LV & 11kV Networks and Substations
This project will develop a LV connectivity model using software to align meter supply points with local substations so that the links between substation feeders and user premises can be shown. These results can then be compared with the existing LV model, to give a level of confidence in using data analytics for this requirement.The project will use a small section of the LV network in Bracknell, 10 Substations with approx. 2000 connected properties, so that we can compare the data analytics model, with that obtained by manual means.Data from the Metering Point Registration System and the Geographical Information System will be provided to Bit Stew Systems for them to produce the LV connectivity data.The area of the network to be analysed, has already been mapped as part of the Tier 2 Thames Valley Vision project being undertaken by SEPD.

The output of the project is to produce LV connectivity diagrams, using software, for the trial area which is within an acceptable level of accuracy when compared with the manually derived diagram. 

The project will have been a success if the end conclusions are able to make a justifiable statement that the use of data analytics techniques with the available data are either 1) able to make an accurate LV connectivity model, or 2) not able to make an accurate LV connectivity model.
