In order to meet above objective, Ministry of Power, GoI has introduced a scheme namely “11 kV Rural Feeder Monitoring Scheme” and appointed REC Transmission Projects Company Limited as Implementing Agency for the same.
Under the Scheme, rural feeders meter data shall be acquired through modem and shall be send to central MDAS for further analysis and the same shall be integrated with National Power Porta (NPP) to make it available for use of all stake holders.
To develop a Self-sustained independent web based system for automated 11 kV Rural Feeder Monitoring System through Data Logging of various essential parameters of all the Outgoing 11kV rural feeders from 66, 33/11 kV sub stations installed in the Sub-Station and make the information available online for various stake holders including public portal , on real time basis for power supply monitoring, alerts, meter data analysis, information dissemination and energy audit.
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.
The System would further facilitate consolidation of various parameters downloaded from the meters installed on the feeders into a common database thus enabling generation of various holistic MIS reports for analysis and actions.
In order to achieve above objectives, it is essential to have proper metering infrastructure along with Data storage & forwarding device for all the 11 kV feeders and Meter Data Acquisition System (MDAS)
