An Overview of Equipment Sourcing Trends for Power Transmission in India The power transmission network length in India is likely to increase from 198407 ckt km in FY-08 to 364921 ckt km by FY-17 at all voltage levels above 220 kV. While the transformation capacity has grown two fold from 249439 MVA in FY -08 to 669801 MVA in FY-17. The development of this infrastructure over the last one decade has entailed an investments from both state as well central transmission utilities for establishment of transmission lines and substations across India. From Exhibit 01 it is pertinent to note that 17.11 USD Billion has been the cumulative investments made for intra state transmission network from FY-08 to FY -17. Further the investments made in establishment of inter state transmission line has doubled from USD 4.23 Billion to USD 9.3 Billion in same period. The exhibit 2 presents the capacity addition of HVDC terminals and AC sub stations transformation capacity in India. It is important to note that the HVDC back to back terminals have found significant capacity addition in from 2003 to 2012 in India. In last one decade transmission network
