DISCOs and NPCC for the first time have near real time coincident demand information to monitor and maintain planned load shedding schedules and avoid forced load shedding situations.
DISCO Control Centers are able to monitor and control their adherence to the planned load shedding targets in near real time, thus staying in the NPCC allocated quota reducing the incidence of NPCC forced load shedding meaning improved customer satisfaction.
NPCC has a visibility over this improved DISCO implementation of planned load shedding.
Historical database of full profile performance is available for analysis of system performance and improved operations.
