Scottish Power Transmission Limited

We have awarded funding for three Scottish Power Transmission Ltd projects.

Phoenix – System Security and Synchronous Compensators (Scottish Power Transmission) -2016

Phoenix will trial a novel combination of compensation equipment. The equipment will provide a new method of providing ancillary services (such as frequency regulation and voltage control) to the transmission system operator (SO), traditionally provided by large thermal generators. The project would also test how these services can be offered commercially, and investigate the associated agreements that need to be put in place for this to become a business as usual option across the GB network. 

Future Intelligent Transmission Network Substation (FITNESS) – 2015

This project aims to deliver a live multi-vendor digital substation instrumentation system to protect, monitor and control the transmission network.

Visualisation of Real Time System Dynamics using Enhanced Monitoring (VISOR) - 2013

This project will use enhanced monitoring techniques to provide a number of benefits associated with the secure integration of new technologies onto the transmission network and also provide visibility of system voltage and stability limits.

You can find further information on each project and related documents under the publications and updates feed below.
