Time Series Data Quality - Closedown Report

01/03/2017

The Time Series Data Quality project aimed to improve the quality and usability of the network operational data by developing ‘Big Data’ analysis techniques, and using these to look specifically at that data collected on a half hourly basis using an initial pilot evaluation area covering the WPD South West region. The main objective being to understand the issues and determine how best to address them. It was also intended that by understanding the data more comprehensively, that this would also benefit our control systems. At the end of the project we would then disseminate our findings for all DNO’s to then apply any learning for their own purposes.
