With the transition to a low carbon economy it is increasingly likely that an awareness of power flows on a distribution network will be necessary, and equally unlikely that it will be economic to install sensors all points on the network. The aim of this project is to develop prototype algorithms for Distribution System State Estimation (DSSE). These will fill in the gaps by estimating the most likely state of a network from the best available, limited information.
The overall research objective will be achieved through two parallel work streams, to be completed in a co-ordinated manner. One work stream is focussing on DSSE methodologies and the other on implementation issues.
