The introduction of SMART Networks within GB will potentially introduce increased uncertainty in the operation of the overall transmission network, in terms of both the increased level of volatility in demand and the consequent impact on transmission network flows. Without adequate data exchange and the development of suitable analysis tools and data visualisation between both the Transmission company and the DNOs it will not be possible to ensure that appropriate levels of security are maintained across all networks, ultimately potentially impacting the reliability of supply in GB.
The project will assess the requirements for, and demonstrate the viability of enhanced data exchange between National Grid (as Transmission System Operator) and the Distribution Network Operators to facilitate the secure and effective operation of the GB electricity networks following the introduction of Smart Grids.
