conventions

BBMB had changed the numbering scheme of two BBMB Sub-Stations i.e. 220kV Jagadhri and
220kV Samaypur. No problems were faced/reported during or after the implementation of revised
databases and displays. In view of the above, BBMB in the last meeting had requested that they may
be allowed to carry out changes for other BBMB Stations as well. HVPNL had stated that they have
not received the modified single line diagrams for the stations modified by BBMB. They also stated
that before implementing similar modifications in other stations, they would like to observe the
modified stations for at least one month. It was decided that further modification will be carried out
after one month of observation and feedback from HVPN.
BBMB may give the feed back of modification and Members may like to deliberate.
5.

Extension of Comprehensive AMC for SCADA/EMS system

there is provision under the clause no.8.1 of the existing contract for extension of another two years at
the same terms & conditions. Since the equipments are under use and are required to be maintained to
facilitate secured functioning of the NR grid, the existing contract need to be extended for a period of
two years effective from 1st Oct, 2010.

8.

Database updation & on lining

NRLDC has reported that the modification in the database files are to be done to incorporate changes in
the system parameters/configuration and the same should be made available before 10th of each
month so that the on lining could be done in a planned way. It has however been observed that correct
network parameters are not entered while preparing the database. This is creating delay in onlining and
giving erroneous flows in state Estimator output. It is requested that all files may be sent to NRLDC
before 10th of every month after due checking of the network parameters.
Members may like to deliberate.

9. Insurance of equipment installed under ULDC-NR system


MOU was signed between POWERGRID and Northern Regional Constituents for taking insurance
of equipment installed under ULDC-NR. The MOU signed is valid for five years from the signing of
MOU (i.e. upto July 2010.)
Present insurance taken for the equipment awarded to United India Insurance Company Ltd shall
expire on 31st July, 2010. POWERGRID had requested constituents to take necessary action for
insurance of the equipment post expiry of the current insurance policy.
BBMB has intimated that the ownership of the equipment installed & supplied as spare/ testing
under ULDC- NR system is still with POWERGRID, as the equipment has not been transferred to
5

the constituents. As such, it will not be technically possible for the constituents to arrange the
insurance of the equipment as the equipment are not on the constituents book. BBMB has proposed
that the existing insurance practice may be continued.
Members may like to deliberate.
