Objectives Demonstrate and understand safe and efficient connection and operation of electrolysers and their impact on the system; Develop operational strategies to minimise the potential impact of electrolysers on the network Identifying the potential to provide other network services
Abstract To design and test an operational system for the safe, efficient operation of an electrolyser connected to the distribution network and establish a commercial framework for carrying out trials. To allow us to assess impacts of a large scale electrolyser on the network and produce a technical design for the ANM system which will allow a full range of trials to be undertaken.
