Leaps and Bounds
Transmission and distribution (T&D) losses, Aggregate Transmission and Commercial losses (AT&C), quality of power and fluctuation in power supply are some of the major challenges faced by Indian power utilities. This is despite not overlooking the fact that in the last decade, the country witnessed sizeable improvement in quality of power, especially in urban and semi-urban areas.
Domestic price competitions affects product quality
India has a strong base of over 500 transformer industries with an overall capacity of 1,000 GVA per annum. The contribution for discoms/utilities is about 50 per cent while rest is catering to the export market.
New storage technologies will solve issues grids will face in the future
Dr Fahd Hashiesh, Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology, and Technology Manager, ABB Ltd., UK, speaks on some of the latest technologies spurring the growth of grids and their relevance to the Indian context. Disturbances and outages are common across the Indian power grid. How can power system simulations help? Are these solutions being used in India?
Power system simulations play an important role in overcoming disturbances. In fact the more offline studies that can be perfo
