When mobile generation is used there are times that customers are removed from supply before being re-connected to the network. Any interruptions to the customers supply firstly cost the company money for time lost (CI / CMLs), and secondly reduce SSEs reputation of reliability in supply, and finally customers are affected. This device aims to solve these issues.
The project will trial and evaluate the use of an innovative mobile synchronising unit to synchronise mobile generation back onto the network. The GVR will be capable of allowing a portion of overhead line that is fed by mobile generation to be synchronised back to the main network, without the requirement to take customers offline to allow the removal of the generator.
