Power and new & renewable energy minister Raj Kumar Singh launched ‘Automatic Generation Control (AGC)’ on January 4, 2022.
Who is operating AGC?
Work of POSOCO
POSOCO oversees the India’s critical electricity load management functions through National Load Dispatch Centre (NLDC), State Load Despatch centres (SLDCs) and regional load dispatch centres (RLDCs). Currently, India has 33 SLDCs, 1 NLDC and 5 RLDCs, for the five regional grids forming national grid.
Significance of AGC
AGC holds significance, because four out of five regional load despatch centres (RLDCs) in India have witnessed cyber-attacks. Red Echo, which is a hacker group affiliated with Chinese government, has targeted India’s power grid repeatedly, in 2021.
On India’s march for achieving the renewable energy capacity of 175 GW in 2022, it has achieved an installed capacity of 150 GW of renewable energy. 63 GW of renewable energy capacity are under other phases of installation.
