7.      APCPDCL, Andhra Pradesh

Location:

Jeedimetla Industrial Area

Project Summary:

The proposed project area is covered under RAPDRP Scheme; DAS, IT and SCADA shall be implemented. The functionalities of Peak load management, Power Quality and Outage Management are proposed by implementing Automated Metering Infrastructure (AMI) for Residential Consumers and Industrial Consumers.

Benefits:

–          Reduced AT&C loss

–          Reduced purchase of high cost power at peak hours

Key Facts

Project Type: Smart Grid Pilot in Power Distribution Sector
Total cost of project: Rs. 41.82 Cr
MoP Share: Rs. 20.91 Cr
Funding Programme: RAPDRP, Part-C
Project timeline: 18 months
New Technology: The functionalities identified for implementation are AMI for Residential and Industrial, Outage Management, Peak Management and Power Quality management. The design proposes a Smart Grid Control Center housing the IT systems, a two way communication system for AMI. The number of customers in the project area is 38303.However over 11904 are covered under AMI implementation and smart meters will be for these numbers of customers. The top level applications to roll out the functionalities would leverage on the features of DAS, IT coming under RAPDRP. The CBM for DTR is proposed as an early warning of health of assets. The customer web portal based on Green Button standards would provide all customer related information and to seek their participation.

 8.      APDCL, Assam

Location:

Guwahati distribution region

Project Summary:

The pilot project covers 15,000 consumers involving 90MUs of input energy. APDCL is in the process IT Implementation under R-APDRP and SCADA/DMS implementation is also to be taken up shortly. APDCL has proposed the functionality of Peak Load Management using Industrial and Residential AMI, Integration of Distributed Generation (Solar and available back-up DG Set) and Outage Management system. The utility has envisaged that Power Quality Monitoring will be a by-product of the deployment.

Benefits:

–       Increased available energy during peak time

–       Revenue increase through Power Quality measurements and power factor penalty

–          Reduction in AT&C Losses

–          Reduction in interest payments due to deferred Capital Investment in sub-transmission networks

–          Improvement of availability (reduction of Customer Minutes Lost)

–          Improved management of power procurement options

–          Unscheduled Interchange using Short Term Load Forecasts

Key Facts

Project Type: Smart Grid Pilot in Power Distribution Sector
Total cost of project: Rs. 29.94 Cr
MoP Share: Rs. 14.97 Cr
Funding Programme: RAPDRP, Part-C
Project timeline: 18 months
New Technology: Integration of the 100kW solar farm into the distribution network via a bidirectional inverter and use of battery storage, possibly Vanadium redox battery, in conjunction with the solar farm, R&D on Load forecasting based on the weather, social events, festivals etc. and developing “if-then” scenarios to find optimal course of action for each scenario Developing controllers for the bidirectional inverter and battery integration, Development of filters for reduction of harmonics injected into the grid and integrating it into the smart meters, Development of messaging systems (for display in house and on mobile) for power consumption information and methods to reduce energy consumption.
