The gap seems to be reducing, and the pace of new technology adoption will accelerate over the next few years. However, the power pricing policy creates distortions impeding an environment where newer technologies can be implemented.
The Powerful backup
24x7 power supply is a rarity in India. There are very few places in the country that can boast of having continuous supply of power. All this has resulted in growth of inverters, UPS and DG sets, fondly called the ´power backup´ industry.
Demand is set to be driven by smart grids and T&D
The growth of industrial and commercial infrastructure in India coupled with the rising energy costs has fuelled the need for more reliable and energy efficient power management solutions.
Small part, big effect
Capacitors are fairly simple devices, ranging in size from a thimble to a soda can, that smooth out fluctuations in electrical voltage.
In India, power quality concerns are rising
In a power shortage situation, distribution infrastructure should minimise transmission losses and bridge the power demand-supply gap, Raja Kochar, MD, Eaton Corporation, informs R Srinivasan.
