Monitoring Europe’s LV grid - An update on flexibility pilots

Seeking answers to distribution complexity? This webinar presents findings from European smart grid demonstration projects

Recorded: 08 Nov 2017

Webinar Overview

Is Europe closer to real-time, accurate monitoring of low voltage (LV) energy flows? What learnings can you take for your own energy distribution company from European Commission funded projects?

This webinar will showcase findings from the Dutch demonstration project led by Enexis. Located in Eindhoven, the demo aims to enable ancillary services, congestion management, and voltage support for PV integration using grid-connected storage systems.  The aim is to optimise all the available local flexibilities, using interactions between the DSO and the electric vehicle charge point operator to utilise the charging infrastructure for congestion management and voltage control.

Low voltage grid - technology provider 

To achieve the project, Enexis needed to have a low voltage real-time monitoring solution to know exactly what was going on in each active conductor. 

To monitor LV feeders in the MV/LV distribution substations, Enexis chose Socomec’s innovative monitoring system for its flexibility and ease of use. This plug-and-play system is now sending all data to Enexis’ control centre for flexible grid management.
