  • One way communication – consumer – meter read. Transformers and cables – no real time information; consumption – no real time information
  • Meter at homes are not meters but switches which can be disconnected or heavy loads can be shut down. They will provide pricing at that hour. So you can schedule heavy loads for different times.Devices will have to communicated with. They can talk to each other. IN other words- devices will be computer like.

    1. 1. Towards Smarter Grid<br />NDMC<br />
    2. 2. Overview of NDMC<br /> Introduction<br />New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) was established by the New Delhi Municipal Council Act, 1994. With responsibility over an area of 42.74 square kilometres, NDMC is smallest among the three local bodies in National Capital Territory of Delhi (NCT); <br />Municipal Corporation of Delhi (1397.3 and Delhi Cantonment Board (43 sq. km) being the other two. <br />The NDMC area comprises the territory that has been described as Lutyen‟s Delhi and has historically come to be regarded as the seat of central authority in the Union of India. <br />This area includes the seat of the Central Government, RashtrapatiBhavan, the Prime Minister’s office and residence, Central Government offices, Foreign Missions, residences of Ministers, Members of Parliament, Diplomats and Central Government employees. <br />The Government of India is nearly the sole landowner and owns about 80 per cent of the buildings in the NDMC area. Private ownership of property in this area is marginal. In view of this unique setup, the area under NDMC has special characteristics, vulnerabilities, and requirements from security point of view.<br />

    4. 4. Electricity – need to use and manage wisely<br />Preferred form of energy<br />Quality and reliability issues are now important<br />In view of rising concerns for environment a shift is sweeping the transmission and distribution sectors<br />It is important to reduce consumption of fossil fuel electricity and encourage use of alternative energy sources<br />Need to improve efficiency of the grid using IT<br />
    5. 5. Today's GRID<br />Fragmented and Compartmentalized<br />One way communication<br />Concentrated generation<br />Utility Centric<br />Carbon intensive<br />
    6. 6. Future Smart Grid<br />Highly interconnected and integrated<br />Two way communication<br />Distributed generation<br />Consumer centric<br />Cleaner and Greener<br />Peak load management using differential pricing<br />

    22. 22. Energy Conservation and Efficiency<br />NDMC is implementing energy conservation and efficiency measures throughout its distribution area with focus on the following.<br />1. Energy efficient LED lighting fixtures for public lighting systems<br />2. Installation of solar water-heating systems at NDMC buildings, hospitals, and flats<br />3. Promotion of usage of energy-efficient appliances among NDMC consumers<br />
