The construction of a total system peak loading model to evaluate the relationship between load and cost and allow Electricity North West to quantify the volume and value of network side response available.

The primary objective of this project is to better understand the capability of the network to accept new loads and to understand the constraints in terms of asset ratings and location and the potential costs and opportunities to Electricity North West. The principal aim is to build a software platform to facilitate modelling of the financial and ratings impact of proposed new smart grid demands. The proposed model will enable a range of scenarios to be developed based on different penetrations of new demands that do not follow either the load or demand profile of traditional network loads with the objective of identifying the potential reinforcement locations and costs.
