BANGALORE: City energy utility BESCOM recently launched two mobile apps and deployed a software which would enable it to get an accurate reading about technical losses with a special focus on rural feeders.

The Distribution Line Simulation (DLS) software would help BESCOM get a more realistic audit of feeders in future and would also help evaluate infrastructure investments.

Managing Director Pankaj Kumar Pandey told reporters at the launch: “At present, technical and commercial losses are at 13.72 per cent and our transmission loss figures are 3.9 per cent. With this software, we can divide the losses based on category and feeder. The DLS will also help reduce manual interference in the system and software updates will continue on a daily basis without manual data entry.” The software is being licensed to BESCOM by MAD Tech Solutions and will be deployed at all sub-divisions. Initially, 62 sub-divisions and five circles will be included and this will go up to include all 115 sub-divisions.

“The staff at the sub-divisions will be provided training after which they will be able to detect losses. Then the  infrastructure needed to plug the loopholes can be planned,” Pandey said.  Two mobile phone apps, which explain the various rules related to the Indian electricity sector and list out various sections of the Indian Electricity Act, were also launched. These apps will be available initially on the Android App store.
