HPSLDC’S INTEGRATED IT SOLUTION

(HPSLDC SAMAST SAKTI 1.0)

Introduction of the HPSLDC’S INTEGRATED IT SOLUTION (HPSLDC SAMAST SAKTI 1.0)

SAMAST (Scheduling Accounting Metering and Settlement of Transactions in Electricity) is a framework that has been implemented by HPSLDC in the HP state to provide all kinds of functions such as Scheduling, Billing, Accounting, Settlement of Transactions and keeping/maintaining ledgers thereof etc. in respect of exchange of Electrical Energy between the various entities viz. OA Consumers/ Generators, HPSEBL (DISCOM) and the Govt. of HP. This is done to ensure integrated operation of the power system in the State.

HPSLDC would be responsible for the following functions as per the provisions of Indian Electricity Grid Code, HP State Grid Code and regulations of CERC and CEA and other notifications:

Optimum scheduling and dispatch of electricity within the State.

Re-scheduling of dispatch and drawl schedules as per system conditions and request of Generating Stations and Distribution Licensees

Monitoring of grid operations.

System operation and control covering contingency analysis and operational planning on a real time basis

Keeping a record of the quantity of electricity transmitted through the State Power Grid.

Supervision and control over the Intra-State Transmission System.

Carrying out real time operations for grid control and dispatch of electricity within the State through secure and economic operation of the State Power Grid.

Specifying Metering points and data collection

Compiling and furnishing data pertaining to system operation

Operation of State UI pool account and State reactive energy account

This software is user friendly, quick to learn and a reliable one for the above purpose. It is intended to be a standalone product and is not dependent on the availability of other software. It runs on both UNIX and Windows based platform.
