India very likely to become
THE crucial market for IEC 61850

The International Workshop on IEC 61850
in Bangalore (April 25-28, 2006)
was an unforgettable event

"THE HINDU news paper reports on the event:

"... The power sector in the country [India] is making big strides and has successfully adopted international standards, according to Central Electricity Authority Chairman Rakesh Nath. He was speaking after inaugurating a four-day international workshop and training programme on "IEC 61850 - communication networks and systems in substations and inter-operability demonstration".

He said the country had an installed capacity of 1,24,000 MW. Power shortage was around eight to nine per cent, while peak shortage was around 12 per cent. By the end of the 10th Plan (2002-07), an additional 32,000 MW capacity would be added, while 60,000 MW would be added during the 11th Plan to meet the increasing demand, he said.

R.N. Nayak, Executive Director, Power Grid Corporation of India, who presided over the function, said that over the past year 100 substations of 400 kV capacity had been set up. By February 2007, the first 800-kV substation in the country would be in place.

"We have to plan and implement a system that requires less manpower, which is why automation of substations is essential. More unmanned stations will have to be set up," he said. Mr. Nayak also said that data acquisition systems have to be put in place in the substations for accurate monitoring, correct data reading and protection. ..."
