Alternative, low cost voltage reduction trial
To test progressive voltage reductions as a method of minimising long term energy demand while staying within statutory voltage limits.

·         Expected benefits will be modelled using system design tools prior to tests on the live system.

·         Test the benefits of voltage control with an optimised passive set point for minimising long term energy demand.

·         Test the benefits of voltage control with a dynamic set point for minimising long term energy demand.

·         Examine the potential for using a dynamic set point for creating a DSO flexibility product.
Customer bill reduction, low network investment
