It has been observed with grieve concern that DISCOs Distribution Transformers burn out during summer due to overload. As the weather goes hotter, the load is increased and resultantly the Distribution Transformers are burnt out worth of billions of rupees during each summer season.
It is highly negligence because of non installation of system protection equipment along with the Transformers. The traditional cut-out system installed by Line Staff is highly dangerous which is often tied with extra heavy wire to avoid frequent disconnection and efforts to visit tripped Transformers time and again.
It is strongly recommended that proper cut-out should be installed and monitored by specific staff in routine to avoid this unnecessary loss to the department ultimately elevating consumer end tariff.
