Objectives A facility, managed through an advisory board comprising industry stakeholders, available to all GB Network Licensees. The project develops the facility from a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) 5 to a regulated, sustainable facility, TRL 8.
Abstract The project will modify an existing 400kV substation into an easily reconfigurable, field trial facility. This offgrid facility will replicate a live substation environment to overcome the operational barriers associated with the implementation of innovative methods and technologies on the electricity network.
