Power Generation: Rural India – A Case Study"
Bharadwaj and Rahul Tongia
In this paper, we present an analysis of a rural distribution
network to examine what the benefits of decentralized generation would be for
meeting rural loads. We use load flow analysis to simulate the line conditions
for actual rural feeders in India, and quantify the loss reduction and system
improvement by having decentralized generation available. We also present a
framework for valuing ancillary services from the generator, viz., reactive
power. This provides a starting point for utilities in developing countries to
better plan their systems to meet dispersed loads, while optimizing for
renewables and other decentralized generation sources.
