03 January 2022 Current Affairs:As part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, PowerGrid Corporation Limited commemorated the achievement of "One Nation One Grid."

Highlights:

  • India's total multi-transmission capacity is currently around 1,12,250 MW. By 2022, it is expected to increase to around 1,18,740 MW.
  • By transferring power from resource-centric regions to load-centric regions, synchronization of all provincial grids will aid in the most efficient use of natural resources. 
  • It will also result in the establishment of a thriving electricity market in India, which will facilitate power trading.
National Grid India History 
  • Grid management in India began in the 1960s on a regional basis. Grids were initially connected to form a regional grid. Going to follow this, India was divided into five grid-based regions:
  • Northern Grid
  • Eastern Grid
  • Western Grid
  • North Eastern Grid and
  • Southern region.
  • In October 1991, the North Eastern and Eastern Grids were linked. In March 2003, the Western Grid and the North Eastern Grid were linked.
  • The North and East grids were connected in 2006. As a result, four regional grids, the Northern, Eastern, Western, and North Eastern grids, were interconnected to form a single-frequency central grid.
  • With the commencement of the 765kV Raichur-Solapur Power line in 2013, the Southern Region was linked to the Central Grid.
  • With this, the goal of 'ONE NATION'-'ONE GRID'-'ONE FREQUENCY' was met.
Power Grid Corporation Of India
  • Power Grid is a statutory corporation in India that reports to the Ministry of Power. Gurugram is the company's headquarters. 
  • The company's main business is bulk power transmission across India. Around half of the entire power generated in India is transmitted through the power grid.
