Respected Sir, ` With ever increase in power demand, power transmission facilities need to be developed at a corresponding pace to meet

the power requirement. As per 17th EPS report the load projection on all India basis for the year 2011-12, 2016-17 and 2021-22 are as below

Year 2011-12 2016-17 2021-22

Peak Demand(India) 152746 218209 298253

Peak Demand(Maharashtra) 21954 28348 35944

To meet the increasing power demand, more and more generation projects of IPPs and other generating companies are being executed. As per provisions of Electricity Act 2003 (section 10) the duties of generating companies shall be to establish, operate and maintain generating stations, substations and dedicated transmission lines, coordinating with State transmission utility. As per this act, State transmission Utilities/Central Transmission Utility has planned EHV and UHV substations and lines for Evacuation of these generation projects. STU (MSETCL) have planned 765 KV substations in Maharashtra and 1200 KV have been planned by PGCIL. These UHV networks will greatly increase the transmission capacity of existing EHV network. Following 765 KV substations and lines have been planned in Maharashtra

1.765 KV S/S at Tiroda 2.765 KV S/S Koradi 3.765 KV S/S at Akola 4.765 KV at Aurangabad

765 KV Tiroda-Koradi-2 X SC line-120 kms 765 KV Koradi-Akola-2 X SC line-270 kms 765 KVAkola-Aurangabad-2 X SC line-240 kms Along with EHV and UHV Substation and lines of PGCIL.

Nevertheless, Building of substations and lines take considerable time to build due to land availability and Right of way issue. The growing interconnection of these UHV networks with existing network may also increase the fault level of the substations. Therefore to

overcome these problems and to keep pace with the increase in power demand, the best way is to make optimal utilisation of existing facility. These can be achieved by dynamic compensation which is well proven since many years in many parts of the world. With it steady state as well as dynamic voltage stabilization in power transmission networks can be achieved meaning increasing power transfer capability and reduced voltage variation.

MSETCL, is therefore keen to conduct dynamic compensation studies for Maharashtra state. For freezing new transmission criteria, the additional requirements which needs to be considered are as below 1. Renewable energy 2. IPP(Independent power producer) 3. Uncertainty in generation 4. HVDC contingency 5. Limiting fault level up to 40 KA.

On that basis dynamic compensation studies should be carried out considering western regional network in state. Kindly give your valuable suggestions regarding this and possibility of achieving the above said objective through workshops with active participation from your side.

Thanking You N.R.Sonkavday S.E (STU), MSETCL, Mumbai
