DC power transmission talents passing down advanced technologies



Pakistan’s first DC power transmission talent is passing down most advanced technologies.

At Matiari Converter Station, the starting point of Pakistan’s power transmission artery, the 886-km Matiari to Lahore ±660kV HVDC Transmission Line, Mir Arslan Ali is training junior engineers.

As one of the founding employees of the project Pakistan’s first DC power transmission talents, Mir Arslan Ali, Assistant Duty Officer of the Control and Protection Department, is pleased to see that the state-of-the-art technology is being passed on among local technicians.

From the completion of the project in 2020, the number of trained DC power transmission engineers has nearly doubled, growing from 16 to nearly 30.

On the site of the first HVDC transmission project in Pakistan, the engineers who are bound to become the backbone of Pakistan’s power transmission sector are learning different fault situations and the various solutions for the most complex conditions.—INP
