  1. At the heart of the system, the actual demand and energy pull are chronicled at a multitude of EHT Sub-stations, all converging at the State Load Dispatch Centre. It's here that the symphony of energy needs and use sings its loudest.
  2. Then there's the pulse of the power grid, with supply status and interruptions recorded across various 33/11 KV Sub-stations. It's a real-time snapshot of energy flow and the hiccups that might occur along the way.
  3. Lastly, the human touch: Scheduled outages and predicted restoration times aren't just automated guesses. They are thoughtfully updated by territorial DISCOM officers who know the terrain, understand the network, and guide the flow of information.

Structure of the application

  1. DISCOM Details: Think of it as a living timeline, with scheduled data, real-time values, demand, shortages in MW and MU, not just for today but mirrored with yesterday's data for the same period. This is a dynamic tapestry that weaves itself anew every 5 minutes.
  2. State Network Need & Frequency: Alongside this, there's a pulse readout of the entire state's network demand and frequency. It's the vital sign of the region's energy body, providing a constant monitor of the flow of power.
  3. Peak Demand Insights: Look back at yesterday, and you’ll find a record of the crescendo, detailing maximum demand (MW), energy consumption (MU), and any potential shortages. It’s a reflection, a memory recorded to provide perspective and understanding.

It's not just a page; it's a control panel, a dashboard of energy life, and an insight window that keeps its fingers on the pulse of the region's energy dynamics. Whether you are a casual observer or a power professional, the "AP State page" offers you a seat at the command center.

  1. Regional Supplies Extended: A time-lapse of how the 11KV feeders are nourished, each hour counted and displayed, like celestial bodies in motion.
  2. A Record of Peaks and Valleys: The highs of maximum demand (MW), the ebb and flow of energy consumption (MU), and the shadows of potential shortages from yesterday are all charted out, like constellations in the energy night sky.
  3. Technical Parameters Mapped: The measured sale, T&D losses, and the combined technical and commercial losses (AT&C) for both the previous month and the entire fiscal year are plotted out like intricate orbits.
  4. Reliability Indices, the North Stars: SAIDI (average duration/customer), SAIFI (interruption numbers/customer), and CAIDI (interruption duration/interruption) stand like guiding stars, offering insight into the energy landscape's dependability.

  1. Extension of Supplies on a Grand Scale: The 11KV feeders, with their hours meticulously catalogued, form a living tapestry, each strand telling a tale of energy nourishment across the region.
  2. Peaks of Yesterday: The maximum demand (MW), energy draw (MU), and possible shortages from the day before are sculpted into a landscape, each peak and valley a testament to the energy dynamics of the land.
  3. Technical Parameters, the Clockwork: Measured sales, T&D losses, and cumulative AT&C losses both monthly and annually are laid out like intricate gears and cogs of a giant energy machine, revealing the inner workings of the system.
  4. Reliability Indices, the Guardians: SAIDI, SAIFI, and CAIDI stand tall like sentinels, representing the average time, number of interruptions, and duration per interruption, ensuring the land's energy stability.
  5. Power Interruptions, the Chronicles: A rich library filled with detailed scrolls, documenting every interruption in any given locality, for today and yesterday. It's a living history, chronicling the heartbeat and occasional stumbles of the power supply.

  1. Substation Nameplate: Gazing at the centerpiece, a gleaming plaque reveals the 33/11KV substation that powers the mandal or village, the very heart that fuels the community.
  2. Feeder Identification Banner: Stretching across the sky, a banner names the 11KV feeder connecting life's energy to the mandal or village, like main roads that bring vitality to every corner.
  3. Feeder Types, the Crossroads: A series of signposts stand tall, marking the different feeder types—City, MHQ, Agriculture, Mixed—each a pathway catering to unique needs and destinations.
  4. Yesterday's Extended Hours, the Sundial: A sundial, etched with the extended supply hours of the previous day, clicks with detailed interruption information, like shadows marking the rhythms of the past.
  5. Today's Hours, the Flowing Timepiece: A water clock, filled with the hours extended till now, flows with insights into potential interruptions, ever-changing and alive like the present moment.

Technical terms

Think of Maximum Demand as the highest note in a symphony of electricity. For the selected unit (be it DISCOM or District), it's the peak power drawn in MW. It's the crescendo in a day-long performance, the moment that defines the energy appetite of the entire day.

Imagine a vast reservoir of electricity, and Energy Drawls are how much the respective unit sips from this reservoir in Million Units. It's akin to pouring liquid energy, where 100MW for 24 Hrs equals 2.4 MU (Million Units), filling the needs of the community like water nourishing a garden.

SAIDI, or System Average Interruption Duration Index, is a watchful guardian of reliability. It's the average outage duration for each customer served, measured in units of time (minutes or hours). Think of SAIDI as the gentle ticking of a clock, tracking AP Discoms' daily performance.

System Average Interruption Frequency Index (SAIFI) acts as a unique tally mark for interruptions. It's the heartbeat of the power supply, registering each pause and resumption, calculating the average number of interruptions per customer. For AP Discoms, it's a daily pulse check, a rhythm of reliability.

CAIDI, or Customer Average Interruption Duration Index, is the nurturing force in the energy world. It calculates the average time required to restore power, like a healer mending an energy wound. It's the comforting embrace that assures you power will return soon, measured in minutes by AP Discoms.
