We have awarded funding to two Electricity North West projects:
The project aims to integrate standalone discrete voltage control schemes into a single scheme using ENWL’s Network Management System (NMS). It will develop a novel distribution network-wide, fully co-ordinated, overarching system to manage voltages and balance centralised and decentralised control hierarchies. This should reduce cumulative design margins and free up network capacity.
The project aims to manage potentially excessive temperatures at distribution substations which could release additional capacity and reduce costs.
You can find further information on the project and related documents in the publications and updates section below.
