As Approved by the Authority for Electricity Regulation
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

Preface
This Transmission Capability Statement is provided by the Oman Electricity Transmission
Company according to Transmission and Dispatch Licence Condition number 27 and the Grid
Code (Planning Code). The Statement describes in detail the MIS and Dhofar transmission systems
capability over the coming five years 2017-2021. The Statement provides up-to-date transmission
system data in order to identify those parts of the system, which offer the opportunity for future
development of existing and potential users of the system.
In this Capability Statement, the results of load flow and short circuit analysis are presented based
on the planned system expansion reinforcement to meet the generation plan provided by Oman
Power and Water Procurement Company and the demand forecast provided by the Distribution
Companies (MEDC, MJEC, MZEC and DPC). The OETC grid model has been updated to include
new projects schedule, demand foecast, generation data and transmission system data. Total of 68
transmission projects at MIS and Dhofar are planned over the five years period. Most of projects
are designed to increase the transmission system capacity so that it can meet future growth in
demand and satisfy the security criteria.
The existing and planned development in the generation and transmission system is described,
including the compeletion of 400kV transmission network to connect the 2000MW Sur power
plant in 2017. This is in addition to the introduction of three new power plants at Ibri in 2018 with
capacity of 1508MW, at Sohar in 2019 with capacity of 1708MW and at Misfah in 2021 with
capacity of 1000MW. In addition, Salalah 2 IPP Power Plant is expected to be in service in 2018
and it will be connected to Dhofar transmission system. Also, the first 50 MW Wind Farm project
in the Sultanate of Oman will be connected to Dhofar transmission system in 2019.
It is one of OETC’s strategic planning concepts to introduce the 400kV system as a backbone to
allow the power evacuation from the centralized power plants. Major developments in the MIS
transmission system include the installation and operation of new 400kV transmission lines with
associated new 400/220kV and 400/132kV grid stations. In addition, the developments include the
installation of 220kV and 132kV transmission lines with associated new 220/132kV and 132/33kV
grid stations at MIS and Dhofar systems. The OETC strategy to operate the 400kV as backbone,
220kV as transmission and 132kV as subtransmission systems.
OETC has made an effort in reveiwing and updating the Transmission Secuirty Standard to cover
the recent development in generation, 400kV Transmission System and Renewable Energy. The
Authority for Electricity Regulation has granted the approval of the second edition of the
Transmission Secuirty Standard in July 2016.

1. Executive Summary

This Capability Statement presents the Oman Electricity Transmission Company’s development plans for the
400kV, 220kV and 132kV transmission systems for the years 2017 to 2021. Dhofar system has been transferred to
the Oman Electricity Transmission Company (OETC) on 1st January 2014. This document describes the
development plans for both MITS and Dhofar Transmission Systems.

The Statement includes data for the generators, loads, overhead lines, cables, transformers, reactive power
compensators and capacitor banks used in the development of transmission system models. In addition, the
Statement includes the demand and generation forecast. The power system studies undertaken by OETC’s
DIgSILENT PowerFactory software, version 15.2, in preparation of this Capability Statement. The Statement also
includes the results of power system analysis of the transmission system that defines system performance when
operating under the extreme peak (summer season) and off peak (winter season) in each of the five years. From this
analysis an assessment has been made of the opportunities for the connection of new generation, new demand and
reinforcement on the system.

Table 1 lists the schedule for committed and planned system development projects on the 400kV, 220kV and 132kV
transmission systems, although it should be noted that not all of the projects listed have full authorisation at this
time. The 400kV system development in MITS, includes the installation of two 400/220kV interconnection grid
stations, four 400/220/132/33kV grid stations, one 400/220/132kV and two 400/132kV grid stations. In addition,
the number of 220kV grid stations in MITS will increase from sixteen in peak of 2017 to nineteen in peak of 2021.
After adding Barka-3 PS grid station in peak of 2018, there will be two 220/33kV grid stations. The total number
of both MITS and Dhofar transmission system of 132/33kV grid stations will also increase from fifty-four in peak
of 2017 to seventy-one by peak of 2021.

It is one of OETC’s strategic planning concepts to introduce the 400kV system as a backbone to allow the power
evacuation from the centralized power plants. Furthermore, OETC installed 220kV double circuit lines around
northern Oman to supply and support the 132kV system. In 2010, the 220kV connection between the Sohar
Interconnector Station (SIS) and Mahadha (Al-Wasit) was completed to support linking Oman (OETC) with the
GCCIA Grid through UAE (Transco Abu Dhabi) network. In 2013, the 220kV transmission system was extended
from Misfah in the Muscat area to Jahloot. In addition, a 220kV line between Mahadha and Ibri was energize in
2012 to support the voltage, meet the expected growth in the area and meet the Transmission System Security
Standard.

Moreover, OETC has introduced the first 400kV system that includes 400kV connection between Jahloot grid
station and Sur power station and line between Sur power station and New Izki grid stations in 2016. Other 400kV
transmission lines will be installed between New Izki-Misfah, Ibri-New Izki, Sohar-3 IPP-Sohar Free Zone, Sohar
Free Zone-SIS, Sohar Free Zone-Mahadha (will be operated as 220kV) and Misfah-Rusail Industrial grid stations.
Furthermore, there will be a LILO connection from the Sur- New Izki 400kV line at Qabel grid station through a
400/132kV grid station. Accordingly, a total of nine 400kV grid stations will be commissioned at Sur, Jahloot, New
Izki, Misfah, Ibri, Sohar Free Zone, SIS, Qabel and Rusail Industrial. The total installed capacity of 400kV grid
substations will be around 15,250 MVA in 2021.
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

In accordance with Condition 27 of OETC’s Transmission and Dispatch Licence, the power flow studies presented
in this Capability Statement are based on updated demand forecast data provided by Distribution companies
(DISCOs) and the updated generation forecast by Oman Power and Water Procurement Company (OPWP).

To be able to perform the studies and produce the results presented in this statement, the deadline to receive data
from various parties (OPWP, DISCOs) is as per the Grid Code. Any information received after the deadline will be
included in the next Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2018-2022).

The forecast average annual growth in system demand of about 6.34% for MITS and 9.0% for Dhofar system is
over the period 2017-2021 drives many of the planned grid station reinforcements. To meet security of supply
requirements and provide load relief to the loaded grid stations, it will be necessary to transfer excess load to the
new or existing grid stations. Furthermore, OPWP has submitted a connection application dated 16 February 2014
for connection of new power plants to the MITS at Ibri and Sohar. The recent updated generation data is shown a
total of 1508MW at Ibri and 1708MW at Sohar Power Plants. Also, there is another connection application
submitted by OPWP dated 31 August 2014 for connection of 400MW (Salalah-2 IPP) at Dhofar transmission
network. The recent updated generation data is shown a total of 437.8MW from new Salalah-2 IPP in 2018. In
addition, OPWP has submitted a connection application dated 19 October 2016 for a new generation of 1000MW
at Misfah. Moreover, Rural Area Electricity Company (RAEC) has submitted a connection application dated 25
December 2014 for the first Wind Farm Plant to Dhofar Transmission System with 50MW installed capacity and it
will be ready by 2019.

As the demand grows, there is a greater need to extend the transmission systems and to establish new 400kV
network as a backbone to transmit the bulk power from power plants. This will reduce the overload at the 220kV
and 132kV networks and subsequently improve voltages and reduce power losses. Consequently, the 220kV will
be operated as a transmission system and the 132kV as sub-transmission system.

From Table 1, a total of 67 transmission projects are planned over the five years period. Most of projects are
designed to increase the transmission system capacity, so that it can meet future demand growth and satisfy the
Transmission Security Standard. This is a major programme of capital investment that will be spread across the
whole network to improve transmission system performance in northern and southern of Oman. Power system
studies presented in this statement confirmed that the planned investment in 400kV, 220kV and 132kV grid stations
and transmission circuits will provide substantial spare capacity on the transmission systems.

