    NEW DELHI: Multiple-tripping incidents were reported in the northern region on Monday after power demand shot up to 89.4 gigawatt (GW), leading to a supply gap of 16.5 GW, as per a Northern Regional Load Despatch Centre (NRLDC) report.

    , Delhi, , Uttarakhand, Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and J&K were the affected states, the report said.

    NRLDC is a part of the Load Despatch Centre (NLDC), which under the Union Ministry of Power, is responsible for scheduling and dispatch of electricity over the inter-regional links.

    “At 13:53, northern region demand experienced a reduction in load of the order of 16.5 GW. The incident occurred immediately after the tripping of both bipoles of +/-800 kV HVDC Champa (WR) – Kurukshetra (NR) which was carrying 4,500 MW from the Western Region to the Northern Region. After tripping of the HVDC link, low voltages were observed across the northern region and the above load reduction occurred,” NRLDC said.
