Work Stream 7 - DS2030

WS7 of the Smart Grid Forum, through its Steering Group "WS7 SG" for this study, wishes to undertake more detailed electrical power system analysis (using nodal network models) of the electricity system of 2030, with particular focus on the distribution networks, their design and, critically, their operation.

Essentially, this WS7 study is addressing the modelling compromises that are inherent in Transform’s parametric network modelling approach. Transform’s parametric representation of typical distribution networks are to be converted into nodal models in order to explore, through appropriate network studies, how the Transform solutions ‘work’ and what currently unforeseen challenges might emerge.
