Critical Transmission Investment Plan for Uttar Pradesh

  1. Project Implementation Plan

Strengthening of Transmission Network in the State of Uttar Pradesh is long over due. As per reports of Planning Wing of UPPCL, and investment of about Rs. 37100 Million is needed to cover requirements up to the year 2009. Arranging finances of this magnitude is going to be very difficult. Moreover implementation of such huge task shall also take lot of time It has therefore been decided that presently only very critical lines, substations and other works may be taken up. For this purpose Network studies were got carried and based on that and Investment Plan has been prepared and submitted to the World Bank.

  1. Organization :

Transmission wing of UPPCL is headed by Director (Transmission). Design, Planning and Procurement work is done centrally by a separate unit headed by and officer of the level of General Manger (Transmission Design). With a view to have better control, Design, Planning and Procurement of externally aided projects, will be done by a separate unit headed by an officer of the level of General Manger. Execution of projects and maintenance of Transmission lines and substations is looked after by a separate organization headed by a General Manager (Transmission). Uttar Pradesh is divided for this purpose in three transmission zones, namely -West Central and East. Each transmission zone is headed by a General Managers have Deputy General Mangers and Executive Engineers who are directly responsible for execution of the projects under the jurisdiction of respective Transmission Divisions. Civil works are carried out under direct supervision of Executive Engineer, Electricity. Civil Construction Divisions. These Executive Engineers work under Deputy General Manager (Civil) and General Manager (Civil).

Keeping in view the magnitude of work involved for completion of proposed works, it has been decided that present execution setup will be strengthened by creating units of :-

  1. Executive Engineer, Electricity 400 kV S/S Construction Division, Muzaffarnagar for erection and commissioning of Muzaffarnagar S/S.

  2. Executive Engineer, Electricity Transmission Division-III, Lucknow for construction fo Hardoi Rd. S/S.

  3. A subdivision under Executive Engineer, Electricity Civil Construction Division,- Roorkee for civil works of 400 kV Muzaffarnagar S/S.

For other proposed works existing administrative set up is sufficient to carry out required works.

  1. Financing :

The Schemes for investment in the short term investment plan have been Selected on following criteria :-

  1. Load flow studies carried out by UPPCL,

  2. Design & Planning Criteria adopted by UPPCL,

  3. Dovetailing of works with distribution wing in respect of Ghaziabad, Allahabad and Lucknow districts.

The details of Load Flow studies and various proposed works are given in Critical Transmission Investment Plan.

Estimated Cost of various works are as follows:-

UPPCl's Share of Rs. 658.31 Million will be met through UPPCL's internal resources.

  1. Benefits of Investment Plan

UPPCL's have carried out computer Based Load Flow Studies based on March 2002 load conditions. Based on these studies an investment plan for critical transmission works has been prepared for a total estimated cost of Rs. 261.162 Millions, as detailed above.

The cost of replacement and maintenance proposals are in respect of replacement of old and obsolete PLCC equipments and old existing 220 kV substations. The fund required for this work would be Rs. 302.927 Million. It is essential to replace damaged/obsolete and worn out equipments of the 220 kV substations commissioned more than 20 years ago to ensure continuity and reliability of supply. The fund required for R&M of 8 Nos. existing 220 kV substations is less than 10% of the total cost of such new substations. Thus with small investment we can make all these substations also involve hassles of forest clearance and problems of right of way. By investing in the R&M we can do away with setting up of many new lines and substations. Undoubtedly, the cost incurred under R&M is essential for reliability and quality of supply and is very much justified.

Benefits :-

On completion of 400kv Muzaffarnagar package, for evacuation of energy form Tehri PS, additional 993 MU energy will be available for sale from Tehri PS which has been calculated taking 340 MW (UP's Share) generation for 8 hours form Tehri P.S. This amounts to Rs. 1619 Million @ Rs. 1.63 per unit.

On Completion of proposed projects of transmission lines & substations alongwith provision of additional capacitor Banks, the system losses shall reduce by 46 MW. This will result in following benefits.

  1. Setting up of Generating station of 52 MW capacity will be avoided (46 MW + 10% Aux Supply + 3% transmission losses)

Cost saved & 50 Million per MW = 52~50 = @s. 2600 Million

This excludes cost of O&M and fuel etc. which shall be incurred if gererating station is set up.

  1. Additional Energy supplied during peak hours (3 hours per day) = 24.503 MU

Which was earlier not possible due to overloading of T/F Equivalent to = Rs. 40 Million

Cost Benefit Analysis is as follows :

Additional evacuation of energy on completion of Muzaffarnagar 400 kV S/S

-Additional sale of energy, during peak hours (3 hours per day due to increase in Transformation Capacity)
