Working at POWERGRID
Smart Grid facilitates efficient and reliable end-to-end intelligent two-way delivery system from source to sink through integration of renewable energy sources, smart transmission and distribution. In this way Smart Grid technology shall bring efficiency and sustainability in meeting the growing electricity demand with reliability and best of the quality.
Smart Grid also enables real time monitoring and control of power system as well as helps in reduction of AT&C losses, demand response and demand side management, power quality management, outage management, smart home energy system etc. Smart Grid will act as a backbone infrastructure to enable new business models like smart city, electric vehicles, smart communities apart from more resilient and efficient energy system and tariff structures. Recognizing the importance, POWERGRID has taken pioneering steps in bringing Smart Grid technology to all facets of power supply value chain & developed smart grid pilot project at Puducherry through open collaboration covering all attributes of smart grid in distribution.
POWERGRID evolved a comprehensive plan for integration of renewable capacity addition envisaged in the 12th plan as part of “Green Energy Corridors” report. About 43GW capacity is envisaged mainly through wind & solar in 12th plan in the eight (8) renewable rich states viz. Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and Jammu & Kashmir. The plan includes Intra State as well as Inter-state transmission strengthening(s) and other related infrastructure like dynamic reactive compensation, energy storage, smart grid applications, forecasting of renewable generation, real time monitoring, establishment of renewable energy management centre, electric vehicles, investment etc. It also covers perspective plan for integration of renewables by 2030
Vol-II of the Green energy corridor report covers the RE complex in various states, Load flow study results, various annexures, exhibits and appendices.