The major technical issue identified in the studies was with high short-circuit fault levels on the 132kV busbars at
three grid stations in the Muscat area. The grid stations at Ghubrah, Rusail, Bousher and Madinat Sultan Qaboos
(MSQ) were all shown in earlier studies to have high 132kV fault levels. During 2017-2018, OETC has taken
appropriate remedial action to address this problem in the short–term by splitting the 132kV busbars and opening
some of 132kV lines at Muscat region without impacting the security requirements. From 2019, there will be no
longer need for busbars splitting due to the network development and reconfiguration works. Therefore, all busbars
will be returned to normal operation. However, some 132kV lines will still be needed to be kept open to reduce the
infeed short circuit contribution and this is a part of OETC long term strategy to operate the 400kV and 220kV as
the main transmission voltages.

Load flow studies have confirmed that the voltage levels across the transmission system will be maintain within the
limits. The 400kV voltage will be maintained in the system within the allowable limit ±5%. In addition, as defined
in the Grid Code the 220kV and 132kV will be maintained within ±10% and the 33kV will be maintained within
±6%. Also, the load flow has presented the issue of overvoltage during the winter peak time due to the 400kV lines.

Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

Accordingly, OETC is initiating a project to install a shunt reactors at the 400kV lines to overcome the overvoltage
issue during winter peak time.

The Statement has reviewed the opportunities for the connection of new generation and new demand and identified
those grid stations with substantial spare capacity where it should be possible to connect new demand to the system.

Section 2 of the Statement provides an introduction to the document, identifying the main related documentation
and the key changes that have taken place on the transmission system since the previous issue of the Statement.

Section 3 identifies the technical requirements of the Grid Code and the Transmission Licence with specific
attention to system voltage, frequency and security of supply.

Section 4 describes the main engineering standards used by OETC in its planning and design of the transmission
system.

Section 5 describes the existing transmission system and summarises the planned developments in each year over
the period 2017 to 2021.

Section 6 identifies the existing and planned developments in generation and describes the interconnections both
inside Oman and internationally, i.e. PDO and the GCCIA respectively.

Section 7 presents the comparison of demand forecast with the generation capacity available.

Section 8 discusses transmission systems performance and presents the results of load flow and short-circuits
studies that show the performance of the transmission system at both peak and off peak demand in each year from
2017 to 2021.

Section 9 identifies the development opportunities for the connection of new demand and new generating plants to
the transmission systems.

Section 10 presents the areas of the network that will be operating above the firm capacity and not compliance with
Transmission Security Standard in 2017.

3. Technical requirements for compliance with the Grid Code and Licence

The Grid Code is designed to permit the development, maintenance and operation of an efficient,
economical and coordinated electricity transmission system. It facilitates competition in the generation and
supply of electricity and promotes the security and efficiency of the system as a whole.

The Transmission Security Standard required the capacity of the Transmission System to transmit
electricity and shall not be reduced in the event that a single electric line, transformer or breaker and/or
associated plant is not in service. The operating voltage of the Transmission System shall be maintain within
the limit specified in the Grid Code and TSS.

In order to comply with Condition 26 of the Electricity Transmission and Dispatch Licence the transmission
system must be planned, designed and operated to provide a secure, efficient and economic supply of
electricity that is of an acceptable quality to its users.

OETC shall ensure that, subject as provided in the Grid Code, the Electricity Transmission System complies
with the following technical, design and operational criteria in relation to the part of the Electricity
Transmission System at the Connection Site with a User (unless otherwise specified in the Grid Code).
Although in relation to operational criteria, OETC may not be able to comply with this obligation to the
extent that others parties are not comply with the Grid Code. Each User shall ensure complies with the
criteria set out in the Grid Code (CC.6.1.5).

Whilst Condition 26 specifically sets out the Security of Supply requirements, the most important
characteristics that determine the quality of supply are frequency and voltage. The requirements for
maintaining transmission system frequency and voltage within specified operating limits are set out in the
Grid Code, and most clearly defined under conditions CC.6.1.1 and CC.6.1.2 respectively of the Connection
Conditions Code.

Grid Code establishes the historic frequency and voltage performance of the transmission system,
specifically in relation to operation at abnormal voltages and frequencies. Consider how future generation
and demand changes may affect transmission system performance in these areas. It establishes the relevant
generation design criteria and standards, and the impacts of operation at abnormal voltages and frequencies
on generating units. It considers whether the current Grid Code frequency and voltage requirements are
appropriate, taking into account of system security requirements, the capabilities of generating units, the
industry costs and benefits of implementing them.

3.1 System Frequency
In accordance with condition CC.6.1.1 of the Connection Conditions Code, OETC is required to maintain
System Frequency within the following limits:

a) During normal operating conditions, the nominal system frequency of the transmission
system shall be 50.00Hz and will be controlled normally between 49.95Hz and 50.05Hz.

Page | 24
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

b) During exceptional steady state conditions, frequency deviations will not exceed 49.90Hz
to 50.10Hz unless disturbed circumstances prevail.

c) Under disturbed conditions, system frequency could rise transiently to 51.50 Hz or fall to
47.5 Hz, but not exceed these limits.

As CC.6.1.1 points out, the frequency of the total system is responsive to changes in the balance between
the active power demand and total available generation capacity. OETC must therefore ensure that
sufficient generation capacity and demand is available and connected to the system at all times to respond
automatically to active power imbalances and correct any frequency change.

3.2 System Voltage
In accordance with condition CC.6.1.2 of the Connection Conditions Code, OETC is required to control
system voltage within the following limits:

a) The voltage on the 220kV and 132kV parts of the Transmission System at each site with
a user connection will remain within the limits of ±10% of the nominal voltage level.

b) The voltage on the 66kV, 33kV and 11 kV sides of transmission transformers at
Connection Sites with Users will normally remain within the limits of ±6% of the nominal
value unless abnormal conditions prevail.

As there is no specifications for voltage limits for the 400kV system in the Grid Code, OETC adopted a
value of ±5% limits for this voltage level to be in accordance with international standards and design
specification. The internal OETC standard specifications and the Transmission Security Standard include
the limit mention for the 400kV system.

During some system disturbances, such as where short circuits occur, the voltage could collapse transiently
to zero at the point of fault until the fault is cleared. Voltage regulation requires both active and reactive
power flows across the transmission system to be carefully controlled. The physical characteristics of the
plant on the transmission system also give rise to the generation and absorption of reactive power. Reactive
power flows across the transmission system can give rise to substantial voltage differences and it is therefore
necessary to maintain reactive power balances between sources of capacity and demand on a “zone” basis.

Unlike frequency, which is consistent across an interconnected transmission system, voltages at different
points on an interconnected system are determined by the local sources of demand and capacity, by the
prevailing network configuration and by the reactive power flows across the network. The management of
voltage requires control of reactive power can be provided by generation units, transformer tap-changers,
capacitor banks at 33kV or below, shunt reactors or by means of static VAR compensator (SVC).

3.3 Security of Supply
In accordance with Condition 26 of OETC Transmission and Dispatch Licence, the capacity of the
Transmission System to transmit electricity shall not be reduced in the event that a single electric line,
cable, transformer, circuit breaker and/or associated plant is not in service. During a period of which such
equipment is out of service, the operating voltage of the Transmission System may reduce to any level
specified for such purposes in the Grid Code. In effect, the transmission system should be planned and
operated to meet the Transmission Security Standard requirements. Table 2 from the Transmission Security
Standard document shows Demand connections, Demand Class definition and supply restoration times.
The table illustrates and explains boundaries of each demand classes and the security level requirements
during the outage for restricted and a maintenance periods.

