Scottish Hydro Electric Power Distribution (SHEPD) is seeking views from stakeholders on the proposed creation of a new SHEPD Network Access Policy. This Network Access Policy (NAP) sets out how generation is managed on the network in the North of Scotland during outage conditions.

We are calling on our stakeholders to provide feedback on our proposed options for generation management, and are asking for interested parties to respond by the 31st May 2020.

This webinar will take you through the policy and the options available.

This webinar will describe the results so far from Work Package 9 of the PROMOTioN project toward the goal of demonstration of DC grid protection.
Start Date:
Wed 13 May 2020 12:30
End Date:
Wed 13 May 2020 13:30
Location:
Skype Webinar
Region:
Scotland
Category:
Connections, Reliability, Innovation, Customer service
Details:
Within the PROMOTioN project there have been many developments in: HVDC protection strategy and protection algorithm design (Work Package [WP] 4); HVDC protection IED development and test (WP4 towards WP9); and modelling and testing of HVDC circuit breakers (WP5, WP6 and WP10). The aim of WP9 is to validate the correct operation and performance of protection strategies designed in WP4, with representative HVDC circuit breaker models from WP6, in a realistic HVDC network and with prototype hardware protection IEDs. Whilst the protection strategies have been studied in detail in offline simulation, and the protection IEDs have been tested independently, the key contribution of WP9 is to test all of the elements together in system-level tests in order to validate the correct operation of the protection system as a whole.
Originally we had planned on having a physical demonstration event at the beginning of May but that is not currently possible. This webinar is an opportunity to share the learning from WP9 at this point.

Agenda:
* Context
-Introduction to PROMOTioN
-Work Package 9
* Test objects
-MELCO IED
-PROMOTioN IED
* Testing and Results
-Models used
-KPIs
-Partially and fully selective results
-Multivendor results
-Discussions / Q&A

Please note that the times in the description are BST; this is 13:30 to 14:30 CEST.

This webinar is aimed at local generators in the South of the UK, that can offer flexibility support on our electricity network.
Start Date:
Fri 15 May 2020 10:00
End Date:

Location:
Skype Webinar
Region:

Details:
Generators and demand connections will have the opportunity to contribute to delivering a low-carbon, smarter energy system as Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks (SSEN) seeks flexibility providers to support the electricity network in the south of England.

SSEN has identified four areas in the south which will benefit from smarter solutions, known as flexible services, to manage electricity demand during maintenance work or fault conditions:
CMZ Location:

* Havant (Secure, Dynamic and Restore)
* Chickerell (Secure, Dynamic and Restore)
* Thatcham (Secure, Dynamic and Restore)
* Rownhams (Secure, Dynamic and Restore)

These areas are will be live on Piclo Flex in the coming weeks, the independent marketplace for buying and selling smart grid flexibility services, and SSEN is calling on interested parties to register at picloflex.com.

Known as Constraint Managed Zones (CMZ), flexibility services from renewable energy generators and battery storage, including hydro, solar and wind, can opt in to being paid to provide power to support SSEN's network during maintenance and faults on the network, reducing the reliance on fossil fuel based energy generation. Service providers can also opt in to be paid to turn down their electricity demand to support SSEN's network operations.

Objectives of Webinar

The Webinar will cover an overview of CMZ and the different requested services you may want to offer in the locations mentioned above, we will also go into the procurement process.

On accepting this invitation, please note that your email address will be visible to all who join the webinar. If you are registering with a personal email address, please consider providing us with an alternative email. If you do not wish for your email to be visible, please do not join this webinar.
