HVDS Schemes:High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS) have been adopted in all the districts of APEPDCL for achieving reliable power supply on rural feeders especially to agricultural consumers, for reducing line losses, reducing DTR failures and better consumer servicing. High Voltage Distribution System (HVDS) is being implemented in APEPDCL in a phased manner.
DDG under RGGVY Scheme:
The Decentralized Distribution Generation (DDG) under RGGVY Scheme can be from conventional or renewable sources such as Biomass, Biofuels, Biogas, Mini Hydro, Solar etc. for villages where grid connectivity is either not feasible or not cost effective and having population more than 100 Nos. Rural Electrification Corporation (REC) Limited would be the Nodal Agency for the Scheme. As per RGGVY Guidelines, 90% of project cost (capital subsidy) as a grant from MoP, GoI through REC and balance 10% of project cost (Loan component) as a loan from REC.
33 KV Interlinking Lines:
Erection of new 33 KV feeders / interlinking lines are taken up to separate the 33/11 KV Substations currently being fed from the 33 KV feeders feeding more than 3 Nos. substations and also for providing of alternate source of power supply for the substations not having alternate source. These works are implemented in Phased manner under own funds.
24 Hrs. Power supply to Substation Head Quarters:
To maintain uninterrupted and better quality of power supply to non agricultural loads and to better control on agricultural loads and improved load management.
600 KVAR Auto Switched Line Capacitors to Agl. Feeders:
To improve system power factor particularly agricultural predominant loads and helping to correct the voltage regulation problems and reduction of system losses etc. APEPDCL has taken up the said project with an agreement value of Rs.10.198 Crores for 184 nos. 11KV Agricultural feeders (9 nos. in Srikakulam, 6 nos. in Vizianagaram, 10 nos. in Visakhapatnam, 38 nos. in Rajahmundry and 121 nos. in Eluru).
Scheduled Caste Sub-Plan & Tribal Sub-Plan:
Govt. of A.P. enacted Scheduled Caste Sub-Plan & Tribal Sub-Plan (Planning, Allocation and Utilization of financial Resources) Act, 2013. The main objective is to bridge the gaps in the development indicators between SC/ST sections and socially advanced sections. The Act envisages that schemes included in SCSP/TSP should secure director and quantifiable benefits to Scheduled Tribe individuals or Scheduled Tribe households or Schedules Tribe Habitations and should bridge the gaps in development indicators between SCs/STs, when compared to state averages.
During FY 2013-14, there are 94 nos. SC Colonies (2 nos. in Srikakulam, 1 no. in Vizianagaram, 6 nos. in Visakhapatnam, 33 nos. in Rajahmundry and 52 nos. in Eluru) were identified for electrification with an estimated cost of Rs.2.300 Crores.
During FY 2013-14, there are 139 nos. Tribal Habitations (40 nos. in Srikakulam, 14 nos. in Vizianagaram, 66 nos. in Visakhapatnam, 12 nos. in Rajahmundry and 7 nos. in Eluru) were identified for electrification with an estimated cost of Rs.8.170 Cores.