4. OETC System Design and Planning Standards

In addition to the technical requirements of the Transmission Licence and the Grid Code, the principal
electrical standards used by OETC in its planning and design of the 400kV, 220kV and 132kV transmission
systems are:

4.1 Oman Electrical Standard OES 11
The standard covers the topic “General Specifications for Electrical Materials and Equipment” and defines
the worst case conditions for system design purposes by the following parameters:

a) Maximum ambient temperature (50˚C)
b) Maximum surface temperature for metal surfaces (80˚C)
c) altitude (between sea level and 300 metres above sea level)
d) Maximum wind velocity (125km per hour)
e) Average annual rainfall (117mm)
f) Maximum relative humidity (100%)
The standard also defines the design parameters for the 132kV systems in terms of highest voltage, design
fault level and the requirement that the system be solidly earthed. Currently it does not specify
corresponding figures for the 400kV and 220kV systems.

4.2 Oman Electrical Standard OES 25A and 25B
These standards define the requirements for aluminium conductor steel reinforced and aluminium alloy
conductor overhead lines and aluminium alloy stranded conductor overhead lines.

4.3 Oman Electrical Standard OES 27
Volume 1 of the standard covers the design requirements for a 132/33kV, 2x125 MVA substation with
132kV gas insulated switchgear, including the 33kV switchgear. Volume 2 covers similar requirements
for the 132/33kV, 2x63 MVA substation with 132kV outdoor SF6 switchgear.

4.4 Oman Electrical Standard OES 32
The standard covers the design requirements for 132kV double circuit overhead transmission lines with
400mm2 All Aluminium Alloy Twin-Yew Conductors (AAAC) on lattice steel towers that are deployed
across much of the 132kV transmission system.

4.5 Other Standards
In cases where an Oman Electrical Standard is not applicable it is usual OETC practice to adopt the
appropriate related standards. This applies to the design of the 400kV, 220kV and 132kV transmission
systems. The internal OETC standard specifications include all others design requirements which are
currently not exist in above Oman Electrical Standard.

5. OETC Transmission System

5.1 Existing Transmission System
The Oman Electricity Transmission Company is authorized to undertake all regulated activities of
electricity transmission and dispatch in northern Oman and Dhofar at voltages of 132kV and above. The
existing transmission system in northern Oman has two operating voltages, i.e. 220kV and 132kV while in
Dhofar has only one operating voltage, i.e. 132kV. In 2016, the transmission system in northern Oman will
also have 400kV operating voltage .The existing transmission system extends across the whole of northern
Oman and interconnects bulk consumers and generators of electricity located in the Governorates of
Muscat, Batinah South, Batinah North, Dhahirah, Buraimi, Dakhliyah, Sharquiya South and Sharqiya
North.

The transmission system was first established under the Ministry of Electricity and Water (MEW) in 1983
and underwent rapid expansion during the 1990s. Consequently much of it has less than 15 year service
experience. After the electrical sector was unbundled, the OETC took over the operation of the MITS on
1st of May 2005 and Dhofar Transmission System on 1st of January 2014.

The present OETC transmission system at MITS consists of:

 884 circuit-km of 400kV overhead transmission lines

 1601.47 circuit-km of 220kV overhead transmission lines

 3394.89 circuit-km of 132kV overhead transmission lines

 67 circuit-km of 220kV underground cables

 153.83 circuit-km of 132kV underground cables

 8250 MVA of 400/220kV transformer capacity

 13630 MVA of 220/132kV transformer capacity

 320 MVA of 220/33kV transformer capacity

 16059 MVA of 132/33kV transformer capacity

 150 MVA of 132/11 kV transformer capacity

 Two 400/220kV interconnection grid stations

 Two 400/220/132/33kV grid stations

 Four 220kV interconnection grid stations

 Three 220/132kV grid stations

Page | 28
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

 One 220/33kV grid station

 Eight 220/132/33kV grid stations

 Forty Six 132/33kV grid stations

 Two 132/11 kV grid stations

In addition, the present OETC transmission system at Dhofar consists of:

 503.99 circuit-km of 132kV overhead transmission lines

 33.64 circuit-km of 132kV cables

 2062 MVA of 132/33kV transformer capacity

 Eight 132/33kV grid stations

The transmission system is interconnected with the transmission system of GCCIA Grid through UAE
(Transco Abu Dhabi) at Mahadha (Al Wasit) grid station through 220kV. The interconnection links the
electricity supply systems of Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, UAE and Oman. This should increase
the security of supply and benefits to the member countries in the form of cost savings from the sharing of
reserve capacity and energy resources. The 220kV interconnector between OETC and Transco Abu Dhabi
has been energised and brought into service since 14th of November 2011. Oman recently has signed
officially the agreement with the GCCIA in November 2014 and became a member of GCC grid.

The OETC transmission system is also interconnected with the Sohar Aluminium system at 220kV via a
double circuit cable that runs between SPS on the OETC system and Sohar Aluminium 220kV busbar.
Under normal conditions the power transfer across the interconnection is forecasted to be negligible, but in
the event of an emergency on either network the interconnection can facilitate a power transfer of up to
300 MW to address the shortfall.

The OETC transmission system is also interconnected with the PDO transmission network at 132kV via a
single circuit overhead line that runs between Nizwa on the OETC system and Nahada on the PDO system.
Under normal conditions the power transfer across the interconnection is forecasted to be negligible, but in
the event of an emergency on either network the interconnection can facilitate a power transfer to address
the shortfall. In addition, OETC transmission system at Dhofar is also interconnected with the PDO
transmission network at 132kV via a single circuit overhead line that runs between Thumarit at OETC
system and Harweel at PDO system.

The transmission system at MIS area is supplied with electricity generated from eleven gas-based power
stations located at Ghubrah, Rusail, Wadi Jizzi, Manah, Al Kamil, Barka (ACWA), Barka SMN, Barka III,
Sohar I, Sohar II and Sur IPP. In addition, the transmission system may be supplied from direct customers,

Page | 29
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

such as Sohar Aluminium and PDO. The transmission system at Dhofar area is supplied with electricity
generated from two gas-based power stations located at NPS and Salalah-1 IWPP.

Four Distribution and Supply Licence holders, i.e. Muscat Electricity Distribution Company (MEDC),
Mazoon Electricity Company (MZEC), Majan Electricity Company (MJEC) and Dhofar Power Company
(DPC), take the bulk of the power transmitted through the main grid stations to supply the Distribution
system.

In addition to the four distribution companies, twelve large private customers are directly connected to the
transmission system. The existing private customers are:

 220kV Connections

i. Sohar Aluminium Smelter (connected to SPS)

ii. Jindal Shadeed Steel (connected to SIA)

 132kV Connections

i. Sohar Steel (connected to SIA)

ii. PDO (connected to Nizwa and Thumrait)

iii. Aromatics (connected to SIA)

iv. OMIFCO (connected to Sur)

v. VALE (connected to SIA)

vi. The New Muscat International Airport (connected to Airport Heights)

vii. Muscat Steel (connected to Rusail Industrial)

viii. Modern Steel (connected to Rusail Industrial)

ix. R.O Ghoubrah (connected to Ghoubrah)

x. Oman Alum. Rolling (connected to Liwa)

xi. Salalah International Airport (connected to Ittin)

The following new customers will be directly connected during the period covered by the Statement:

 Oman International Petrochemical Industrials Company will be connected to 132kV SIP-
A grid station in 2018.

 Orpic Plastic Company will be connected to 220kV SPS-2 grid station in 2018.

Page | 30
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

 Moon Steel Company will be connected to 220kV Sohar Free Zone in 2019.

 Salalah Methanol Company will be connected to 132kV Salalah Free Zone in 2019.

In 2016, MIS gross peak demand was 6105 MW which occurred at 15:30 hours on 12th June, an increase
of 6.28% on the 2015 peak demand. During 2016, the electric energy delivered to the MIS from connected
generating plants & other generators was 29,548.940 GWh whilst that exported from the MIS to the
Distribution Companies was 29,074.490 GWh resulting in transmission system energy losses of 474.450
GWh, which equates to a transmission system energy loss of 1.6 %.

In 2016, Dhofar system gross peak demand was 523 MW which occurred at 15:09 hours on 26th May, an
increase of 5.62% on the 2015 peak demand. During 2016, the electric energy delivered to the Dhofar
transmission system from connected generating plants & other generators was 3,057.166 GWh whilst that
exported from Dhofar system to Dhofar Power Company was 3,017.481 GWh resulting in transmission
system energy losses of 39.685 GWh, which equates to a transmission system energy loss of 1.3%.

