We have awarded funding for four Electricity North West Limited Second Tier projects. You can find further information on each project and related documents in the publications section below.
Fault Level Active Response - 2014
A project trialling the use of fault level assessment software in combination with one of two technical solutions or a revolutionary commercial concept to regulate fault currents in near real time.
Eta - 2013
A project trialling interconnection, and voltage management on, Low Voltage (LV) networks.
Customer Load Active System Services - 2012
A project that will explore the relationship between voltage and demand with the aim of providing DNOs with the knowledge to use voltage control to manage network constraints.
Capacity to Customers - 2011
A project that trials new operational techniques to release latent capacity within the existing high voltage (HV) network. This capacity is provided to ensure security of supply when network outages occur. The project will utilise this capacity by combining network automation and 'interruptible' contracts with large customers.
