Chandigarh, Aug 26 (IANS) Power woes of northern states during summers are likely to be controlled with the northern power grid being synchronised with the central power grid Saturday.

A spokesman of the south Haryana electricity distribution corporation described the synchronisation of the two grids as 'historic' in the country's transmission system.

The central power grid comprises the western, eastern and northeastern regions of the country. The grids have been connected through a 400 KV transmission line.

With the synchronisation of the two grids, the power deficit states fed from the northern power grid, including Haryana, can utilise surplus power from the eastern and western grids.

The spokesman said the frequency variation in the northern grid would now be minimum. The frequency level in the northern power grid has improved immediately after the synchronisation of the two grids, he added.

Power cuts and voltage fluctuations would now be reduced to the minimum, the spokesman claimed.