5.2 Future System Development Projects
The power system studies presented later in this Capability Statement used to define the constraints and
opportunities that exist on the transmission system over the next five years. The power system studies have
been performed on the basis that the committed and planned development projects detailed in Appendix A
and summarised below will proceed as planned and be completed to the current schedule.

5.2.1 Projects completed to meet the 2017 peak demand
A geo-schematic diagram of the existing transmission system in 2017 is shown in Figure 1. In section 2.2
of this Statement it was noted that a number of projects had been completed since the published Capability
Statement 2016–2020, so that they were available to meet the peak demand of summer 2017. These projects
will provide load relief to some of the heavily loaded grid stations and transmission circuits in addition to
improving the voltage profile. The major planned projects to meet the 2017 peak are the new 220/132/33kV
grid station at Sohar Free Zone to supply the industrial loads in the area and a new 400/220/132/33kV grid
station at New Izki to support the voltage and power flow to Al Dakhliyah system from Sur Power Plant.
Furthermore, upgrading of Misfah from 220kV to 400kV to evacuate the generated power from Sur power
plant. In addition, number of projects are commissioned to meet the summer peak of 2017 which include
new 132/33kV grid station at Madinat Barka, Ibra, JBB Hassan, Dreez, S’aadah and Jebreen. Furthermore,
reinforcements projects such as adding third and fourth 132/33kV 125 MVA transformers at Liwa, Salalah
Free Zone and Muladah and replacing Mahadha 132kV AIS bays by new 132kV GIS bays are planned to
meet the Transmission Security Standard and the growth demand. Other projects that required to meet the
security standard in 2017 are the 33kV GIS linking of Bousher & Mawalleh South grid stations and the
linking project of Al Falaj, Muttrah and Wadi Kabir grid stations by one circuit of 132kV and adding fourth
transformer at Wadi Al Kabir grid station. Moreover, adding the 132kV GIS at Salalah Free Zone grid

Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

station to connect the new Salalah-2 IPP power plant. Also, the construction of new 2x50 MVA 132/11kV
grid station at Daghmar to supply the new IWP at Quriyat.

5.2.2 Projects expected to be completed to meet the 2018 peak demand
Figure 2 shows in geo-schematic form the system development plan to meet the demand in 2018 peak
demand. The main investment to meet the 2018 peak in Muscat area is the new 400kV line of 100 km
between New Izki and Misfah is intended to evacuate the generated power from Sur power plant. The
projects designed to meet the 2018 system peak demand include the construction of new 132/33kV grid
stations at Uwaynat, Dil Abdusalam, Madinat Shinas, Suwaiq and Sinaw. Furthermore, upgrading of
Mawalleh North grid station from 3x50MVA (132/11kV) to 2x125MVA (132/33kV) transformers to
supply the area at Mawalleh. In addition, shifting 1x50 MVA transformer from Mawalleh North to Daghmar
132/11kV grid station to supply the new IWP at Quriyat. Furthermore, reinforcements at Madinate Barka
and Khadra are by adding the third and fourth 132/33kV transformers. Moreover, reinforcements at Barka-
3 PS grid station by adding 220/33kV 2x125 MVA transformers to supply the new Barka IWP. As a result
of reactive power compension study conducted by OETC, there is a need of shunt reactors to be installed
at the 400kV lines to control the voltage during the winter time where there the demand is low. Those
reactors are installed as follows; 2x40 MVAr at the “New Izki 400kV” end of the New Izki – Sur PS
400kV line, 2x30 MVAr at the “New Izki 400kV” end of the New Izki – Misfah 400kV line, 2x35 MVAr
at the “Sur PS” end of the Sur PS – Jahloot 400kV line. These reactors will support maintaining the voltage
within the allowable limit during the off peak time. The major investments to meet the 2018 peak are linked
to the connection of the new power plants at Ibri and Sohar. The main development projects are the new
400/220 kV grid station at Ibri and the 400kV line of 250km between Ibri and New Izki. In addition, the
220kV LILO to Ibri IPP from the line between Mahadha and Ibri grid stations. Also, adding four 400kV
circuits from Sohar III IPP to Sohar Free Zone, 400kV lines between Sohar Free Zone and SIS grid stations
and new 400kV line between Sohar Free Zone and Mahadha (will be operate at 220kV) grid stations to
evacuate power coming from New Sohar III IPP. Furthermore, upgrading projects are also required at
Mobella to 220kV to support Mobella demand and securing the area. In addition, upgrading Adam from
2x40MVA to 2x125 MVA to maintain the Transmission Security Standard requirements. Furthermore, to
meet the Transmission Security Standard at SIA grid station during the maintenance time, a new 220kV
circuit will be constructed with additional a 500MVA transformer. Moreover, a new 220kV GIS and fourth
125 MVA transformer will be installed at MSQ to cater the new demand and meet Transmission Security
Standard.

Bureimi Industrail, Sohar Free Zone and Airport Heights grid stations. In addition, upgrading Seeb from
2x63 MVA to 2x125 MVA transformers with 33kV GIS interlink. Furthermore, a new 220kV
Interconnection station will be added at Khabourah to meet the Transmission Security Standard
requirements. In addition, the development of the 400kV transmission systems includes upgrading of SIS
and Sohar Free Zone to 400kV with associate 132kV line between Sohar Free Zone to Shinas (Design as
400kV) and new Qabel 400kV by LILO Sur-New Izki 400kV OHL to the 400/132kV grid station at Qabel.
Also, Securing Bureimi demand group includes adding new 132kV line between Mahadha and Bureimi
grid stations. In addition, reactive power compensation (SVC) will be required to be installed at Muscat
area to maintain the voltage within the acceptable range during the disturbance.

5.2.4 Projects expected to be completed in time to meet the 2020 peak demand
Figure 4 shows in geo-schematic form the system arrangement to meet the 2020 peak demand. The new
projects planned to meet the summer peak demand in 2020 are at various stages of development. These
projects include new 132/33kV grid stations at Yanqul and Khoudh to cater the demand growth in these
areas. Furthermore, adding third and fourth 125MVA transformers to meet the Transmission Security
Standard and load growth will be at Ghubrah grid station.

5.2.5 Projects expected to be completed in time to meet the 2021 peak demand
Figure 5 shows in geo-schematic form the system arrangement to meet the 2021 peak demand. The new

There are a number of private industrial customers directly connected to the transmission system that either
operate or plan to operate their own on-site generation. The largest generating plant among these is Sohar
Aluminium, which may export up to 300 MW during the summer period and import the same during the
winter time. The interconnected system and the private customer generating plants can be made available
with the customer’s agreement to support the contracted generation under emergency conditions in order
to avoid power cuts in northern Oman. These generators are termed “non-contracted” generating plants.

6.5 Interconnections
6.5.1 Interconnection with the GCCIA Grid through UAE (Transco Abu Dhabi)

The 220kV transmission interconnection with the United Arab Emirates (Transco Abu Dhabi) was
completed in the first quarter of 2007. The interconnection connects Mahadha grid station in Oman
(Al Wasit) to Auha grid station in Al Ain in the UAE. In the longer term, the principal technical benefit to
be obtained from connecting Oman to the GCCIA Grid is in a reduced spinning reserve requirement, which
will be shared between the members of the GCCIA Grid. However, operation of the interconnection will
allow Oman to import/export power from the GCCIA Grid to meet any potential generation shortfall. Oman
has singed officially the agreement with the GCCIA in November 2014 and become a part of state members.

