Brief power cut at Delhi airport hits operations

Brief power cut at Delhi airport hits operations

New Delhi, June 17 (UNI) In a rare occurrence, the Delhi airport on Monday afternoon witnessed a brief power outage which affected check-in and boarding operations.
Many flyers took to micro-blogging site 'X' to air their frustrations over power failure.
“Around 2 PM today, Delhi Airport's Main Receiving Sub-station (MRSS) detected a significant voltage spike at the grid, reportedly due to the tripping of a 765KV line. This voltage imbalance from the Delhi Transco Limited (DTL) Grid briefly impacted all IGI terminals, affecting baggage acceptance and e-gates," Delhi International Airport Ltd (DIAL) said in a statement.
DIAL said that in order to maintain essential services, the airport operator switched all terminals to DG load. It further said that the power back-up system was operationalised 'within a few minutes', and all back-up procedures were initiated to facilitate passengers at all touch points.
"By 3:00 PM, the grid voltage had stabilized and was accepted at the MRSS breaker and all services were smoothly transitioned back from DG load to DTL grid load, and the DG supply was disconnected," a DIAL spokesperson said.
