Mysore, Feb. 26- A new software for efficient management of power supply system in city has been developed by city-based National Institute of Engineering (NIE). The new software would soon be applied in all power distribution centres in the city.

The above information was disclosed by P. Manivannan, Deputy Commissioner of Mysore, in a meeting of functionaries of Chamundeshwari Electricity Supply Company (CHESCom), Jamshedpur Utility Services Company (JUSCO), Vani Vilas Water Works (VVWW) and citizens held in the meeting hall of Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) to discuss the power and water problems of the city on Wednesday.

The Karnataka Power Transmission Corporation Limited (KPTCL) must supply a maximum of 220 MW of power and a minimum of 100 MW to Mysore city every day through six lines. However, presently an average of 150 MW of power is being supplied. The newly developed software will be used to regulate power supply to different locations in city and also the schedule of power cuts, he explained.

The junior level Engineers in the power distribution centres across the city were managing power system without understanding the task and that had resulted in problems to consumers which would be resolved by the new software, the DC claimed.
