Power Quality Issues In Indian Power Distribution Utilities And Feasible Solutions

[Full Text]

Distribution system, power quality, transformer, interruption, standards



One important contributing factor to India’s slow pace of development in general and relatively poor industrial growth in particular is the poor quality and reliability of the electrical power. Earlier, the consumers of electrical energy were mere acceptors. Interruptions and other voltage disturbances were part of the deal. But today, electric power is viewed as a product with certain characteristics which can be measured, predicted, guaranteed, improved, etc. which has become an integral part of our life. This paper gives insights on different Power Quality (PQ) problems experienced by the Indian electricity consumers, and the reasons for those problems. This paper proposes feasible solutions to assist in employing or implementing appropriate mitigation techniques with an optimism of an improvement in the field scenario as more and more investments are proposed in Generation, Transmission and Distribution Sectors, and stringent codes and standards are being imposed for those who do not maintain minimum PQ level in the field.
