SPECIAL INSTRUCTION TO BIDDERS
SECTION IB
SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS TO BIDDERS
While the general provisions of this tender document spell out all the requirements for a
responsive bid for this tender, the following special instruction clarifies the specific clauses
applicable to specific lots. Therefore, when there is a contradiction on the provisions of the
general instructions to the bidders (Section 1A) and the provisions of this Special Instruction
to the Bidders, the provisions of this section shall overrule. This section is presented in an
Annex-1 with all the requirements indicated against the respective lots. Bidders are requested
to ensure that they go through this checklist and submit all necessary documents to be
responsive.
Some of the major features of this Special Instruction to Bidders are:
1. LICENSE CATEGORY
This is to identify appropriate license category for various Dealers/Bidders in
Bhutan. Apart from the manufacturers, for most of the Bidders the appropriate
license shall be supply of electrical goods, hardware items and fabrication items.
2. MANUFACTURER’S AUTHORIZATION
Since local manufacturing capacity is non-existent or limited for most of the
materials, manufacturer’s authorization needs to be produced by the bidders for the
major items. For some minor items that could be available in generic brand across
the market, manufacturer’s authorization is not required.
3. BRAND NAMES
BPC has adopted the policy of restricting certain Strategic Critical Items (SCSKU’s) as per the provision of the BPC Procurement Manual to ensure high quality,
reduce inventory and to sustain long-term smooth operation and maintenance
services. Bidders must ensure that for these lots, only the listed brand names are
quoted and effort must be made to source this equipment directly from the
manufacturers and or their authorized dealers. Preferred Brands/makes are specified
in Price Schedule.
4. EARNEST MONEY DEPOSIT (EMD)
EMD has been fixed at various amounts for the lots that is approximately equal to
2% of the estimated cost of the lot. However, to ensure confidentiality of estimated
costs, certain percentages are then added or deducted to arrive at the final EMD
amount (Refer Annex-1). Preferably EMD should be submitted for the individual
lots. Combined EMD would be also accepted, however, if the combined EMD is not
sufficient in terms of total amount, the offer for the entire quoted lots would be
treated as non-responsive as per Clause 16, Sub-clause 16.3 of Section IA – ITB and
not considered for further evaluation.
14
SECTION IB
SPECIAL INSTRUCTION TO BIDDERS
5. DELIVERY
Different Lots would require different delivery periods. Strategic critical items like
that of HV equipment and bulk items those are to be sourced directly from the
manufacturers would require at least 3-4 months whereas some of the tools and
tackles and equipment that are readily available off the shelf could be supplied in
shorter periods. Therefore, the delivery period ranges from 60 days for the
smaller/non-critical materials to about 120 days for Transformers etc. Bidders are
requested to specially note this condition to avoid late delivery and LD charges
(Refer Annex-1).
6. 10% PERFORMANCE SECURITY TO BE VALID OVER THE WARRANTY
PERIOD
For most of the critical items and bulk items the 10% security shall be extended over
the entire warranty period. But for other misc. and bulk items the 10% performance
security shall be released after a period ranging from immediate upon delivery to 3
months after delivery but the manufacturing warranty period shall be valid as per
standard practice (Refer Annex-1).

PROTECTION CHARACTERISTICS
General
The ratio of drop-off current to pick-up current shall be at least 90% for all protection
functions. The SEF function shall be equipped with harmonic filtering to prevent
operation when harmonics are present in the primary residual earth currents. A low pass
filter with 3rd harmonic rejection > 28dB shall be supplied. Both the SEF function and
69
SECTION IV
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
its filter shall be described in the tender documentation. All protection functions, i.e.
over-current (O/C), earth fault (E/F) and sensitive earth fault (SEF) shall have elements
with characteristics that comply with IEC 60255.
The sequence of trip and auto-reclose characteristics for O/C, E/F and SEF shall be
programmable to enable:
• the selection of any combination of the available elements for each trip in the
trip-and-reclose sequence; and
• Separate trip-and-reclose sequences for O/C, E/F and SEF with the same number
of reclosing intervals for O/C and E/F.
In case of IDMTL protection elements the AR shall preferably be provided with a disc
reset timer that simulates the resetting functionality of an upstream electromechanical
induction disc relay by implementing a disc reset timer. The length of the time delay
shall preferably be settable to be able to simulate the upstream device (settable between
5s and 20 s), however, if a fixed time delay is provided it should be between 4s and 5s.
A Sequence co-ordination feature shall be provided to ensure trip-close sequence coordination for combinations of rapid and delayed protection operations applied to ARs
in series. The Sequence co-ordination functionality shall be such that:
• an AR senses the presence of an over-current or earth fault, as well as the
clearance of that fault by another downstream device and proceeds to the next
protection operation in its own sequence; and
• it proceeds in its sequence of rapid protection operations only, allowing the full
number of delayed operations to be executed for in-zone conditions.
Loss of Phase (LOP) protection shall be provided to ensure the protection functionality
of AR as below:
• AR should trip with no auto-reclose if there is a loss of voltage on one or two
phases on the upstream part of the line. Loss of supply on all three phases shall
not generate the protection trip.
• Facility to turn LOP ON or OFF without affecting other protection functions of
the device. Password or other form of access control shall be provided
• The parameters of configuration of LOP shall include the voltage level (phase to
ground) and time of loss of supply on one or two phases. The voltage level shall
be configurable from 5000 to 10000 Volts with steps not greater than 250 V.
Time range shall be configurable from 1 to 60 sec with steps not greater than 1
sec.
• The information about LOP operation in case of the protection trip shall be
recorded accordingly with indication of the phase(s) causing the trip of AR. The
information about LOP operation shall be easily assessable.
Directional Blocking shall be provided to ensure the protection functionality of AR as
specified below:
• AR and Control Element shall be capable to detect the direction of the fault
current. Minimum time to determinate fault direction for O/C and E/F shall be
70
SECTION IV
TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS
•
•
•
not greater than 50 msec. For Sensitive Earth Fault (SEF) the time to
determinate the fault direction shall not be greater than 1 sec.
Configuration for Directional Blocking shall include the separate settings for
Characteristic Angle for O/C and E/F elements. The range for setting of
characteristic Angle shall be from -180 Deg to 180 Deg with the step not greater
than 5 Deg.
The Directional Blocking shall have the facilities to configure AR to trip or
block for upstream and downstream faults. This shall be configured separately
for O/C, E/F and SEF.
The information about Directional Blocking operation in case of the protection
trip shall be recorded accordingly in history.
The AR and Control element shall support multiple protection groups and this shall
meet the requirements specified below:
• The AR shall have minimum 4 independent protection groups. The Protection
