Chandigarh, Nov 13 (UNI) The Dakhin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN) plans to bifurcate or trifurcate 40 overloaded and lengthier feeders of 11 KV level in to the feeders of proper load and length in Gurgaon town to renovate its power distribution system.
While stating this here today a spokesman of the Nigam said that under this plan, each feeder having load of more than 150 ampere and length more than laid standard would be divided into two or three feeders.
While dividing the feeders, their complete system would be overhauled and additional distribution transformers would be set up as per requirement.
Loading on the distribution transformers would be kept under check and in case of a transformer getting overloaded, a transformer of higher capacity would be installed to cope with the load. Load equal to or less than 70 per cent of the capacity would be put on a transformer, thus, keeping 30 per cent safety part.
He said that the feeder bifurcation scheme includes replacement of the old and worn out undersized conductor on lines. Aerial bunched cable (ABC) would be used for safety where right of way for overhead conductor was not available.
The existing 11 KV lines would be extended to take close to the load centre so that power supply was available at proper voltage even at tails of feeders.
He said that the DHBVN also plans to convert 13 feeders of 11 KV level to High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS).
While laying HVDS, complete system of the feeders, right from their emanating point to the consumers end, would be renovated and additional transformers would also be set up as per requirement.
The feeders had already been identified.
While laying this system of international standard, a larger number of distribution transformers of smaller capacity of less than 25 KVA would be setup. Only 10 to 20 consumers would be connected to each transformer using independent armoured or ABC cables, he said.
