Power Outage in Visakhapatnam

Power Outage
Power Outage Vizag

Visakhapatnam experienced a power outage yesterday as most of you must’ve noticed. The outage had left Vizagites inconvenienced, no thanks to the rising temperatures in the city. A technical snag has been blamed for the loss in power supply that lasted on and off for the whole day.

Due to a technical snag at the AP TRANSCO sub-station, power supply was interrupted in some places of Visakhapatnam. At 10:50 AM, the supply was interrupted as a conductor line was cut off and a technical problem arose at the Sileru and Pendurthi line too. The AP TRANSCO authorities worked continuously for the speedy restoration of power supply.

Power shortage or any other glitch cannot be reportedly blamed for the outage yesterday. It was only be attributed to a technical failure in the supply. There was no power supply in many areas in the city with the power coming through with many interruptions. It was only in the evening that power supply was completely restored to some areas.

Due to the power interruption, the supply timings of agricultural pumpsets in the APEPDCL jurisdiction have been altered. For one week, there will be changes in the time of power supply. Consumers can always call the toll-free number 1912 if further problems arise.

  1. I AM SORRY TO INFORM 1912 OF APEPDCL ON 19th MAY 2017,DID NOT WORK WHEN THERE WAS NO POWER AT 8PM TO REGISTER A COMPLAINT. MOST OF THE TIMES ESPECIALLY 1912 WON’T RESPOND FOR THE RESCUE OF CONSUMERS IN THE EVENINGS .

  2. Hope Smart City project has some steps to overcome these long pwer outages. There are ways to isolate network on these kind of fault quickly and restore from other paths. I remember we did this kind of thing for Jaipur city in 1998 as CMC Ltd Power SCADA R&D .

    Second part agricultural pump sheds.
    If all pumps were ON at a time from same feeder . It will create a problem . For this also there was R&D project given by DOE Department of Electronics to CMCltd in 1999.

    These are all we have to use in Vijag Smart City Project.
