Neilston Substation site visit
When: Tuesday 10th September 2019, 09:30 to 15:30
Where: Neilston Substation, Scottish Power Transmission, Neilston, Glasgow
How: See the registration link below
The CIGRE UK NGN invites NGN members and students interested in the power industry, to join them for a trip to the Neilston substation, managed by Scottish Power Transmission (SPT). The site hosts a new hybrid solution combining two technologies, as part of the Phoenix project: Synchronous Condensers and Static Compensators.
These devices will mitigate serious system issues on the GB transmission network as a result of the progressive closure of synchronous generation plants. This event will include presentations from industry and academia and a tour of the substation, with a focus on the final deliverable of SPT’s Phoenix Project. A detailed agenda will be shared with you after registering for the event.
“Application of Superconductor Synchronous Compensator for Power System Applications ”, Dr Min Zhang, Reader, University of Strathclyde
“Role of CCGT in Frequency Regulation in Future Power Systems”, Antony Cooke, Automation Engineer, South Humber Bank Power Station
“Distributed ReStart”, Callum Dell, Graduate Consultant, TNEI
