Next generation solutions for electrical grid monitoring

Emerging social trends such as the widespread deployment of small-scale solar installations, the adoption of electric vehicles and changing patterns of power generation are putting immense pressure on the UKs electrical grid infrastructure. In order to invest efficiently and minimise consumer bills, the Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) are in a race to upgrade, maintain and replace infrastructure as our demand for energy grows.

Under an Innovate UK grant, 42 Technology opened discussions with 5 DNOs to discover why smart metering of the grid is not being widely adopted. This revealed that the major factors came down to the cost of meters and long disruptions in service during installation. To overcome these problems 42 Technology designed and tested a novel retrofittable low cost secondary substation monitor called ‘FuseOhm’. FuseOhm is a fraction of the cost and takes a fraction of the time to install compared to existing solutions. This presentation will look at how 42 Technology built their FuseOhm substation monitor and walks through the steps they are taking to make the smart grid a reality.

Richard Prudence is an Electronics Engineer and one of the technical leads on the FuseOhm Project. 42 Technology is a Cambridge based technical consultancy focused on solving complex engineering problems and developing next generation products.

Open to all. Full details at https://communities.theiet.org/communities/events/item/229/77/23356 Bookings can be made at https://localevents.theiet.org/493d14

This talk is part of the IET series.
