Network Losses and Power System Modelling. The project also uses 'smarter' intervention solutions within the power system model.
The project builds on previous IFI studies undertaken for Western Power Distribution (Central Networks) by Imperial College London. The previous project developed generic networks and calculated losses to be used as a comparison against reported data (based on settlement algorithms). This project used the same models, but set out to identify the network areas and components where losses generated (such as Transformers, voltage levels, service cables, etc.). Further this study will propose intervention measures to reduce losses and deliver a prioritised list of such initiatives.
