As part major construction projects in the late 1990s and early 2000s, 3 pilot
installations of Non Conventional Instrument Transformers (NCIT) were installed as shadow systems by substation project
companies to help them gain some operational experience with this new
technology. These projects have since lacked a focus and any value output, so
this R&D project is to manage these trials through to a mutually agreed
completion and outcome, with reporting on the lessons learnt and benefits
achieved. It will lead to a planned decommissioning, removal and disposal of
these non-maintained assets.
This Project aims to deliver closure, reporting on the learning achieved and the
potential whole life value benefits of 3 pilot installations of NCITs, which are
currently installed as shadow /non operational systems on the National Grid
electricity transmission system. This will help formulate future strategies and
direction for future NCIT trials and implementations.
