The objective of this project was to facilitate proper power distribution network planning and analysis, reduce time to attend power outage complaints of customers, curb the AT&C (Aggregate Technical & Commercial) loss etc. The complete and successful implementation of this project required an accurate update of its GIS database to reflect the modifications in the field for improved monitoring.
CyberSWIFT is a GIS-based company that provides geospatial services for Electric Utilities for the purpose of updating data in accordance with the changes that have been implemented in the field, among other services. We were awarded the work for 22 towns in West Bengal.
The entire process was completed in the following steps:
1. Our field executives visited the station manager of the power distribution units every 15 days to collect the network update reports from individual supply offices.
2. Within the 15 days of collection of a report, surveyors conducted the following tasks:
A. Extensive DGPS field surveys to update the existing network report.
B. Map update and the submission of updated geo-database (FGDB) to the client.
C. Demonstration of the updated map to the district magistrate and the station manager to receive completion certificate of the work.
D. DTR (Distribution Transformer) painting for new or updated DTR or DTRs with missing asset paint.
E. Submission of the work report to the district magistrate.
3. After the completion of the first 15-day survey data updating cycle, our executives repeated the above steps to update the database for the next network report for the subsequent 15 days and so on until the completion of the entire project.
We delivered an updated GIS database synchronized with the changes in the spatial and attribute data of the electrical assets implemented in the field.
