Kelvatek have collaborated with Electricity North West Limited on previous IFI projects to develop a range of low voltage monitoring and automation equipment to meet the requirements of future secondary networks. This equipment includes a retrofit device with switching, monitoring and basic protection capabilities which will fit into existing low voltage fuse pillar assets. This project is to further develop and implement the advanced protection and communications required to meet the demanding requirements of the low voltage networks of the future.
The project will deliver a new set of protection functions which will allow greater protection of the future low voltage networks, the method to calculate the settings to be applied to the different network configurations and a communications system to allow these to be altered remotely.
