Electrical power is transmitted through the transmission systems from the central generating stations to the end users using a series of distribution transformers and lines. From around 1990, there has been a growing interest in connecting generations directly to the distribution system, known as Distributed Generation (DG) or Distributed Energy Resources (DER). In some countries, a strict definition of distributed generation is made, based either on the rating of the plant or on the voltage level to which it is connected to the grid. However, these definitions usually follow technical documents.

One of the greatest and the most obvious problem that India & the other developing countries are facing today is the increasing demand of electricity and its poor supply. The rising gap between demand and supply of electricity is the major factor of concern to developing countries like India. The power generation cannot be increased over night, and involves lot of investments. However, the present day scenario can be improved if we apply some more scientific techniques and methods to reduce power loss in distribution system.

The article takes a peep into the some of the problems faced by distribution companies and attempts to analyze the major reasons for the current financial state of the DISCOMs in India. He establishes the need for a wholesome and holistic approach to stem the rot rather than piece-meal efforts. “Inadequate or piece-meal response to danger signals can only have catastrophic consequences. After all if you try to plug a leaking dam with your fingers, you will soon run out of fingers".
