Power situation improves, No load shedding during peak period
New Delhi, May 9 (UNI) The power situation today improved further as compared to that during the last week with no loadshedding during the peak period even though the demand rose to the season's high of 3447 MW.
Though the power company Delhi Transco had to resort to a total load shedding of 271 MW during the day, even that was to meet shortage due to the frequency problems being experienced by the Northern Grid.
The problem of low frequency of power in the Northern Grid has persisted over the last few weeks due to overdrawing from the network by the other states in the region.
Last week, it forced the Delhi Transco to take recourse to loadshedding to keep the grid under control.
Nevertheless, Delhi Transco sources feel that with some Central power plants like those at Dadri and Sanghrauli expected to be back into operation soon, power generation of the Grid might improve in the next week to ten days.
Infact, the Transco sources expect the power situation in Delhi to completely normalise by the middle of May by which time many of power plants are expected to be back in operation.