6.5.2 Interconnection with PDO

OETC transmission system is interconnected with the transmission system of the Petroleum Development
Oman (PDO) which provides electricity to its sites across the central region of Oman for the purpose of oil
exploration and development. The interconnection is made at 132kV between Nizwa grid station on the
OETC system and Nahda 132kV station on PDO 132kV network by a 67 km overhead line. The overhead
line is owned by PDO. Under normal conditions the power transfer between the two networks is allowed
to float around zero MW, with power transfers balanced out over a period.
In addition, Dhofar transmission system is interconnected with the transmission system of the Petroleum
Development Oman (PDO). The interconnection is made at 132kV between Thumrait grid station on the
Dhofar system and Harweel 132kV station on PDO 132kV network by 84.5 km overhead line. The
interconnection essentially allows OETC and PDO to supply limited power to each other in emergency
conditions on either system.

6.6 Economic Dispatch
The Load Dispatch Centre of OETC dispatches generation based on its availability as stated by the
Generator on a day-ahead basis, and its price as listed by the Oman Power and Water Procurement Company
(OPWP). Under circumstances where the system frequency is seen to stray outside the specified limits,
LDC will issue dispatch instructions to Generators based on Merit Order to rectify the situation.

6.7 Spinning Reserve
The Load Dispatch Centre strives to maintain a spinning reserve equal to the rating of the largest generating
unit connected to the transmission system. In case of combined cycle power plant, the spinning reserve
equals the largest gas turbine unit plus its share in the steam turbine unit.

7. Demand Forecast and Generation Availability

7.1 System Demand
Maximum demand usually occurs on the OETC transmission system on weekdays in the summer months
(May, June or July), during a period of particularly high temperature and humidity. The growth in air
conditioning equipment in domestic and commercial premises in Oman has ensured that peak demand
usually occurs during the early morning or afternoon. Figures 11 and 12 show the 24-hour demand profile
for the transmission system on the day of the 2016 system peak demand (i.e. 12/06/2016 MIS System and
26/05/2016 Dhofar System). The 2016 MIS system peak demand of 6105 MW was recorded at 15:30 hours
and 2016 Dhofar system peak demand of 523 MW was recorded at 15:09 hours by OETC Load Dispatch
Centre. The historic growth in system peak demand over the period (2003-2016) is shown in Table 7.

Minimum demand generally occurs on the transmission system during night-time in winter month
(December/January) when electricity consumption in all major load categories is reduced. In 2016, the
MIS system minimum demand was 1917 MW and this occurred on 01/01/2016 at 07:06 AM and 2016
Dhofar system minimum demand was 181 MW and this occurred on 06/02/2016 at 07:14 AM. The 2016
system minimum demand at MIS system was about 31.40 % and at Dhofar system was about 34.60 % of
2016 system peak demand. The 24-hour profile for the day of minimum demand is shown in Figures 13 &
14.

7.2 Demand Forecast
Under clause 3 of Condition 27 of OETC Transmission and Dispatch Licence it is stated that:

“The Licensee shall, when preparing the Capability Statement ….ensure that the forecasts of electricity
flows and loading on each part of the Transmission System are consistent with the prevailing electricity
demand forecasts prepared and used by the OPWP for the purposes of the Statement of future capacity
requirements required by Condition 5 of the OPWP licence”.

The OPWP demand forecast is based on data supplied to them by the four Distribution Companies (i.e.
Muscat EDC, Mazoon EC, Majan EC and Dhofar PC) which also includes demand forecasts for the major
customers that are, or will be, directly connected to OETC transmission system at either 220kV or 132kV
in their respective supply areas. In addition, Distribution Companies have provided demand forecast data
to OETC taking into account the individual load at each supply connection points. The Distribution
Companies forecast are provided in terms of:

a) The growth in major industrial loads

b) The growth in major tourism loads

c) The annual domestic growth

d) The growth in major commercial loads

The forecast supplied to OPWP relate to the total for each Distribution Company and do not indicate how
this load is allocated to the individual grid supply points. The forecast data provided to OPWP includes
major future connections and the cumulative increase in load over the seven-year period covered by the
OPWP Statement. OPWP has then reviewed this data and taken a view as to the probability that the
individual schemes will proceed and if so, the rate at which their load will develop. The outcome of this
review is presented as OPWP demand forecast in its Seven-Year Statement.

The OPWP demand forecast was therefore taken as the starting point for developing the demand forecast
presented in this OETC Capability Statement. The OETC forecast, however, is required to identify the
future demand at individual grid stations at the system peak for each year over the period 2017 to 2021,
since this information is required for the power flow studies.

Analysis of the demand forecast data used by OPWP in developing its Seven-Year Statement (2016-2022)
identified basic annual percentage rates of 8 % for the growth in peak demand in the Mazoon EC, Muscat
EDC and Majan EC supply areas and 9 % for the growth in peak demand in the DPC supply area. These
rates have been applied to the grid station demands in the respective supply areas as noted by the OETC
Load Dispatch Centre at the 2016 MIS system peak (i.e. 12/06/2016, 15:30 hour) and 2016 Dhofar system
peak (i.e.26/05/2016, 15:09 hour). The demand associated with major industrial and tourism projects as
assessed by OPWP (with diversity taken into account) was then superimposed on to the steady growth in
the basic demand to produce a basic forecast. Section 5 identified a number of new grid supply points that

Page | 60
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

are scheduled to come into service to meet the summer peak demands from 2016 onwards. These gird
stations will provide load relief to the more heavily loaded grid stations and in some cases supply new
loads.

The Distribution Companies’s plans for load transfers from existing grid stations that are heavily loaded to
new grid stations are one of the most important elements of the demand forecast. Table 8 summarises the
load transfers adopted in the studies based on consideration of what is required and what OETC has
considered viable. However, OETC acknowledges that this aspect of the forecast needs to be improved in
future and believes that it would be helpful if distribution companies were to give greater consideration to
feasible load transfers when planning their distribution networks, and to develop proposals for load transfers
in coordination with OETC. Also, the TSS requirement shall be considered at every grid supply point and
all new requirements shall be indicated clearly.

Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017 - 2021)

8. Transmission System Performance

8.1 Power Flow and Voltage Profiles

The transmission system data used in the power system studies to determine the system performance over
the period from 2017 to 2021 is presented in Appendix B of this document.

8.1.1 Power Flow and Voltage Profiles of MIS

The extreme cases of maximum (summer) and minimum (winter) system demand are used to define the
performance of OETC transmission system when it is most heavily stressed. From the studies of these
extreme conditions it is possible to identify where the system is strong and has capacity to spare and,
conversely, where it is weak and will need strengthening before new connections could be considered. The
peak demand case identifies where there is a risk of overloading, of operation above firm capacity, or of
system voltages falling below the voltage limits as defined in the Grid Code.

The system data described and presented in Appendix B has been used in a series of load flow studies to
establish the performance of OETC transmission system at peak demand in each year from 2017 to 2021
inclusive. The studies were undertaken on the basis that all circuits and plant will be available at system
peak in each of the five years and that the system will be developed in accordance with the plans described
in Section 5 of the Statement. The studies also assume that the demand will grow in accordance with the
demand forecast and that sufficient generation will be available from both Contracted and Non-Contracted
power producers to meet each annual system peak as indicated in OPWP 7 Year Statement.

Table 12 shows a summary of the power plants forecasted to be in service at peak load in each year of the
study from 2017 to 2021. Under peak load condition it is assumed that reactive power support will be
switched on, i.e. capacitor banks at 33kV grid stations are properly adjusted to provide required reactive
power and voltage support. In the studies, generator terminal voltage and generator-transformer taps are
normally set at their corresponding nominal values, however, when necessary the settings are adjusted to
control the voltage on the transmission system to be within the allowable limits.

A second series of load flow studies were undertaken with the transmission system supplying minimum
demand. The minimum demand case identifies where there is a risk of the busbar voltages rising above the
voltage limits defined in the Grid Code and where additional generation has to be operated to absorb excess
reactive power, where there are no shunt reactors connected to the system in peak 2017. However, in 2018
and 2019 several shunt reactors will be installed to absorb excessive amount of reactive power that been
generated by the lightly loaded 400kV lines. At the system minimum demand, the generation is reduced to
a level that provides the necessary margin of reserve capacity that is consistent with the operational practices
adopted by OETC to handle minimum load condition. Table 13 shows the power plants forecasted to be in
service at minimum load in each year of the study. Under minimum load condition, it is assumed that all
capacitor banks are switched out to avoid overvoltage due to excessive reactive power.

