Om­ron un­veils first-of- its-kind so­lu­tion to ad­dress crit­i­cal is­sue of power theft

Power Watch India - - DESPATCHES NATIONAL -

Om­ron, the world leader in sens­ing and con­trol tech­nolo­gies, an­nounced the launch of its In­te­grated Tam­per De­tec­tion So­lu­tion – world’s first of its kind - to ad­dress the na­tional level con­cerns of power ‘theft’ in the elec­tric­ity sec­tor in In­dia. The so­lu­tion is po­si­tioned as a rev­o­lu­tion­ary of­fer­ing for Smart En­ergy Man­age­ment.

Con­cep­tu­alised in as­so­ci­a­tion with Tata Power Delhi Dis­tri­bu­tion Limited (TPDDL), the en­deav­our is vi­su­alised as a mile­stone in en­abling the Smart Grid ini­tia­tive by the govern­ment and is also ex­pected to play a key role in shap­ing the macro ini­tia­tives of na­tional im­por­tance such as the need to chan­nelise and curb losses caused by power theft. Trans­mis­sion and dis­tri­bu­tion (T&D) losses re­main one of the ma­jor con­cerns for the power sec­tor in In­dia. As per var­ied in­dus­try re­ports, the country ranks fifth in the world in terms of in­stalled ca­pac­ity but still more than 300 mil­lion peo­ple do not have ac­cess to elec­tric­ity. This un­avail­abil­ity and in­suf­fi­ciency of elec­tric­ity has a strong link­age with the trans­mis­sion & dis­tri­bu­tion losses which amount to around 40 % of the to­tal pro­duc­tion.
