Nava Raipur has established an Integrated Command and Control Centre (ICCC) and is working across several smart city tracks including smart governance, utility management, city surveillance and connectivity, Intelligent Traffic Management System, and Integrated Building Management System.
Nava Raipur smart city project encapsulates utility management which includes Water SCADA, Electric SCADA and streetlight. This helps Nava Raipur to provide 24*7 uninterrupted supply and early restoration of the services in case of an outage event remotely and centrally. Unique proposition of the project is that all these services are integrated centrally in the state-of-the-art ICCC where the entire city’s view is available with all infrastructure and assets mapped on GIS platform. Operators can monitor the city assets over GIS, remotely control the devices and trigger the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for events encountered during proactive monitoring, operations and maintenance.
Use Case 1: Monitoring of Water Quality parameters (pH, Turbidity and Chlorine level) of the water supplied to citizens at ICCC
Raw water sourced from Mahanadi River is treated at the 52 MLD Water Treatment Plant (WTP) located at Pacheda Village. Standards that are required for the safe drinking water are achieved and maintained via Water SCADA integrated smart water quality sensors at inlet and outlet of the WTP. The value of these water quality sensors is monitored at ICCC and necessary steps are taken in case if any deviation from the threshold values is noticed.
Turbidity: 1 NTU
Residual Chlorine: 2 ppm
pH: 7 .0 to 8.5
Use Case 2: Monitoring of occurrence of electrical fault/trip at ICCC through Circuit Breaker Trip alarm
33/11 KV substation ring main unit are fed through the redundant 33KV lines from Kohera, Nava Raipur. Distribution transformers with Ring Main units supply power to various sectors and finally to households. Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) through Electrical SCADA provide information of various parameters like voltage, current etc. of substations which help in maintaining the electrical distribution throughout the city. At ICCC, key parameters like voltage and health of circuit breakers is managed.
Step 3: An SOP/workflow is triggered so that the operator can take the necessary steps such as check the circuit breaker state, instruct the field operator to take necessary action etc.
Following benefits are achieved through management of utility systems from ICCC:
Thus, through monitoring of key parameters at ICCC, good quality of water and uninterrupted supply of electricity is assured to the citizens of Nava Raipur. With advance planning and analytics features also being implemented in the next phase, these connected utility systems will give NRANVP insights for its utility planning making the city more resilient.