8.1.2 Power Flow and Voltage Profiles of Dhofar

The extreme cases of maximum and minimum system demand are used to define the performance of OETC
transmission system when it is most heavily stressed. From the studies of these extreme conditions it is
possible to identify where the system is strong and has capacity to spare and, conversely, where it is weak
and will need strengthening before new connections could be considered. The peak demand case identifies
where there is a risk of overloading, of operation above firm capacity, or of system voltages falling below
the voltage limits as defined in the Grid Code.

inclusive. The studies were undertaken on the basis that all circuits and plant will be available at system
peak in each of the five years and that the system will be developed in accordance with the plans described
in Section 5 of the Statement. The studies also assume that the demand will grow in accordance with the
demand forecast and that sufficient generation will be available from contracted power plants to meet each
annual system peak as indicated in OPWP 7 Year Statement.

Table 12 shows a summary of the power plants forecasted to be in service at peak load in each year of the
study from 2017 to 2021. Under peak load condition it is assumed that capacitive support will be switched

at their corresponding nominal values, however, when necessary the settings are adjusted to control the
voltage on the transmission system to be within the allowable limits.

A second series of load flow studies were undertaken with the transmission system supplying minimum
demand. At the system minimum demand, the generation is reduced to a level that provides the necessary
margin of reserve capacity that is consistent with the operational practices adopted by OETC to handle
minimum load condition. Table 12 shows the power plants forecasted to be in service at maximum load in
each year of the study. Under minimum load condition, it is assumed that all capacitor banks are switched
out to avoid overvoltage due to excessive reactive power. Table 13 shows the power plants forecasted to be
in service at minimum load in each year of the study

Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017-2021)

The key results of the load flow and fault level studies on OETC transmission system are presented in detail
in Appendix C for each year over the period 2017 to 2021. System diagrams from C.1 to C.10 are showing
the results of the peak demand for MIS and Dhofar. Load flows have also been produced and are available
for both MIS and Dhofar in Appendix C.

The results for MIS and Dhofar include the following:

 Table C.1 shows the transformer percentage loading of all grid stations at system peak demand.

 Table C.2 shows the available spare capacity at each grid station in relation to firm capacity at system
peak demand. It should be noted that although spare MVA capacities are available at some individual
grid stations, there is no guarantee that all can be exploited simultaneously. Lack of available
generation and/or voltage level limits may restrict simultaneous utilization of all spare MVA capacities.

 Table C.3 shows the percentage loading of each overhead line and underground cable in the
transmission system at system peak demand.

 Tables C.4 (a) and C.4 (b) show the voltage profile at each 400kV, 220kV, and 132kV and 33kV bus-
bar at maximum and minimum load respectively.

 Table C.5 shows the calculated transmission losses and generation margin at peak demand.

 Tables C.6 and C.7 show the maximum three-phase and single-phase to earth short-circuit currents
respectively.

The principal findings from the power system studies are:

 Grid Stations Firm Capacities of MIS
a) All 400/220kV, and 400/132kV grid stations developed during 2017 to 2021 will have firm capacities
as indicated in Table C.1. Moreover, these grid stations will have appreciable amount of spare
transformer capacities during the same period as indicated in Table C.2 and for future needs.
b) Most of the 220/132kV grid stations have adequate amounts of spare capacity available over the period
from 2017 to 2021 to cope with growth in demand. Some of these grid stations might be out of firm at
the summer peak in some years as indicated in tables C.1 and C.2, but will have adequate capacity by
2021. The three new 220/132kV grid stations that will be commissioned over the period 2017-2021 at
Mobella, Khaborah and Muladah, will substantially increase the amount of grid transformer capacity
connected to the transmission system to facilitate further development of the transmission system.
c) Some of 132/33kV grid stations show lack of capacity from 2017 to 2019. For example, at summer
peak of 2017, thirteen grid stations will operate above their firm capacity. At summer peak of 2018,
eight grid stations will operate above their firm capacity but none of the grid stations will be overloaded.
During 2017 to 2021, a number of 132/33kV grid stations will be upgraded and new ones are introduced
to remove none-firm conditions at some locations. The number will decrease to two 132/33 kV at
summer peak of 2019. All 132/33kV grid stations will be operating within their firm capacity in 2020.

Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017-2021)

d) The number of out-of-firm grid stations during the period 2017 to 2021 are (this is shown graphically
in Figure 15):
 2017 – 13
 2018 – 8
 2019 – 2
 2020 – 0
 2021 – 0
e) In summer peak of 2017, there are three transformers temporally supplying their individual loads in
order to mitigate over firm issues and provide additional capacity at some 132/33kV grid stations. From
2018, there will be no transformer operating individually.
f) The number of 132kV overhead lines operating above firm capacity over the summer peak period 2017-
2021 will be as follows:
 2017 – 1
 2018 – 2
 2019 – 0
 2020 – 1
 2021 – 0
g) All 220kV overhead transmission lines are within their corresponding firm capacity over the years 2017
to 2021.
h) All 400kV overhead transmission lines are well within their corresponding firm capacity over the years
2017 to 2021.
i) Implementation of the development projects described in Section 5 and the updated load transfer
programme of Table 8 will restore the full system to be in compliance with Transmission Security
Standard requirements.
 Grid Stations Firm Capacities of Dhofar
a) Awqad 132/33kV grid station shows lack of capacity in 2017. During 2018 and 2019, all
132/33kV grid stations will be within the firm capacity. In 2020, Thumrait grid station will
operate above it firm capacity. In 2021, all 132/33kV grid stations will be operating within their
firm capacity.
b) The number of out-of-firm grid stations during the period 2017 to 2021 are (this is shown
graphically in Figure 16):
 2017 – 1
 2018 – 0
 2019 – 0
 2020 – 1
 2021 – 0

 Voltage Profile of MIS
a) The voltage at the 400kV busbars will be maintained within the ±5 % voltage limit at the extremes
of maximum and minimum demand during the study period. Figure 17 shows comparisons of
400kV busbar voltages at minimum and maximum demand conditions in years 2019 and 2020.
b) The voltage at the 220kV and 132kV busbars will be maintained within the ±10 % voltage limit
at the extremes of maximum and minimum demand during years 2017-2021.
c) The 33kV busbar voltages at all grid stations will be maintained within ±6 % of nominal voltage
during these extreme load conditions of maximum and minimum demand, i.e. all 33kV busbars
will be within the acceptable operating range specified in the Grid Code. In fact, the voltage at
33kV busbars is well regulated to be within around 1.0 p.u. in all cases by exploiting the
automatic on-load tap-changer of the 132/33kV transformers.
d) Figures 18 and 19 show samples of voltage profiles at Airport Heights and MIS grid stations.
These grid stations have three voltage levels: 220kV, 132kV and 33kV. Although the voltage at
220kV and 132kV busbars can change within the allowable range (depending on the load), the
voltage at the grid supply points is well regulated at almost 33kV level (1.0 p.u.).

 Voltage Profile of Dhofar
a) The voltage at the 132kV busbars will be maintained within the ±10 % voltage limit at the extremes
of maximum and minimum demand during years 2017-2021.
b) The 33kV busbar voltages at all grid stations will be maintained within ±6 % of nominal voltage
during these extreme load conditions of maximum and minimum demand, i.e. all 33kV busbars
will be within the acceptable operating range specified in the Grid Code. In fact, the voltage at
33kV busbars is well regulated to be within around 1.0 p.u. in all cases by exploiting the automatic
on-load tap-changer of the 132/33kV transformers.
c) Figures 20, 21 and 22 show samples of voltage profiles at SFZ, Ittin and Al Qarm grid stations.
These grid stations have two voltage levels: 132kV and 33kV. Although the voltage at 132kV
busbars can change within the allowable range (depending on the load), the voltage at the grid
supply points is well regulated at almost 33kV level (1.0 p.u.).

