    20. Long-term plan (10-15 years) CEA • inter/intra state transmission system • continuously updated to reflectload projections and generation scenarios • NEP • Avoid congestion Planning Philosophy (3.4) Annual plan (5 year forward term) CTU • Identification of major inter state/regional lines including system strengthening schemes • Planning schemes shall also consider: CEA’s: • Long-term perspective plan • Electric Power Survey of India report • Transmission Planning Criteria and guidelines • RPC Feedback • NLDC/RLDC/SLDC feedback • CERC Regulations • Renewable capacity addition (MNRES)

    21. Planning philosophy (contd...) • System strengthening schemes by CTU: • shall be done in consultation with CEA’sStanding Committee for Transmission System Planning: • Planning • On the basis of PPA • No PPA/ no consensus – CTU may approach CERC in accordance with CERC (Grant of Regulatory approval for Capital Investment to CTU for execution of ISTS) • Planning data: • submission by STUs/Users to CTU:

    22. Planning philosophy (contd...) • Voltage management by: • capacitors, reactors, SVC and FACTs • similar exercise by STU • STU shall plan to evacuate power from ISTS • ISTS & intra-state transmission systems are complementary & interdependent • If LTA Applications require strengthening of intra-state transmission system – applicant shall coordinate with STU

    23. Planning Criterion (3.5) Planning criterion ISTS’s security philosophyCEA guidelines a) Without load shedding or rescheduling of generation, ISTS shall withstand and secure against the following outages: • a 132 KV D/C line, a 220 KV /DC line, • a 400 KV S/C line, 765 KV S/C line • single Inter-Connecting Transformer (ICT ) • one pole of HVDC Bi-pole • Outage of 765 kV S/C line Without load shedding but could be with rescheduling of generation, ISTS shall withstand and secure against the following outages: • a 400 KV D/C line • a 400 KV S/C line with TCSC • both pole of HVDC Bi-pole line • Outage of 765 KV S/C line with series compensation

    24. Planning Criterion (3.5) b) ISTS shall withstand the loss of most severe single system infeed without loss of stability c) Any one of the events defined above should not cause: loss of supply prolonged operation of frequency below and above limits unacceptable high or low voltage system instability unacceptable overloading of ISTS elements 24

    25. Planning Data & Implementation d)All S/S (132 kV & above) shall have at least two transformers e)CTU will carry out reactive power compensation requirement of ISTS & at ISGS’ switchyard f)SPS may be planned by NLDC/RLDC in consultation with CEA, CTU, RPC & Regional entities – for enhancing transfer capability or to take care of additional contingencies

    34. 5. Operating Code

    35. Operating philosophy (5.1) • objective of the integrated operation: • enhance overall operational reliability and economy • Cooperate and adopt Good Utility Practice • NLDC: • overall operation of National/Inter-Regional Grid • develop/maintain detailed internal operating procedures for national grid • RLDC: • overall operation of Regional Grid • develop/maintain detailed internal operating procedures for regional grid

    36. Operating philosophy (5.1) SLDC: develop/maintain detailed internal operating procedures for State grid All licensee, generating company, generating station and any other concerned person: comply with directions of RLDC/SLDC e) round-the clock manning by qualified and trained personnel of: control rooms of NLDC, RLDC, SLDC, Power Plant, Sub Stations (132 kV & above) control centres of all regional constituents 36

    37. System Security Aspects (5.2) • Synchronism: • all Users, CTU & STU • operate their power systems/stations in an integrated manner • No deliberate isolation of part of the grid: • except under emergency • safety of human/equipment • when instructed by RLDC • restoration to be supervised by RLDC in coordination with NLDC/SLDC

    38. System Security Aspects (5.2) Important elements list at RLDC: not removed without RLDC’s consent or prior consent when specifically instructed list of important elements to be prepared and shall be put on website of NLDC/RLDC/SLDC emergency removal intimated to RLDC tripping, reason, likely time of restoration intimated to RLDC say within 10 minutes Important elements tripping to be informed to NLDC by RLDC Prolonged outage ------ sub-optimal operation----monitored by RLDC------report to RPC-------- finalise action plan for restoration 38

    39. Restricted Governor Action (5.2(f)) • Thermal generating > 200 MW and hydro units > 10 MW on RGMO wef 01.08.2010 • Gas Units, Combined Cycle, wind, solar & nuclear exempted till CERC reviews • When frequency stabilise at 50.0 Hz FGMO would be intoduced • RGMO • For Frequency < 50.2 Hz no reduction in generation when frequency rises • Any fall in frequency generation should increase by 5% limited to 105% of MCR (thermal), 110% MCR (Hydro) • After increase in generation, the unit mey ramp back to original level at a rate of 1% per minute • At Frequency < 49.7 Hz ramp up could be at higher rate • governors: 3% - 6% droop • any exception: reason & duration to RLDC

