LV & 11kV Networks
Predicted increases in Distributed Generation, the electrification of transport and heating may require networks to have an increased capacity and improved voltage control. New ideas are being researched as an alternative to conventional network reinforcement. This project will model the effectiveness of reactive power compensation on the LV network and the impact on the rest of the distribution network under steady state and transient conditions.
This project will analyse reactive power compensation as a method to increase capacity and improve voltage control on LV networks, today and with predicted future increases of Low Carbon Technologies.
