Mumbai: IIT-Bombay will develop analytics to provide Gujarat Electricity Transmission Corporation (Getco) real-time load data, which will help avoid a repeat of the major power breakdown of July, 2012. The analytics will help Gujarat maintain stable operation in the event of small disturbances.

"Dynamic stability analysis is necessary mainly because the grid is integrated. Any disturbance in one region can result in blackout in the other grid area as well," Getco Managing Director Surinder Negi told reporters here today.

He said IIT-Bombay is developing a system protection that will provide real-time data to the load centre, which can then take emergency control action in case of disturbances.

The state will also set up 29 phasor measuring units (PMUs) on the grid, across the state that will get the accurate time-stamped voltage and current information through the analytics.
