Alstom T&D India has been selected to lead the smart grid project by Himachal Pradesh State Electricity Board Ltd, the company said in a statement on Tuesday.

The project is located at the Kala Amb industrial area in the State and serves over 1,500 consumers.

“This will be the second out of 14 projects under the Indian Ministry of Power’s flagship ‘Smart Grid Pilo’ programme. The Kala Amb smart grid pilot project will act as a proof of concept to further strengthen the information technology system in place, to make the distribution grid cost-effective, responsive and better engineered for reliability and self-healing operations,” the statement added.

As part of the project, the company will design, develop and implement an integrated set of smart grid applications targeting power quality issues, managing peak demand, power outages and limiting the violations at distribution network nodes.

Alstom’s solution will be based on its e-terradistribution 3.0, a fully Integrated Distribution Management System (IDMS).

“Over the last 15 years, the company has been delivering large-scale smart gird projects for India’s national grid through Power Grid Corporation of India Ltd (PowerGrid). In addition, the company has delivered several distribution projects for the state distribution system operators,” said Rathin Basu, Managing Director, Alstom T&D India.

The smart grid solution will collect data from a new installed smart metering infrastructure and grid sensors, including power transformer condition monitoring.

“The platform will seamlessly exchange the business analytics with the existing utility consumer portal and enable the state regulator to make suitable adjustments in tariff and other regulations,” the statement added.
