Innovation Funding Incentive

A part funded project through the Technology Strategy Board (TSB) Technology Programme (TP/4/EET/6/I/22088) that aims to optimise network design, operation and control by exploitation of dynamic circuit ratings.
This project seeks to explore the potential benefits arising from:

  • Improved utilisation of power system assets through the use of real time knowledge of the thermal status of the power system

  • Development of an active controller to facilitate this exploitation and to balance those issues requiring action by operational staff and those that can be dealt with by machine intelligence.
