My scholarship commenced in March 2009, when I was employed by National Grid, the transmission system owner and operator in the UK.
During the first 3 months of my placement I worked with the “Strategy Review Team” and have been able to obtain some insight into various types of transmission reinforcements which may be used in order to improve network capability for the integration of large volumes of renewable generation.
I performed system studies implementing these reinforcements to determine the extent of their impact on the network.
My 1st Quarterly Report (PDF) is available here.
I welcome any feedback from all interested parties in relation to this report.