 Transmission Losses of MIS
The calculated active power loss on the transmission system at peak demand over the period from
2017 to 2021 ranges between 1.61 and 1.38 of respective total generation as shown in Table C.5 and
Figure 23. The average power loss is about 1.44% which is well within international norms.

 Transmission Losses of Dhofar
The calculated active power loss on the transmission system at peak demand over the period from
2017 to 2021 ranges between 0.47 % and 0.32% of respective total generation as shown in Table C.5
and Figure 24. The average power loss is about 0.34%, which is still within international norms.

Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017-2021)

 Load Growth of MIS
The high growth rate of the existing load coupled with major new industrial developments in many
areas and major tourism projects around the coast to the east and west of Muscat presents a major
challenge to OETC in providing the capacity needed to satisfy demand over the next five years. Table
C.5 shows the expected peak load increases from 6473 MW in 2017 to 8183 MW in 2021 which
amounts to an increase of about 26.42% during the study period. Figure 25 shows the expected peak
load growth from 2017 to 2021. This peak load includes grid stations and industrial loads, but excludes
transmission losses and including the Aux and desalination of the power plants.

 Load Growth of Dhofar
The high growth rate of the existing load coupled with major new industrial developments in many
areas and major tourism projects around the coast of Dhofar presents a major challenge to OETC in
providing the capacity needed to satisfy demand over the next five years. Table C.5 shows that the
expected peak load increases from 579 MW in 2017 to 823 MW in 2021 which amounts to an increase
of about 42.14% during the study period. Figure 26 shows the expected peak load growth from 2017
to 2021. This peak load includes grid, industrial, auxiliary and desalination loads, but excludes
transmission losses and including the Aux and desalination of the power plants.

Page | 88
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017-2021)

Figure 26: Peak load growth over the period 2017-2021 of Dhofar

The load flow studies show that the planned 400kV, 220kV and 132kV transmission developments will add
substantial new capacity to the transmission system that will enable the transmission system as a whole to
cope with new demand in compliance with the Transmission Security Standard. Consequently opportunities
for the connection of new load should be available where spare capacity exists.

8.2 Fault levels for MIS and Dhofar Systems
a)- Three-Phase Short Circuit Studies
The maximum 3-Phase and Single-Phase short-circuit current have been determined in accordance with
IEC 60909 and as such the calculation excludes the contribution to fault level from sources at lower
voltages, e.g. from induction motors connected at 11 kV or below. The method is valid and consistent with
that followed by other transmission companies in the absence of data from the Distribution Companies for
short-circuit back-feeds to the grid station 33kV busbars. Table C.6 summarises the results of the 3-phase
fault studies over the period 2017-2021 for both systems MIS and Dhofar:

 All of the 400kV busbars have fault levels well within the corresponding switchgear ratings.

 All of the 220kV busbars have fault levels within the corresponding switchgear ratings.

 All the 132kV buses have fault levels within the corresponding switchgear ratings.

 The 3-phase short-circuit level at all 33kV busbars does not exceed the switchgear rating.

Page | 89
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017-2021)

b) - Single-Phase Short Circuit Studies
Table C.7 summarises the results of maximum single-phase short circuit studies for years from 2017 to
2021 for both systems MIS and Dhofar. In the years from 2017 to 2021 the fault levels across the
transmission system are within the corresponding switchgear short-circuit ratings. Only for MIS system,
the major technical issue identified in the studies was with high short-circuit fault levels on the 132kV bus
bars at four grid stations in the Muscat area. The grid stations at Ghubrah, Bousher, Rusail and Madinat
Sultan Qaboos (MSQ) were all shown in earlier studies to have high 132kV fault levels. During 2017-2018,
OETC has taken appropriate remedial action to address this problem in the short–term by spliting the 132kV
bus bars or opening some of 132kV lines at Muscat region without impacting the security requirements.
From 2019, there will be no longer need for busbars splitting due to the network development and
reconfiguration works. Therefore all busbars will be returned to normal operation. However, some 132kV
lines will still be needed to be kept open to reduce the infeed short circuit contribution and this is a part of
OETC long term strategy to operate the 400kV and 220kV as the main transmission voltages.

9. Development Opportunities

From the results of the load flow and fault level studies, and from analysis of the magnitude and location
of generation and demand on the transmission system it is possible to give some indications as to where
future generation and demand can be connected to the transmission system without causing any critical
technical issues.

9.1 Review of the Generation Versus Load Balance on an Area Basis
The performance of the transmission system is affected by the transfer of power, both real and reactive,
from one region to another. Large power transfers between regions over long distances increase the voltage
drop across the transmission system. They also increase the power losses and reduce the efficiency of the
system. Ideally, if the balance between generation and demand is maintained on a regional or area basis
then power transfers over long distances can be minimised, thus leading to improvement of the transmission
system efficiency and voltage regulation.

Figure 27 shows the connectivity of the OETC transmission system at MIS area in 2021 as it extends over
the northern regions of Oman, a distance of around 550 km from Madinat Shinas in the North West to JBB
Ali in the southeast. Figure 28 shows the connectivity of the OETC transmission system at Dhofar area in
2021 as it extends over the northern regions of Dhofar, a distance of around 67 km from NPS grid station
in the North West to Ashoor grid station in the south-west. To assess how generation and load is distributed
over the transmission system the whole supply area has been split into eight geographic areas:

a) Muscat
b) Al Batinah South
c) Al Batinah North
d) Al Bureimi
e) Al Dhahirah
f) Al Dakhiliah
g) Al Sharqiyah
h) Dhofar

Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017-2021)

Figures 29 to 36 show graphically the generation and load in each of the eight areas. The significant
differences in generation and load imbalance in areas such as Muscat, Al Batinah North, and Al Sharqiyah
necessitate high development and investment in the transmission system to facilitate power transfer among
the different areas in order to supply the growing loads.

Muscat area, although geographically the smallest area, is by far the most heavily populated, with the
highest demand (2453.2MW in 2017, rising to 2947.3MW in 2021) and with limited amount of connected
generation (1066MW in 2017, increasing to 1689MW in 2021).This will result in power deficits of
1387MW in 2017 and 1258MW in 2021. Muscat area has three power plants; Ghubrah (377MW in 2017
and will be retired by 2019), Rusail (689MW during the period 2017-2021) and new Misfah IPP (1000MW
in 2021) .The reduction in the generation of Muscat area from 2019 is due to planned retirement of all
generating units of Ghubrah power plant after peak of 2018. However, the new generation in Muscat area
at Misfah will compensate the reduction in generation and meet the demand growth.

Figure 29: Generation and load balance in Muscat area
Al Batinah South area covers the coastal strip between Barka on the western outskirts of the Muscat area
and Sohar. This area is likely to develop as Muscat, since the main road link between Muscat and Sohar
runs through it. Currently, there are three power plants in Al Batiniah South; Barka Phase-I (410MW),
Barka Phase-II (663MW) and Barka Phase-III (754MW). As shown in Table 14, the load in this area rises
from 908.2MW in 2017 to 1079.4MW in 2021. The power surplus decreases from 920MW in summer peak
of 2017 to 726MW in summer peak of 2021. This area having enough generations to supply the local
demand and exporting to others regions. In 2019, the load at Al Batinah South will be reduce due to the
load transfer from Barka Main to Halban and Mobella grid stations.

Figure 30: Generation and load balance in Al Batinah South area
Al Batinah North area is rapidly developing around the new port at Sohar with new industry seeking
connections to the OETC transmission system or the distribution system of Majan Electricity Company.
Some of the largest industrial customers in the area, such as Sohar Aluminium Company operates their own
generating plant and on occasions supply power to the transmission system on a non-contracted basis. The
load in Al Batinah North area significantly increases from 1331.2MW in 2017 to 2058.8 MW in 2021, as
shown in Table 14. Al Batinah North area has three power plants; Sohar-I (566MW during the period 2017-
2021), Sohar-II (with total 754MW power during the period 2017-2021) and Sohar-III IPP will be in the
service in 2019 with power capacity of 1708MW. In 2017, the generation defecit in this area will be
11.2MW and will increase to reach 335.0MW in 2018. In 2019 Sohar-III IPP will be in service and the
generation surplus will be 1113.6MW. In 2021 the generation surplus is expected to be 969.2MW.

