By the end of this project we expect to have developed a prototype which would be at a sufficient TRL to enable large-scale trials and commercial launch within 3-years.

The completion of the project combined with the individual partners’ expertise will enable the ideas & products developed to be adapted for almost any LV distribution network.

 

  • Develop a performance specification for the system
  • Carry out R&D of different control and protection strategies to meet regulatory/H&S requirements and assess alternative PEC circuits
  • Design, build and test a number of different prototype PECs
  • Develop and build a number of new 3C SiC MOSFETs
  • Identify, design and build a test network for the PEC system trials
  • Validate the trial data
  • Devise a road-map for future functionality and commercial development.
