India's Power Grid and divisions UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • Amid the longest spell of heatwaves in the past 15 years, the power demand in North India surged to 89 GW (89,000 MW) on Monday, the highest ever for a single day

  • To meet this demand, nearly 25% to 30% of power had to be “imported” from outside the region, the Power Ministry said

Power Grid and divisions

  • The electric grid of India, also known as the National Grid, is a high-voltage electricity transmission network that connects power stations and major substations across the country

  • It ensures that electricity generated anywhere in India can be used to satisfy demand elsewhere.

  • The National Grid is owned and maintained by the state-owned Power Grid Corporation of India and operated by the state-owned Power System Operation Corporation

  • It is one of the largest operational synchronous grids in the world

  • India’s power grid is divided into five regions: north, south, west, east, and northeast.

  • As of data available on March 31, the northern region accounts for 113 GW or about 25% of India’s total installed power capacity of 442 GW.
