeju island is now connected to the mainland via a 100kmlong submarine transmission system of HVDC (High Voltage Direct Current) cables. Power transmission networks and substations are monitored and controlled by SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) systems. (The rest omitted)
