Consistent and steady power supply is fundamental to ensure oil and gas production in any region. It is particularly important for regions with no developed federal network infrastructure. Eastern Siberia is one of those regions. Here oil and gas producing enterprises have to make isolated power systems from scratch to ensure their own production activities.

The paper outlines the experience of Irkutsk Oil Company in making its own complex automated system of active and reactive power collective control (ARPCR) based on the power plants of Yaraktinskoye and Ichedinskoye fields. The present state of generation was analyzed. The paper presents the data on the stock of operating power units, special features of their operation and the gross installed capacity of the Company's power system. Promising solutions that were being actively implemented for the making of operational technological centers for the control of generating capacities were listed. The principles of the forming control center were described. One of the most important advantages is the ability to assess automatically the operating modes of multiunit power plants and connected networks without human involvement. The system being created is equipped with the ability to connect to collective control of any number of power units from each power plant from a single automated workstation. The paper highlighted an important principle of operation which was automatic collective control with proportional distribution of power consumption between power units. This control method allows a daily operation schedule in order to maintain the frequency and voltage of the generated electric current. The preprogrammed algorithms make it possible to influence the controls in minimum required time frames and to manage the power system effectively in normal and transient modes. It was highlighted that in the near future Irkutsk Oil Company is completing the implementation of the entire system.
