Lucknow: Uttar Pradesh government on Tuesday said that taking into consideration the parameters at the time of grid failure, there was no reason that any power operation in the state triggered it.

"Taking into consideration the parameters at the time of grid failure, there is no reason to believe that any power operation in Uttar Pradesh triggered it," Principal Secretary, Energy, and Chairman UP Power Corporation Anil Kumar Gupta said.

"Power swing is suspected on account of some transmission line tripping, causing grid failure. It requires further investigation to ascertain the real cause," he said.

At the time of grid failure, power system of the state was stable without any emergency condition or any known abnormality.

The grid frequency, which should be in the range of 49.5 and 50.2, was 49.7 and overdrawn at this time was bare minimum at around 40 MW, power officials said here.

While generation from UP Rajya Vidyut Utpadan Nigam Limited thermal power stations was around 2200 MW, schedule supply from central sector was only 3,339 MW.

There was no 'Total Transfer Capability' (TTC) or 'Available Transfer Capability' (ATC) violation that means there was no imbalance in grid parity in the state, they said.

Gupta said he has issued strict directions to power engineers to make all efforts to maintain grid discipline and appealed to consumers to save energy and prevent pilferage as their contribution to ensure quality power supply.
