About The Event

Mission

The Indian power transmission sector is going through a dynamic and exciting period as it prepares to meet the challenges resulting from anever increasing load and complexity.

The last year has been particularly eventful, with great progress being made in almost all fronts.

The process of separating the wires business from load despatch has begun with the formation of the Power System Corporation of India. Thenew transmission pricing mechanism has been notified by the Central Electricity Regulatory Commission (CERC). The Indian Electricity GridCode has been revised with more effective provisions for the integration of renewable power. The unscheduled interchange charges have beenrationalised to discourage and penalise habitual overdrawing entities.

The inter-regional transmission capacity is now over 22,400 MW, with the national grid likely to be completed by 2012. Already, the North-East-West grid is one of the largest in the world, handling over 118 GW of generation capacity. The first 800 kV high voltage direct current (HVDC) lineis under implementation and the 1,200 kV technology is being tested. A smart grid pilot project has been initiated using the synchrophasor-basedwide area measurement system (WAMS) technology.

Private participation in transmission has also received a boost, with recent awards of five independent power transmission company projects.This is important, given the level of future investment requirements (Rs 2,400 billion in the Twelfth Plan).

The mission of this conference is to provide an update on the recent progress, put a spotlight on future plans, discuss key issues/concerns, andhighlight new opportunities. The conference will also showcase new and noteworthy initiatives, projects and technologies.
