Tata Power has signed a three-year commercial agreement with software firm BluWave-ai to operationalise artificial intelligence in day-to-day power distribution in Mumbai.
The agreement was signed after a successful trial project, during which Tata Power evaluated the performance of the BluWave-ai cloud platform to generate intra-day and day-ahead dispatches for use in its power scheduling operations. The company has deployed a few AI solutions such as The Central Control room for Renewable Assets (CCRA) which uses machine learning based on loss estimation, forecasting and alert/notification. In order to optimise the coal supply and order inventory management, Tata Power’s Coastal Gujarat Power Limited (CGPL) and Maithon Power Plant (MPL) units also use the pit to plant Coal Supply Management (Coal SCM) and Management Strategic Review (MSR) solutions. In addition to this, the company’s Mumbai Distribution team has implemented a sentiment analysis tool for email classification and routing which will help in proactive assessment of consumer needs.
