The Central Electricity Authority (CEA) has released the Draft Universal Feeder Code. The draft follows the MoP’s letter to the CEA directing it to formulate a guideline/methodology for the generation of a unique code for each feeder (rural and urban) to map electricity supply-related infrastructure of the discoms in a digital format. The move aims to ensure better utilisation of the installed infrastructure under various central government schemes. The CEA has sought comments on the draft guidelines. It has proposed a 16-letter code for feeders. At present, many discoms in the country are already following one or the other methodology for feeder coding, especially to integrate their systems with SCADA.
