Network Innovation Competition

The existing distribution network is increasingly strained
due to growing demand and a high penetration of distributed
generation. The conventional AC network has limited controllability
and flexibility, two fundamental attributes required as the network
evolves and becomes increasingly complex.
ANGLE-DC aims to demonstrate a novel network reinforcement
technique by converting an existing 33kV AC circuit to DC operation.
The technique can be used by DNOs as an efficient solution to create
network capacity headroom and facilitate GB’s objective for the shift
towards a low carbon economy.
