Distribution system planning studies can take a variety of forms. Whether a short-term plan used to prepare construction budgets or a 20- year long range plan used to guide system expansion, utilities are realizing tangible gains through proactive management of their systems. The objective of Power Distribution System planning is to develop a thorough understanding of the existing system and prepare a roadmap for near-term and future investments needed to provide adequate, reliable, and economical service to new and existing customers. Techlabs possesses the required expertise to address the emergent needs of the distribution sector and provide best-fit solutions. While distribution utilities concentrate on their daily operational issues, Techlabs unburdens them by collecting system technical data, preparing and managing network Data, perform various planning studies, develop detailed revamp plan whenever required and assist utility engineers to enhance performance of distribution network.
