Transmission Development Plan 2014-2015 Final Report

Major Network Development

December 2016


NGCP’s transmission system network consists of 500 kV, 350 kV HVDC, 230 kV, 138 kV, 115 kV and 69 kV high voltage lines and cables. As the sole transmission service provider, NGCP plays a vital role in the safe and reliable transmission of electricity in response to system requirements and market demands. It continues to improve the reliability, adequacy, security and stability of the grid in the three major regions of the Philippines, namely: Luzon, the Visayas and Mindanao.

As the System Operator of the Philippine power grid, NGCP balances the supply and demand of electricity to efficiently serve all of its customers – power generators, private distribution utilities, electric cooperatives, government-owned utilities, eco-zones, industries, as well as directly-connected customers. It is responsible in dispatching the power plants and transmitting the generated power to the various distribution utilities which, in turn, deliver the electricity at a lower voltage to households and other end-users. NGCP also operates and maintains metering facilities and provides technical services, particularly system studies, and operation and maintenance of customer facilities.

This Transmission Development Plan (TDP) outlines the planned projects which are required to address the system needs for the period 2016 to 2025.
