[Resolved] Tneb — Voltage Fluctuation at Karthikeyapuram, Madipakkam, Chennai-91
I am a resident of Karthikeyapuram, Madipakkam. For months together, we have very bad power fluctuation and voltage drops here. When my electrician checked in the afternoon he said it was 160 volts only. Our AC is not working at that voltage. Hence he advised to put a Double Boost stabilizer, which he said will work even upto 140 volts (costs around Rs.4000). I did that. Even after that during nights, the Double Boost doesn't work after 8.30 or 9.00 pm (It seems voltage drops even below 140 volts !). One more bigger problem is my Computer UPS is not at all getting charged due to low voltage. Whenever I switch on the computer, it stands only for 5 minutes and immediately when there is a fluctuation, the UPS dies and the computer switches off abruptly without properly shutting down. I am afraid I will loose my good equipment like computer, AC, heater, TV etc. Even fans do not gain speed and make eerie noises at night, and we are sweating. My kid could not sleep properly. It is not only for me but for all the residents of Karthikeyapuram, Madipakkam. If such equipment wears out, it will be a calamity for many residents. Thus, hard earned money will be lost due to power shortage and voltage drops. Request TNEB to take necessary steps IMMEDIATELY to stop voltage fluctuation and power cuts. Regards / S Bharathkumaar
