Innovation Funding Incentive
ENWL have invested significant IFI funding in the
development of a range of devices (TP-22, Rezap and Delta V) to assist with
the location of faults and the restoration of supplies to support ENWLs LV Fault
restoration strategy. It is essential that ENW are able to maximise the return
from these investments by developing a single integrated software tool that
can accept information from a number of remote monitoring devices and
deliver it to the dispatcher with instantaneous notification of all available
The scope of the project is to develop new Ttansient faults management
software within the Control Room Management System (CRMS) (based on ENWLs iHost Platform) to ensure
that transient faults are more effectively managed and dealt with more
efficiently and to ensure that any new devices that are developed can be
added to the system in a controlled and secure manner.
The aim of this project is to unify various hardware and software systems to
ensure data received in the field regarding faults or loss of supply is delivered
to the control room in a secure and reliable manner. Significant security
issues exist that required development work on ENWLs communications platform
to achieve the required levels of compatibility.
