  • The Indian power grid is becoming highly complex owing to the integration of large-scale renewables, growth in decentralised generation, penetration of electric vehicles, and a rise in digital loads. This necessitates electric utilities to take steps to expand their transmission networks expeditiously as well as strengthen existing transmission links to ensure seamless flow of power. A large part of transmission system expansion in the coming years will be driven by the need to evacuate renewables, which are projected to reach 450 GW by 2030. Since a large part of the renewable capacity is expected to come up in remote, far-flung regions, there will be an increased focus on developing long-distance high-capacity transmission lines using advanced technology to compress construction schedules so that transmission projects can be commissioned in tandem with generation projects.
  • In recent years, advanced conductor technologies such as high-temperature low-sag (HTLS) conductors, superconductors and HVDC cables, among others, have gained prominence among transcos. Modern tower designs such as multi-circuit towers, narrow-based towers and monopoles are also being adopted to address right-of-way (RoW) issues, reduce visual impact, save costs, and expedite construction and installation. Additionally, in order to reduce project execution time, helicopters are being used for erecting towers and stringing conductors, particularly in inaccessible regions. Further, new approaches have emerged in surveying, patrolling, and operations and maintenance of transmission lines and tower structures, such as aerial patrolling solutions, GIS mapping, LiDAR, and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)/drones.
  • The power grid of the future would need to be more flexible, smart and resilient with growing decarbonisation and digitalisation across sectors. Transmission utilities will need to lay considerable emphasis on modernising intra-state networks and strengthening the grid. Significant demand is expected to come up for retrofitting, uprating and upgrading of networks including the replacement of conductors to better utilise the existing RoW. Furthermore, greater upstream expansion of cross-order networks is expected as the country pitches for the “One Sun One World One Grid” initiative.
  • The mission of this one-day virtual conference is to highlight the latest technologies and solutions for the design, erection, commissioning and maintenance of transmission lines and towers. It will also provide a platform for showcasing successful projects and best practices in the segment.


  • With the decarbonisation, decentralisation and digitalisation of the energy sector, T&D utilities are taking steps to transition and upgrade their power systems to cater to future grid requirements. These changes in the sector have led to the emergence of advanced substation technologies. Substation automation technologies have also graduated from SCADA to RTUs to IEDs.
  • Digital technologies are driving the evolution of digital substations and are rapidly gaining traction among power utilities. Digital systems integrate real-time data into the system mainframe, ensuring detailed and faster fault analysis, reduced downtime, faster response time and lower O&M costs. The growing integration of renewable energy also calls for the adoption of digital technologies in substations.
  • GIS substations have seen an increased deployment among utilities owing to their advantages like space-saving, better safety and low maintenance costs. The adoption of variants like hybrid substations and vertical GIS substations, and the use of environment-friendly insulation materials have seen an increase in the past few years.
  • Further, new generation substations are being equipped with advanced transformers, which are often based on environment-friendly technologies and have the ability to seamlessly adapt to the smart grid. Smart transformers, for instance, can independently regulate voltage while allowing remote operation by maintaining contact with the smart grid. Other emerging transformer technologies include phase-shifting transformers, HVDC convertor transformers, and energy efficient transformers.
  • Substation operations and maintenance (O&M) practices are also evolving as utilities now focus on condition-based monitoring, which helps minimise the occurrence of serious faults through continuous monitoring of key performance parameters. Another emerging O&M technique is reliability-centred maintenance, which focuses on optimising maintenance investment by limiting unnecessary tasks. The augmented reality (AR) and digital twin technologies are also coming up in a big way to improve asset performance and availability.
  • In addition, FACTS and reactive power compensation systems are being deployed to ensure grid stability and reliability as more renewable energy is being integrated with the grid and consumers demand quality power.
  • The mission of this one-day virtual conference is to highlight the latest technologies and solutions for the design, installation and O&M of high voltage transformers, switchgear and substations. It will also provide a platform for showcasing the successful projects and best practices in the segment.
