6 Telecoms blueprint for the future

7 Are the current profiles sufficient? Do we need more sophisticated customer profiles ? To find out: – Model different levels of uptake of low carbon technology – Build customer profiles from types of use – Create a larger set of customer types SIM visualises expected constraints Develop future load scenarios

8 Share what we learn

9 Phased Delivery Mobilise Design Build Implement Trials Consolidate & Share 2011 20122013 20142015 Partner Contracts Agreed SIM Blueprint Consultation SIM Built New Load Scenarios Created Final Report Produced Trials Data Analysed

10 Scenario Investment Model(SIM)

11 What does it do? Network analysis for a Scenario encompassing many years. Applies possible techniques to constraints Assess solutions against multiple criteria (cost, practicality, CIs CMLs etc.) Analysis & Visualisation of results

12 Use of SIM Guidelines on alternatives to reinforcement Best options for this type of problem? In which conditions is this solution suitable? Falcon After Falcon To support long term network planning e.g. for capital program / price control. 11kV Network planning tool Evaluate other solutions than used in Falcon

13 How will it work? Assessment time horizon Now Time

14 Optimisation Assessment time horizon Now Time

15 SIM components Simulation Harness Manage simulation branching Network Modelling Tool Identify constraints Model techniques Network edits Calculate CML/CI, losses Network visualisation Load data Network data Economic module Optimisation / prioritisation Results store Data mining tool Visualisation

16 Load estimation

17 Load Data FeaturePastFuture “Worst” scenario WinterCould be winter, summer max, summer min or any time. Planning aimDesign to avoid constraints Understand duration and nature of constraints, may manage with dynamic techniques. Planning data requirements Winter maximum for average cold spell Evaluate half hourly over many years Typical days (season, day type) Monitoring requirements Monitoring at primary substation. View of power flows throughout the circuit to support dynamic techniques. Plus predictions

18 Half Hourly Load Estimates present day Estimation Method Settlement data Energy model Estimation Method Settlement data Energy model Network Measurements Quality Metrics & Analysis How well can we estimate loads today? Can we substitute estimates for monitoring equipment? Fully monitored CostUncertainty Fully Estimated Optimum

19 Load Estimation – Industry Data Based on the process used for settlement Half Hourly estimates for non half hourly metered customers Uses Estimated Annual Consumption + Profile coefficients for 8 different customer types. Add in Half hourly metered load, unmetered supplies, losses. Does this give us a good estimate? If so then use past data for similar day for real time estimation. But not so good for predicting load in 20 years time.

20 Energy Model Wider range of customer types (Dwelling type & age, heating system, occupancy, demographics ) Customer Propensity Differential uptake of new technologies. Models different types of electricity usage (Heating, lighting, appliances, etc.) Calculate impact of new technologies / changed efficiencies on load profile

21 Future Energy Profiles & Scenarios Customer type A (present day) Customer type A (2020) Changes reflecting Scenario

31 Commercial Intervention Techniques

32 What Services could we use? Event related An unplanned event has occurred which results in a network issue immediately, or in the next few hours. Seasonal Short lived network issues occur when the network is in its normal state. Issues are regular and predictable. Demand Reduce demand Generation Increase or reduce generation reducing activity time-shift load switch to own generation

33 Post Event Demand Side Response Primary substation HV Feeder

34 Challenges Location

35 Customers willing and able to respond? Commercial frameworks? Practicalities of implementation? Reliability? How much load is flexible Can customers see benefits How much financial reward How should reward be structured Use of Aggregators Common template Communicating requirements Measuring response Realistic models for use in SIM Learning
