For catering to the surged demand for electricity during the summer season, the National Transmission and Despatch Company Ltd (NTDC) is all set to overcome the system constraints on identified 500kV and 220kV grid stations throughout the nation.
The company said in a statement that a 250 MVA transformer has been added in the 220 kV Ghazi Grid station. The statement further mentioned that the addition would end the overloading of the system and would offer the uninterrupted power supply to LESCO consumers with improved voltage level.
NTDC has also formed a System Constraints Removal Plan envisaged in 3 phases. In the first phase, a 450 MVA transformer has been added and energized at 500 kV Jamshoro grid stations in Jan 2020 to overcome the overloading of the system during minimum power generation of wind power plants (WPPs).
The spokesman of NTDC said that the augmentation work on 500 kV Bhikki New Lahore Transmission line, 220 kV Ravi-Lahore transmission and 220 kV Ravi-Shalamar transmission line is also in development which would reach completion in the shortest span of time.
