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.
Changing faces with technology
Capacitors and meters are two important and intelligent parts of a power supply system. While the former regulates/stabilises the output supply, the latter measures consumption. Both these equipments have wider applications in power supply.
