Expanding generation capacity only way to avoid grid failures: Tata Power MD
The only option to avoid grid failures is to expand the generating capacity, according to Anil Sardana, Managing Director, Tata Power.
Tata Power is into generation, transmission and distribution.
“There needs to be enforcement of automated and coordinated relay system as also strict governance on frequency regimes to avoid grid failures similar to the one experienced over the last few days.
“However, one cannot shy away from creating spinning reserves by expanding India’s power generation capacities so that there is no demand-supply gap at any given time,” he said.
In parallel, the management of distribution companies has to be made accountable for 24×7 reliable supply and fiscal management, he felt.
