- Aug 31, 2020-

Gandian Electric learned that, yesterday, there was news from the International Big Power Grid Conference held in Paris that the second in the world and the lightning research center currently receiving the most international support-the International Lightning Science Suzhou Research Center was officially established. It is reported that the research center is authorized by the three major international lightning protection organizations, certified by the international large grid organization, and established by the State Grid Jiangsu Electric Power Co., Ltd.

It is understood that the International Large Power Grid Organization was established in 1921 and is the world's leading power system organization. The conference is held in Paris, France every double-digit year. At this meeting, the chairman of the three major international lightning protection organizations attended and authorized the establishment of the International Lightning Science Suzhou Research Center. Previously, there was only one International Lightning Research Center in the world, namely the International Lightning Research Center in Florida, USA.

According to statistics, global lightning activity has increased by more than 12% in the past 10 years, and is expected to increase by 50% this century. Dynamic lightning protection is a future trend recognized by the international lightning protection community. The Suzhou Research Center will focus on emerging areas such as dynamic lightning protection and artificial intelligence lightning protection, and will carry out cloud cooperation in an online mode during the global epidemic.

Dynamic lightning protection is an advantageous research field of State Grid Jiangsu Electric Power and State Grid Suzhou Power Supply Company, which has accumulated a certain degree of influence and recognition in the world. In March 2018, Suzhou Power Supply Company submitted an application to the International Lightning Protection Scientific Committee to establish an international cooperative research organization for dynamic lightning protection led by China. In August 2018, a number of representatives from the International Scientific Committee on Lightning Protection and the International Large Power Grid Organization came to Suzhou for a comprehensive investigation. In October 2019, the world's first dynamic lightning protection technical standard formulated by Suzhou Power Supply Company on behalf of my country was certified by the International Big Grid Organization, and began to lead more than 20 countries to carry out technical standard work.

According to Tong Chong, vice chairman of the Scientific Committee of the International Large Power Grid Conference and senior engineer of Suzhou Power Supply Company, the International Lightning Science Suzhou Research Center currently has 32 units from 15 countries participating in the cooperation. In the future, the research center will be committed to building an international exchange and cooperation platform, leading the formulation of a series of international standards, while focusing on the application of the latest research results in all walks of life, and promoting them in many fields at home and abroad, for the benefit of the entire industry and all mankind Provide technical support for the business.
