resistance test, earthing test, insulation test of substation equipment, CT/PT ratio test,
isand mode operation test, charging of transmission line from PH to Phidim substation

transmission line, the power generated by the project was planned to evacuate
alternatively through Phidim-Tilkini 33 kV line by stepping down the transmission voltage
at Phidim substation. The plant was connected only at Main bus bar of Phidim substation
although the substation had provision of Main and Transfer bus scheme. Also, the
company installed AIS system for interconnection at Phidim substation.
