Innovation Funding Incentive
LV & 11kV Networks
The project will aim to examine the management of the Low Voltage (LV) network.
This project aims to provide a complete solution to monitor and automate
the LV network. Retrofit-able load break/fault make switches for
underground link boxes will be developed, as well as fault break / fault
make circuit-breakers for LV panels in substations.
The scope of the LV Remote Control and Automation IFI project which
developed prototype devices has been significantly extended to cover
the development aspects of the Smart Urban LV Network
LCNF Tier 1 project (both projects will be run in parallel), and will also
part fund the Area 2 deployment which will investigate potential quality of
supply benefits. Once both projects are completed, approximately 50%
of the technology development cost would have been funded by UK Power Networks.
