The Kerala power system recorded a maximum peak demand of 3602 MW on 26.3.2015, where as the morning demand rose to 3072 MW on 6.04.2015. The daily consumption of the state reached a maximum of 70.99 MU on 26.3.2015. A notable change in the load pattern of the Kerala power system is the flattening of the load curve during the recent years.
The system operation wing was able to manage the grid without load shedding since June 2013 through meticulous planning and effective management of the system even on the face of increasing power prices and while the rest of the country was reeling under severe power cuts. This was achieved by exploring market opportunities and also through efficient utilization of the hydro resources.
Apart from the effective management of the system, the system operation wing performs other functions such as the SCADA up gradation project, modernization of the protection system of EHT Substations, Routine/Pre-commissioning/ Commissioning / Testing and trouble shooting of all type of Substation equipments, maintenance of communication equipment etc.
