DNO's meet to understand more about fault level reduction
FlexDGrid is exploring the potential benefits of utilising three methods to reduce fault level in Birmingham. During the workshop DNOs were provided with a detailed update on the progress and learning so far of Methods Alpha and Beta, relating to enhanced fault level assessment and real-time fault level management methodologies. The workshop also provided an overview of the proposed methodology for Method Gamma; the inclusion of five fault level mitigation technologies in existing primary substations and gave attendees the opportunity to feedback and discuss what’s happened and happening next in FlexDGrid.
"The workshop was a great opportunity to discuss the learning from the FlexDGrid project so far and discuss fault level mitigation technologies with other Distribution Network Operators. The feedback was really positive, we are pleased that the DNOs who attended agreed that the discussions throughout the day were valuable," said Jonathan Berry, FlexDGrid Project Manager.
