Abstract

The UK is subject to changing weather patterns due to the global process of climate change. The full extent of these changes is not currently known; however, it is possible that the UK will be subject to more extreme or more frequent severe weather events (or both). As 50% of the faults on the transmission network in Britain are weather related it is likely that any change in weather patterns for the worse would increase the number of faults the network experiences. This paper describes a review of fault records in one region of the UK in order to understand the potential impact on system operation of clusters of weather related network faults. Based on the patterns of identified clusters, it suggests some potential impacts of climate change.
