Other Schemes/ initiates
Urja Mitra is a distribution sector reform, being implemented through your Company’s subsidiary RECTPCL under guidance of Ministry of Power. Urja Mitra is a first of its kind application which provides a Central Outage Management and Notification Platform (Web-Portal www.urjamitra.com as well as Mobile App) for State Power Distribution utilities to disseminate Power Outage information to urban / rural power consumers across India through SMS/email/push notifications. Power Consumers across the nation get outage update through integrated Mobile Application for Android and iOS platforms-prior intimation of expected duration and cause of scheduled power outages and post fault intimation of unscheduled power outages duration. It also provides a platform to view real time power outages in any part of the Country, lodge a complaint on power outages. The Stakeholder connect is ensured by providing for vernacular mobile apps, which can be used by field staff to trigger power outage information/view ongoing outages/take corrective action on outage complaints etc.
As on June 2020, data of around 22.06 crore consumers of 52 DISCOMs of 29 states is uploaded into the application and till date 279.37 crore SMS have been sent to the consumers.
11 kV Rural Feeder Monitoring Scheme
To get a complete picture of the entire distribution network in country and to ensure achievement of “24x7 Power for All” vision of Government of India, it was felt essential to capture real time supply parameters of rural India and this could be achieved by monitoring the availability/quality of power supply in rural areas of the country recording actual distribution parameters i.e. Power supply, outages and by conducting feeder wise energy audit and AT&C losses calculation.
In order to meet the above objective, Ministry of Power, Government of India has introduced “11 kV Rural Feeder Monitoring Scheme” under the Distribution Sector Reforms and has appointed REC Transmission Projects Company Limited as Implementing Agency for the same. Under the Scheme, meter data of rural feeders is sent to central Meter Data Acquisition System (MDAS) for analysis and the same is then integrated with National Power Portal (NPP) to make it available for use of all stakeholders.
This scheme targets to develop a self-sustained, independent, web based automated system for almost 1.1 Lakh rural and agricultural feeders across country by acquiring various essential parameters of all the outgoing 11kV rural feeders & such 66/33 kV incoming feeders from where 11kV rural feeders are emanating and making the information available online for all stakeholders. As on June 2020, 79,000 Modems have been installed and integrated with National Power Portal.
The System would help for monitoring power supply, proper planning, decision support and taking corrective actions on the business activities in addition to transparently disseminating the power supply status. It would further facilitate consolidation of various parameters downloaded from the meters installed on the feeders into a common database thus enabling generation of various MIS reports for analysis and actions.
