Rural networks inherited by NPCL and subsequently expanded to widen the scope of supply was in line with European practices characterized by long low tension (LT) network fed from an 11/0.4 kV transformer. Even for supplying to widely dispersed load blocks of agricultural pumps, similar LT network arrangement was adopted resulting in an unsatisfactory situation stemming from factors like:
Against this backdrop, high voltage distribution system (HVDS) was conceived in NPCL as a means to curb the menace of pilferage of energy, reduce peak power loss, improve voltage profile and enhance reliability of supply arrangement.