    40. System Security Aspects 5.2 (s) 40

    41. DEMAND ESTIMATION FOR OPERARTIONAL PURPOSES Inform to RLDC/ RPC Wind Energy Forecast ATC/ TTC By 01.01.2011 – online estimation of demand for each 15 min block 41

    42. Demand Management(5.4) • SLDCs shall control demand in the event of: • insufficient generating capacity/inadequate external transfer • breakdown/congestion problems • Demand disconnection • frequency: • below 49.7 Hz: shall initiate action to restrict their net drawal • below 49.5 Hz: requisite load shedding • Each User/STU/SLDC shall formulate contingency procedures and make arrangements. Contingency Procedure to be regularly updated and monitored by SLDC/RLDC • SLDC through respective SEBs/Discoms shall formulate and implement state-of-the-art demand management schemes- roatational load shedding/demand response (which may include lower tariff for interruptible load) etc. SLDC to furnish periodic report to CERC.

    43. Demand Management(5.4.2(e)(f)(g)(h)) Interruptible load in four groups: Scheduled load shedding/power cuts Unscheduled load shedding UFR/df/dt loads SPS loads RLDC may direct to decrease drawal in contingency---SLDCto send compliance report SLDC may direct SEB/Discom/bulk consumer to curtail drawal and monitor RLDC shall devise standard, instantaneous, message formats Congestion – requisite load shedding or generation backing down . Implementation as per CERC ( Measures to relieve congestion in real time operation), Regulations, 2009 43

    44. weekly report by NLDC (put on website): Performance of national/integrated grid daily report by RLDC (put on website): Performance of national/integrated grid Wind power injection quarterly report by RLDC : system constraints, reasons for not meeting the requirements, security standards & quality of service actions taken by different persons persons responsible for causing the constraints weekly report by RLDC (put on website): Frequency and voltage profiles Major generation & transmission outages Transmission constraints Instances of persistent/significant non-compliance of IEGC Instances of congestion Instance of inordinate delay in restoration Non-compliance of instructions of SLDCs by SEB/Discom RLDC shall provide information/report to RPC for smooth operation of ISTS Periodic Reports (5.5) 44

    45. Operational Liaison (5.6) • Introduction a) requirements for the exchange of information in relation to Operations/Events on the total grid system which have had or will have an effect on: • National grid • the regional grid • the ISTS in the region • the system of a User/STU (the above generally relates to notifying of what is expected to happen or has happened and not the reasons why) b)Operational liaison function is a mandatory built-in hierarchical function of the NLDC/RLDC/SLDC/Users to facilitate quick transfer of information to operational staff

    46. Procedure for Operational Liaison • Procedure for Operational Liaison a) Operations and event on the regional grid • before carrying out any operation, RLDC will inform User/SLDC/CTU whose system will be affected • immediately following an event, RLDC will inform the User/SLDC/CTU with details of what happened but not the reasons why • RLDC to NLDC if other region is going to be affected • immediately following an event, NLDC would keep all RLDCs informed b) Operations and events on a User/STU system • before carrying out any operation that will affect regional grid, constituent shall inform RLDC with details • RLDC to NLDC if other region is going to be affected • immediately following an event, the User/SLDC shall inform RLDC with details but not the reasons why • immediately following an event, NLDC would keep all RLDCs informed • Prolonged Forced outages – monitored at RPC level. RPC shall send a monthly report to CERC

    47. Outage Planning (5.7) Introduction a) procedures for preparation of outage schedules for the elements of the National/Regional in a coordinated and optimal manner and the balance of generation and demand b) generation output and transmission system should be adequate after taking outages into account to achieve security standards c) annual outage plan for the financial year shall be prepared by RPC Secretariat and reviewed during the quaterly and monthly basis. ROR, wind & solar power to be extracted to maximum

    48. proposed outage programmes by all concerned (30th Nov) draft outage programme by RPC Secretariat (31st Dec) final outage programme by (31st Jan) monthly review quarterly review next financial year Nov Dec Jan Feb Mar Review by RPC Secretariat: adjustments made wherever found to be necessary in coordination with all parties concerned Outage Planning Process

    49. Outage Planning (5.7.4) In consultation with NLDC/RLDC In Emergency – RLDCs may conduct studies before clearance NLDC/RLDC are authorized to defer - grid disturbance - system isolation - partial black out in a state - any other critical event Latest detailed outage plan – updated Each user, CTU and STU shall obtain one final approval from RLDC RPC shall submit quarterly, half yearly reports to CERC indicating deviations 49

    50. Recovery Procedures (5.8) Detailed plans/procedures for restoration of partial/total blackout regional grid develops RLDC consultations reviewed/updated annually Concerned Constituents RPC secretariat develop • Mock trials once every 6 months • DG sets to be tested on weekly basis- quarterly report to be sent to RLDC Detailed plans/procedures for restoration of partial/total blackout reviewed/updated annually
