“The Centre for Carbon Measurement at NPLbrings together academic and businesspartners with government and is designed toensure that we can have confidence in themeasurements we need to deliver policies formitigating climate change, and accelerate thedevelopment of low carbon technologies.”David WillettsMinister of State for Universities and Science
Planning for the impact of renewablesChallenge: What effect will renewable retrofithave of a network – e.g. voltage rise, powerquality?
Instrumentation for NetworksChallenge:Control and instrumentation of networks - Howmany sensors are required to determine powerflow in a network? Where should they belocated?
Sensor coverage in Electricity NetworksHow manysensors areneeded ?Which sensorscan be removed?Whathappenswhen a givensensor fails?How to handletoo much data ?How accurateshould a givensensor be?
