NAPRA shows an example of increased load shedding


Islamabad: The National Electric Power Regulatory Authority (Nepra) recently took note of the increase in load shedding by consumers of various parts of the country.

It has been found that the underlying cause of the disruption of a smooth electricity supply has been overloaded by the National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC)’s grid station.

According to a statement issued by Nepra, NTDC’s grid stations, especially the Islamabad Electric Supply Company, the Lahore Electric Supply Company and the Peshawar Electric Supply Company, have been carrying heavily in the service sector.

As a result, load shedding has been strengthened for power distribution companies to reduce a load of 500 kilobits of Riyat, Shekhupur, Gati, Malatan, and Shukarpur grid stations and 220 kV of Burhan, New Kot Lakhpat, Kasauli, Mardan, Banu, Bhairari, Muzaffargarh, and Hall. Grid station.

In the last three years, Nepra said NTDC has allowed investment of $ 96.63 billion for the improvement and reliability of the electricity transmission network. However, NTC has failed to make any improvements to its network so far.

“Reflected power breakdowns, transmissions line and power supply related to power supply projects, and power supply related to power supply, among the grid stations in NTCG, mentioned in several other things, indicate the weak function of NTDC,” said Nepa.

In addition, companies in Nepal failed to provide limited information about their network.

The regulatory authority then took serious notice of failure of the NTDC and instructed the system operator to speed up overloaded grid stations at a speed of 20 November 2009.

However, according to the Nepra, problems with NTDC’s network are unresolved and immediate tension will not be taken from the company if more tension is imposed in the months after July and August.

In light of such problems, NTDC is instructed to prepare and implement a plan to overload and resolve network challenges immediately.
