• HVDS is a technology where the Electricity is distributed to the consumers at Higher Voltage Level (11kV) instead of Low Voltage (400V/240V)
  • Normally in the present distribution network, the 11kV HT line goes to the DTC (Distribution Transformer Centre) and from there lengthy LT Lines (400V/240V) are drawn to give supply to different installations
  • In HVDS System the HT lines are run up to the installation premises and there it is stepped down through a Transformer before arranging supply through service main
