DISPATCHING

Electricity is not a storable commodity. Hence it is necessary to produce the requested quantity and distribute it through the system in such a way as to ensure that electricity supply and demand are always evenly balanced, thus guaranteeing continuity and safety in supply of the service. Management of the flows of electricity is known as dispatching.