The transmission system in the Al Bureimi area provides the interconnection with the GCCIA through UAE
(Abu Dhabi Transco) supplies a number of grid stations that feed Majan Distribution System. Wadi Al Jizzi
power plant is the only generation in Al Bureimi area with power capacity of 326MW (during the period
2017-2019) and planned to retire all the gerenating untis after peak of 2018. In 2017 and 2018, the
generation surplus is 153.9MW and 142.9MW respectively. In 2019, 2020 and 2021 the deficiency in
generation will be 194.4MW, 206.6MW and 219.8MW respectively.

There will be one new generartion at Al Dhahirah (Ibri IPP) and it will be in the service in 2018 with power
capacity of 940MW. The capacity of Ibri IPP will reach 1508MW in 2019. The load in this area will increase
from 246.5MW in 2017 to 301.6MW in 2021, as shown in Table 14. Power is transmitted from Wadi Al
Jizzi generating plant over long distance to supply the grid stations at Ibri, Dank and Al Hayl grid stations.
However, the 220kV systems from Mahadha in Bureimi area to Ibri produced an improvement in the
voltage quality and increase the security of supply. In 2017, the deficiency in generation will be 246.5MW.
In 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 the generation surplus is 680.8MW, 1235.5MW, 1221.3MW and 1206.4MW
respectively due to the presence of Ibri IPP power plant.

The transmission system in the Dhofar area provides the interconnection with the PDO and supplies a
number of grid stations that feed DPC Distribution System to supply Salalah city, a number of towns and
villages in Dhofar area. Currently, there are two power plants in Dhofar area; NPS Power Plant (273MW)
and Salalah IPP Power Plant (429MW).

In addition, there will be a new generartion (Salalah-2 IPP) at Dhofar and it will be in the service in 2018
with power capacity of 438MW. Furthermore, there will be a Wind Farm at Dhofar area and it will be in
the service in 2019 with power capacity of 50MW. However, this Wind Farm is not centrally dispatched
generating units and will be treated as a load disturbance. As shown in Table 14, the load in Dhofar area
rises from 551.9MW in 2017 to 790.2MW in 2021. In 2017, the generation surplus is 151MW. In 2018,
Salalah-2 IPP Power Plant will be in service and the generation surplus is 550MW and will decrease to
350MW in 2021 due to the load growth.

10. Non-compliances

The load flow studies summarised in Appendix C and discussed in Sections 8 and 9 of this Statement
indicate a number of out-of firm grid stations and circuits in the early years of the Statement. In this final
section, a review of each grid station / circuit, which is currently failing to meet the Transmission Security
Standards are preseneted. In addition, a describition of the development activities that OETC is undertaking
to address this non-compliance and indicates the expected time by which, in each instance, full
Transmission Security Standards compliance should be achieved are preseneted.
It should be noted that the level of the security requirements on the transmission system would change in
future as the demand on the system increases and as the system configuration changes. It is possible that
further non-compliances might arise in the future until the overall system becomes substantially more robust
through interconnection. OETC will keep this situation under review, and the non-compliance status will
be updated in the 2018 Capability Statement.
As indicated in sections 8, 9 and summarized in Tables 16, 17 and 18, there are some grid stations and
overhead lines/cables, which do not comply with the Transmission Security Standard. Therefore, it will be
necessary for a further location and duration for specific derogations to be put in place by the authority for
each of the noted out of firm circuits in Table 16 and for each of the grid stations which do not comply with
the Transmission Security Standard at peak and maintenance time noted in Table 17 and 18 respectively.
The following points should be noted:
1- The loading results show in Tables C1 and C3 (Appendix C), are those at the peak load conditions. The
system peak lasts only for a period of less than one hour in one day during the relevant year.
2- According to the most recent OPWP data, there are two forecast cases: (i) expected case, and (ii) high
case. The difference between the high and expected case in 2017 for MIS system is 403 MW and for Dhofar
system is 24 MW at the peak. This difference increases in the subsequent years and reaches 1085 MW for
MIS system and 238 MW for Dhofar system in 2021, indicating uncertainty in the forecast over the coming
years especially with regards to new industrial loads. OETC intends to monitor closely, in coordination
with OPWP, the situation in order to assess the probability associated with the high case projection and the
effect of the approved Cost Reflected Tariff (CRT).
3- It is not prudent to invest in uncertain expansion. OETC will initiate new projects as new demand
becomes more certain. Therefore, Tables 16 and 17 shown conditions at the summer peak of 2017.
4- The modelling reflects all load transfer schemes that have been formally accepted by the relevant
Distribution Company and included in their load forecasts.
OETC has adopted a two-fold approach to addressing these out of firm situations:
1) Reinforcement plans: strategic upgrading to add new circuits and/or to increase the capacity of grid
stations within a minimum of three to five years. This will not just solve the problem but it will
also strengthen the transmission system for future development. This type of solution can only be
applied as a longer-term solution because of the time taken to implement. Reinforcement is the
most robust long-term solution for secure system development, but may not necessarily be the least
cost solution to address the immediate out of firm conditions on the network.

Page | 111
Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017-2021)

2) Load Transfer: through agreement with Distribution Companies, load can be transferred from
heavily loaded grid stations to more lightly loaded grid stations over the next years. This would
reduce the loading issues and balance the system during peak time. This is a mid-term solution
which could be implemented by Distribution Companies in certain cases. Given the uncertainty of
mid-term load forecasts in Oman at present, this is in some circumstances the most appropriate and
economic action to address out of firm conditions on the network.

Tables 16 and 17 indicate a number of circuits and grid stations on the system where, in 2017, the out of
firm condition is shown to exist. Table 18 shows the grid stations which are classified as group E (>115
MW) and not comply with Transmission Security Standard (Second Outage) at 2017 maintenance period.

Five-Year Annual Transmission Capability Statement (2017-2021)

Appendix B: Transmission System Data
B.1 Substations Loads and Capacitor data
The grid station real and reactive power load at system peak demand for the period 2017 to 2021 and the
respective reactive power support from capacitor banks connected at the grid station 33kV busbars is shown
in Table B.1.1This data was used in the power flow studies of system peak demand presented in Section 8
of this Capability Statement.

B.2 Overhead Line Circuit Capacities and Parameters
The continuous thermal rating of a circuit is the maximum power flow that can be carried by that circuit on
a continuous basis. The thermal rating of an overhead line is the power flow that can be carried by that line
without infringing the statutory clearances and causing a risk to public safety and to the line itself. The
thermal rating of an underground cable, however, is the maximum power flow that the cable can carry
without either causing the cable to fail or to effectively reduce its projected lifespan through a deterioration
of the cable insulation.

Although the thermal rating of an overhead line is affected by climatic conditions, for the purpose of
assessing spare capacity on the transmission system the key climatic condition that limits the circuit rating
is the summer rating when the temperature is at its highest and the solar radiation is at its peak. This also
corresponds to when the electricity demand is at or near to its peak.

The circuit data presented in Table B.2 for the first year of the Statement period (2017) comprises the
voltage, resistance, reactance, susceptance and thermal rating of the line and cable circuits. It also shows
the circuit length and the type of overhead conductor or underground cable for each circuit.

Table B.3 shows the changes to the circuit data required in each of the other four years covered by the
Statement.

B.3 Transformer data
The data used to model the grid supply point transformers in the power flow studies of the 2017 summer
peak demand condition is listed in Table B.4. The data comprises the transformer voltage ratio, the
resistance and reactance, the tap range and step size. Table B.5 lists changes to the transformer data for the
remaining four year of the statement.

The 33kV busbars at the grid supply points and the capacitors connected to them are owned and operated by the distribution companies.
