Avoiding fault level risks: a pressing challenge for power distribution networks
17 November 2020
Utility Week’s new report in association with FaultCurrent Ltd, explores the options available to DNO’s as they struggle to head off the risks associated with diminishing fault level headroom across their asset base due to growth in distributed generation.
Adding new sources of distributed generation to the UK power distribution network is vital in the ongoing pivot towards Net Zero and ‘green’ heat and transport. But accommodating growth in these sources of low carbon supply and demand places huge strains on existing DNO assets, including creating an increased risk of exceeding the fault level ratings of critical kit.
Read this report to hear how new innovations in fault level limitation can help DNOs head off this risk and play a positive and proactive role in the UK’s net zero transition.
Key topics covered include:
– Why fault level mitigation is a problem of our times
– How to diagnose fault current
– Options for treating fault current problems
– Why a new and innovative fault level limiter could resolve DNO challenges affordably
