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.
