Chandigarh, Nov 17 (UNI) The power distribution corporations of Haryana have completed erection work of 667 feeders of 11 KV level for segrageting of domestic and agricultural load, Managing Director, DHBVN Anurag Agarwal said here today.

This would ensure power to domestic consumers on urban mode and improve supply to the agriculture sector, he said while addressing the officers of of both the distribution corporations of the State, Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam and Uttar Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam.

To give power supply to rural domestic consumers in Haryana on urban mode and more reliable and qualitative supply to tube wells, the Haryana power distribution corporations will erect 1235 new 11 KV feeders to segregate rural domestic and agriculture load in the state at a cost of Rs. 589 crores.

The project would cover 6822 villages all over Haryana after completion by the end of this year. The feeders which have small number of tubewells the load would be divided by installing Rural Load Management System (RLMS).

The Managing Director asked the officers to complete the project by the end of December, 2008 as the government has given utmost priority to this project being beneficial for rural people and farmers.

Mr Agarwal said that the work had gained momentum and would be completed at an accelerated speed so that better supply for longer period could be given to the rural domestic consumers and the agriculture sector could also get quality power supply during the fixed hours.

With the creation of this system, there would be three phase power supply in rural area for whole of the scheduled period and as such there would be no shortage of supply for drinking water purposes and for other activities dependent on three phase supply in rural area.

It would open opportunity for setting up industries in rural Haryana also.

He said that segregation of domestic and agriculture load in rural area would be beneficial for the farmers by way of lesser interruptions in power supply, reduced number of damage to tube well motors, reduction in damage of shunt capacitors and increased efficiency of tube wells.

RLMS would be controlled from a centrally located control room through internet on computer. The control room will receive all information of each transformer for agriculture supply having RLMS installed, including load pattern, consumption, quantity of power supplied, timings of supply, etc. However, the RLMS may trip the distribution system in case of excess load than that of sanctioned.
