Power electronics voltage regulator
Development of a single phase power electronics voltage regulator to be deployed on Low Voltage (LV) networks to provide a cost effective fast means of addressing voltage compliance, for over and under-voltage situations.

The project will also evaluate the use of the regulator in areas where micro generation has been installed, to provide effective voltage regulation.

This project can be described as an innovative method of dealing with voltage regulation, in areas which traditionally would require system reinforcement.
