Analysis of the Technical Performance of C2C Operation for HV Networks

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report

Abstract

This report evaluates the technical benefits of the Capacity to Customers (C2C) project, an Ofgem Low Carbon Network Fund project led by Electr icity North West Limited (ENWL) in conjunction with several industrial and academic partners. The objective of the C2C project is to test a combination of new automation technology, non - conventional network operational practices (i.e., increased network interconnection), and commercial demand - side response (DSR) contracts. These changes will allow ENWL to increase interruptible demand and generation connections on a selection of trial circuits without resorting to conventional reinforcement measures. The project will thereby “release” inherent spare capacity in the high voltage (HV) system in order to accommodate the future forecast increases in demand and DG, and will therefore assist in meeting the UK’s ambitious CO2 emission targets.
