Power Potential – energising reactive power for a changing power grid
The energy network is going through a historic change, moving away from the traditional model of large-scale, carbon-intensive generation towards a much more complex system of distributed energy resources connected to the energy networks.
National Grid ESO has teamed up with UK Power Networks to launch the Power Potential project, the first project in the world that aims to create a new reactive power market for distributed energy resources (DERs) and generate additional capacity on the network. Through the project, DERS will be able provide dynamic voltage control and active power services to the GB System Operator.
Power Potential will deliver both a commercial framework using market forces and a control platform, known as Distributed Energy Resources Management System (DERMS), to support technical and commercial optimisation and dispatch. This webinar focuses on the technical aspects of the Power Potential project and its proposed control solution while covering the need for transmission-distribution coordination to allow the provision of new services from DERs to National Grid ESO via UK Power Networks.
