  1. 1. Measurement for Smart GridsJane BurstonHead, Centre for Carbon MeasurementNational Physical Laboratory5th Annual Smart Grids & Cleanpower 2013 Conference5 June 2013 Cambridgewww.cir-strategy.com/events/cleanpower
  2. 2. What is NPL?• World-leading science and technologylaboratory• Directly-owned by BIS• 550+ staff• Working with and for business,academia and government• Science with impact
  3. 3. Embedded andubiquitousmeasurementSmart andinterconnectedmeasurementMeasurement atthe frontiers
  4. 4. “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
  5. 5. Planning for the impact of renewablesChallenge: What effect will renewable retrofithave of a network – e.g. voltage rise, powerquality?
  6. 6. Site PQ MeasurementsSolar Retrofit - Anglesey
  7. 7. Metrology for HVDC
  8. 8. Wind turbine flicker
  9. 9. Instrumentation for NetworksChallenge:Control and instrumentation of networks - Howmany sensors are required to determine powerflow in a network? Where should they belocated?
  10. 10. 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?
  11. 11. MMMMMMMMM MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM MMMMMMVital Important Optional
  12. 12. Determination of Carbon Savings inSmart Grid TrialsChallenge: How to calculate the net carbonsavings in a Smart Grid trial in a consistentand rigorous manner, for comparisons withother trials and business planning?
  13. 13. Carbon Savings modelDevelop model to estimate andoptimise carbon savings in smartgrids projectsTrial with case studies e.g. LCNFprojectsDevelop a PAS (Publicly AvailableSpecification) with industry partners
  14. 14. Future projectsWide Area PQ(PQ propagation usingGPS locked digitizers)Grid Impedance(Field MeasurementsVs. Models)Dynamic Ratingof OHLs(Field Measurements)Smart Meter Networks(Power Flow using S/Mdata)Sensor Networks(Optimal number ofsensors and placement)Demand Response(Sensor Networks+ algorithms)
