Chapter 1: General Aspects on System Security
This chapter covers the general aspects which affect reliability of the All India grid. Chapters 2 to 6
indicate the constraints faced in Northern, Eastern, Western, Southern and North Eastern regions
respectively during the July-September 2013 quarter.

1.1. Uncertainty in load growth


The planning of transmission system is done on the basis of anticipated generation growth and demand
projections in National Electricity Plans and Electric Power Surveys. However, in actual operation the
demand incident in each state or region or country as a whole is dependent interalia on the following
factors:
 Growth in other sectors of the economy
 Behavior of the South West monsoon and/or North East monsoon
 Supply side constraints within each state or region.
 Transmission constraints
 Financial viability of DISCOMs in the state which has a bearing on power purchase
 Rural electrification programs
State-wise and region-wise details are enclosed as Annex I.

1.2. Grid Events


The section details the near miss situations, incidents of multiple elements outage, natural calamities
impacting the power system and oscillations observed in the system during the period July to September
2013. The following table summarizes the number of grid incidents in different regions during the quarter.
Details of specific events are enclosed as Annex II.

1.3. Synchronization of SR grid with NEW grid

Southern Region grid has been synchronized with NEW grid on 31st December 2013 at 20:25 hours
through 765kV Raichur-Sholapur-1 S/C line. The line was charged from 765kV Raichur end and
synchronized at 765kV Sholapur end. Just prior to the synchronization, it was ensured that the frequency
difference between SR and NEW grid is less than 0.10 Hz and the angular difference is within +/-50. The
oscillations of the order of 0.2 Hz frequency has been observed for 15-20 seconds while the
synchronization of the SR grid with NEW grid. The PMU plots of oscillations during SR and NEW grid
synchronization on 31st December 2013 are shown below.

Fig ii: oscillations observed in the system during SR and NEW grid synchronization on 31 December 2013

1.4. Frequency Response Characteristics

Frequency Response Characteristic (FRC) is a measure of the natural change in frequency to a given
mismatch in load and generation. Frequency response in an electric power system is essentially provided
by natural damping of loads with frequency and primary response of generators. The importance of
primary response has been brought out in clause 5.2 of the CERC (Indian Electricity Grid Code)
Regulations, 2010. Primary response is of quintessential importance for maintaining the system security
in light of the following:

 Integration of renewable generation


 Interconnection of neighboring countries
 Impact of frequency variation on line flows and voltages
 Avoids large fluctuations in frequency: Reliability of Power System

The following tables give FRC for grid incidents which occurred during the period October-December
2013.

This year due to cyclone,
flood and extended
monsoon, the OHPC
power plants in south
Odisha system had high
availability of water.
Thus, generation at
these power plants
remained normally high.
The entire power
generated by these two
plants lands in Jaynagar.
220 kV Jaynagar further
has connectivity with
Theruvali (via 220 kV

However, major part of
the power generated by
Indravati HPS (600MW),
having high reservoir
storage, also lands at
Theruvali.

As 220 kV Jaynagar-
Jeypore acts as a low

stations, most of the
power landed at
Jaynagar is evacuated
through this line itself.

connected to Kasba via

summer and monsoon
seasons the demand of
West Bengal remains high
causing dip in Jeerat and

there is no adequate

Further to boost voltage of
132KV level, West Bengal
frequently operates on line

deterioration of voltage

respectively. There were
instances when 220 kV Patna-
Khagaul S/C was kept open to
avoid its continuous overloading.
This opening resulted in low
power drawal at Patna ICT.
Further, the power shared by
each circuit of Patna-Barh and

compared to their carrying
capacity, particularly during
periods of low import by NR.
Due to such reduced anchoring,
high voltage problem occurred

reduced the incidents of line
