[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

I am residing in Karthikeyapuram 7th street, Madipakkam. We are facing frequent power cuts and power fluctuation. Incremental flats are approved without checking for sufficient power supply from transformer leads to power cuts and voltage drop during the mid night. We are unable to sleep properly and concentrate on next day work. New apartment is under construction with 12 houses in the 7th street, after the completion of the same we will be facing lots and lots of difficulties with power shortage. It is will be very helpful if separate transformer is provided to our area to lead healthy and peaceful life. Please ask concerned officer to look into this as soon as possible.
this is still continuing till 2011 may in madipakkam veeramani st and around, worst EB. it's past mid night here now and still no one slept at my home. Useless government and the EB board. worried that we may have to loose the AC in few days due to this voltage fluctuation inspite of the stablizers as it gets switched off every one minute. down down EB board madipakkam.
Hi all, this is Ganesh

I live in a 5 flat apartment in govindasamy nagar, madipakkam. I'm having a serious low voltage problem and after 6~7 pm everyday it drops much more. I'm having the exact problems said by mr. S.Bharathkumaar almost 2 years ago. Still no action taken on this issue by the local EB officials. Approving apartments without calculating the power distribution is the biggest problem in this area. And still it worsens as the total tamil nadu power generation crisis grows. If anybody can take up this issue to higher officials, please do it to correct.

I am staying in Ullagaram for the past 26 years. Here we have a very bad voltage fluctuation. We are not able to run ACs after 9 PM. The worst part is fan would run as if it is running in 1st or 2nd point. To add to this misery, we have got more flats coming around our house.
The only solution is that the EB department should install trasnformers and also urge the flat promoters to install separate transformers for their flats.
Hope this would get notified and the problem gets resolved.
its same across all areas in madippakam. dont we deserve to sleep at nights like any other in chennai, are we paying any less for electricity than anyother in chennai? please address the electricity problems at madippakam. if some one knew the actual procedure to have this addressed, please share.
We are and facing similar issues at Keelkattalai, SRVS colony. The Voltage drops below 160V, after 8pm and the fans are changing speeds constantly, I am not sure if the current frequency is proper or stable in addition to the voltage fluctuations. Moreover even during daytime the TV gets switched off because Stabilizer has low input voltage, same with PC and all electrical appliances. I appeal to the EB department to install power distribution Transformers in the area as quickly as possible.
Voltage Fluctuation at Velachery, Chennai 42
I am a resident of Pillaiyar koil lane, Velachery. For the past 3 weeks, we are facing very bad power fluctuation and voltage drops here. We are using double booster stabilizera for AC. Even after that, there is no difference. The basic electrical euqipments like fans, lights are also not working. Even the mobile chargers are not working and spoiled due to this. Request TNEB to take necessary steps IMMEDIATELY to solve this problem.

Expecting your kind consideration.

P.S.: I have complained regarding this to the AE at this number: [protected]
