What are the potential solutions
There are many ways of supporting voltage such as by using capacitors, synchronous condensers, statcoms and SVCs, but potentially also demand response and generation solutions. Moreover, the issue is complex and a portfolio of different assets – at various locations and commissioned at different times – rather than a single asset solution is needed.
After three years of in-depth analysis, we are proposing a mix of reliable and economic non-transmission solutions, reactive power plant and a demand management scheme. We detail our progress in our consultation documents, accompanying reports and updates, which can be found below.
