We have awarded funding to two UK Power Networks projects:
Active Response - Active Response to Distribution Network Constraints
This project builds on existing innovation to address network constraints to the uptake of low carbon technologies. It proposes to develop and demonstrate advanced automation and power electronic devices at low / high voltage levels, enabling increased network meshing where it is not currently possible. This will release network capacity quickly, at minimum cost and avoiding traditional reinforcement.
POWERFL-CB - Power-electronic Fault Limiting Circuit Breaker
This project will develop and test an 11kV Fault Limiting Circuit Breaker.
