August 3, 2017- Workshop Automatic Generation Control Pilot in the Southern Region

USAID’s GTG-RISE Initiative, in partnership with Power System Operator Corporation (POSOCO), Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited (KPTCL) and Karnataka Power Corporation Limited (KPCL), organized a workshop on “Automatic Generation Control (AGC) Pilot – Southern Region” in Bengaluru on August 3, 2017. More than 50 participants representing key stakeholders from KPCL, KPTCL, Karnataka Electricity Regulatory Commission (KERC) and Southern Regional Load Despatch Centre (SRLDC) participated and deliberated on evaluating AGC in providing secondary response in Southern India. The workshop provided insights for the planned adoption of AGC for ancillary market operation in the country. GTG-RISE pilot to be implemented over 2 years will cover both conventional and renewable power plants and will identify the technical requirements as well as compensation mechanism for the generating units to participate in AGC secondary reserve.
