Network Monitoring
This project has been a joint venture between CE Electric and Durham University. It was a three year project with the majority of the work being undertaken by a mature student working towards a PhD. The work was completed in this reporting year.

The philosophy underpinning the design of distribution networks in the UK has evolved over a period of many years during the formative stages of the development of the networks.

Development of a methodology to quantify network risk and develop a network risk modelling assessment tool.
