System Operation:
Despite increase in number of consumers, peak demand has shown a declining trend over the period. With change in tariff structure from ‘contracted load basis’ to ‘consumption basis’, there is growing consciousness amongst the consumers for energy efficient practices/devices such as CFLs. Intensive vigilance efforts to detect line theft and increased efforts by TSECL for system improvement has also contributed to this decline. The existing level of peak demand is expected to continue with increasing efforts of TSECL for improving system efficiencies and detecting life theft.
