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.
