Modelling, Asset Management and Electricity Transmission Networks
The feasibility and assessment will consider a small representative section of the National Grid Electricity Transmission Network, such that asset performance information can be provided and coupled with additional system conditions to provide a comprehensive set of conditions which can be processed to establish the risk levels associated with different planning scenarios.
The key objectives of this research is to:
- Establish the viability of developing and adopting a more risk based approach to network planning based around system and asset management factors.
- Scope out the level of data, analysis and resources necessary to provide this level of information and study capacity.
- Understand the likelihood that this method could be reliably and robustly incorporated into future Network Owner business planning models.
The development of a visualisation module incorporated into/ interfacing with PowerFactory to demonstrate the feasibility of this concept.
