Distribution Network Analysis using advanced statistical modelling techniques to better predict the effects of weather events on the network.
The aims of the project are:

  • To develop effective statistical models which will enable accurate advance warning to be provided of power line faults arising from climatic or weather conditions

  • To develop predictive models which can enable preventive measures to be taken which will reduce the incidence and duration of weather related power supply disruption

  • To reduce costs by responding faster to weather induced circuit failures and by enabling pre-emptive actions to reduce the likelihood of failure caused by storm conditions.
