Nagpur: Maha Metro Nagpur’s first TTMC Building, which houses Receiving Sub-Station (RSS) inaugurated by Managing Director Dr. Brijesh Dixit on Tuesday at Morris College Ground, Sitabuldi. This is Metro’s first ever Receiving Sub-Station. Though this sub-station would cater to the power needs of North-South Corridor, it would also supply electricity to East-West Corridor during emergency.
Thus, the Traffic and Transit Management Centre (TTMC), one of the Maha Metro Nagpur’s mega project. The TTMC project involves commercial use of available space. It would signal opening of malls, shops and offices in the building. The TTMC building houses Maha Metro’s Receiving Sub-Station.
The incoming power supply to the sub-station is taken from Mankapur Grid Substation of Maharashtra State Electricity Transmission Company Limited (MSETCL). Underground cables of 132 kV voltage level have been laid in double circuit of 9 Km between MSETCL GSS to Metro RSS. This major sub-station has full capacity to provide Traction Power & Auxiliary Power for entire N-S corridor.
In simple terms, power supply from a source is converted to match particular needs of a utility, at the Receiving Sub-Station.
