solution for powercut in tamilnadu
solution for powercut in tamilnadu
      Today i'm going say something about power cut and its solution FOR POWER CUT IN TAMILNADU…!!!
Before finding the solution we must analyse problem behind power cut,then we can find optimum and possible solutions for power cut 
To my knowledge.
1.We don’t have enough power to supply.reasons are given below

-Below is the Neyveli lignite corporations power productions..!!

But our consumptions:

The power consumption in the state on July 6 broke all previous records — for the second time in two months — touching a new high of 244.947 million units (MU). The previous high was recorded on June 20 at 243.880 MU.“The maximum power demand touched 244.947 MU, a new record of power consumption in the state,” a senior Tangedco official said.The state usually sees electricity consumption peak between March and June due to the summer and agricultural activities.
Besides the soaring temperature, the agricultural activities would begin in the delta districts for kuruvai crop.“The delta farmers in eight districts are given 12 hours of three phase agricultural supply to meet their irrigation requirement in absence of water release in Cauvery on June 12,” an official said.With the availability wind power, the demand-supply gap in the state has come down from 3,500-4,000 MW a day to 1,500-2,000 MW a day.The scorching heat has pushed the ever-rising power demand to a new high of 11,283 megawatts (MW) on June 26 surpassing the previous high on June 6 when it soared to 11,078 MW.
Thus power produced is comparatively lesser than what we consume  and this is the reason for power cut in tamilnadu…

Possible solutions:

Govt told about 2solutions:

Power cuts in Tamilnadu has increased. We hoped that Kudankulam atomic power station will be the solution. But unfortunately it raised a big problem. Now Tamilnadu CMJayalalitha has made a great move that is to construct Udankudi thermal power station at cost of 8000crore.

Udankudi Thermal Power station

Udankudi is located at Tuticorin district, Tamilnadu. Udankudi was a sea shore village very near to Trichendur. Presently Tamilnadu CM Jalalitha has proposed Thermal power station in Udandkudi, 8000 crore as budget. In the year 2007 MOU was made between BHEL and Tamilnadu Electricity board. They have planned to set up 1,600 MW (2x800 MW) Thermal power station with raw material as coal. Subsequently, a joint venture with utankuti Power Corporation was established in December 2008. Utankuti thermal power project cost is estimated as Rs 8,000 crore. This amount includes debt and shares. 26 percent of the amount involves capital stock of the current council and another 26 percent of amount provided by Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited Company, the remaining 48 percent will be shares from private corporations.

Udankudi - Solution to Tamilnadu power cut

Udankudi is capable to generate 1600 MW power. This 1600 MW power will be distributed to Tamilnadu alone. If this power plant is constructed then there will be job vacancies for BE students in future. Frequent power cuts may reduce. There is an announcement made that there will be only 4hrs power cut in Tamilnadu districts. If this Udankudi power station is constructed power cut timing will be reduced to 2hrs. 

My suggestions:

1.Construction of  Solar power plant:
Govt is trying to do the same…
The Tamil Nadu Government has commenced the implementation of its ambitious programme to provide solar-powered lights to 300,000 homes in the State.
Work on this has been going on in the last couple of weeks in the Tiruchi district and 60,000 homes would be lighted in the current financial year, Sudeep Jain, Chairman and Managing Director, Tamilnadu Energy Development Agency (TEDA), said today.
(The government intends to do it in phase of 60,000 homes over a five-year period. The first phase was to have been completed in 2011-12, at a cost of Rs 1,080 crore. Under the programme, solar panels would be put up on the roofs measuring 300 sq. ft. Each unit would cost Rs 1.80 lakh. As the programme is meant for rural poor, the entire cost would be to the government.)
Speaking at a conference on the ‘Dependability of REC mechanism, RPO and power trading in solar industry,’ organised here by the Energy and Fuel Users’ Association (ENFUSE), Jain said that the Tamil Nadu government was also implementing another programme to energise 100,000 street lights with solar power, at a cost of Rs 200 crore. ENFUSE is an organisation which is supported by the major oil companies such as ONGC, IOC and CPCL and the conference was sponsored by CPCL.
Both the home light and street light programme are grid-backed, “the first of their kind in the country,” Jain said.

Net metering

Jain said that the Government of Tamil Nadu was also very keen on net-metering. (Net metering enables the rooftop solar plant can put in surplus energy into the grid because it spins the other direction when power is being put into the grid, thereby giving credit to the generator.)
He noted that two pilot net metering projects were on—one in TEDA’s own office building and another at Auroville, Puducherry. He said that when net metering became a reality, rooftop solar plants could do away with the costly and energy-inefficient battery-based storage.
Jain also hoped that just as the prices of solar panels have fallen drastically (from $2.5 a watt in 2009 to around $0.65 a watt now), the prices of inverters would also fall.
He said that the cost of putting up a 1 kW rooftop solar plant had come down from Rs 2.5 lakh a couple of years back to Rs 1.5 lakh and said that if the cost of inverters came down, the overall cost would come down to less than Rs 1 lakh per kW. The rooftop solar movement would take-off then, he said. of inverter and batteries at home:
 Batteries can be constructed from waste aluminium,copper or we can buy old materials  which cost less than new one. And inverter you can get its circuits from internet itself.
