Tiruchi, April 10:

Narendra Singh, President, The Institution of Engineers (India) congratulated the power engineers of the Country working in National Load Despatch Centre, State Load Despatch Centres, Power Grid, DISCOMs, Transmission Utilities, NTPC, NHPC, SJVNL, THDC, IPPs etc. who rose to the occasion to meet this unprecedented challenge and managed the National Grid operations successfully, maintaining the power system parameters during the ‘lights switch off’ event on April 5.

Heeding to the call of Prime Minister Modi, about 23 crore consumers , 18 crore rural households and 5 crore urban households,, at 9 PM voluntarily switched off their lights for 9 minutes, which resulted in major load fluctuation due to large reduction of power within few minutes and then sudden recovery after 9 minutes, it really called for extremely careful planning and power management at the generation end as well as in the Transmission and Distribution elements.
