India's power grid set to become world's largest: Scindia

When the south Indian region's power grids integrated with the remaining grids in India in next January, India will have the largest integrated electricity grid in the world. The national grid is currently inter-connected with the northern, western and eastern regions. The southern grid is yet to be connected, said the Union Power Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia.

Jyotiraditya Scindia said that the integration will ensure greater efficiency and transfer of power from surplus regions of the country to the deficit ones.

Scindia is also ensuring that proper checks and balances are put in place to avoid re-occurrence of a major grid collapse, similar to the one witnessed last summer. To prevent a repeat of the grid collapse — that deprived 600 million people of power for several hours — the ministry is expected to announce measures including amendments to the Electricity Act 2003, thereby giving special powers to agencies that control and regulate grid discipline.

The existing flaws where regional load dispatch controllers (RLDCs) do not have power to disconnect load to the erring states will be done away with, the Minister said.
