The monitoring of the 11kV and LV networks.
The Intelligent Distribution Network Monitoring study set out to
investigate the viability of increased monitoring of the 11kV and Low Voltage (LV)
networks, and to evaluate the cost benefit case associated with the
deployment of a specific monitoring technology based on optical current
sensors. Existing monitoring and control devices in the networks were
taken into consideration, and a high level model for the costs and
benefits associated with different levels of monitoring was developed.
This study focused mainly on the business benefits associated with
Network Planning and Network Operations. Using this model, an optimal
level of monitoring has been identified.
