Description

Greetings!

SP Energy Networks and NGET System Operator invite you to the project Phoenix inception stakeholder event on the 6th July 2017, to share the aims and objectives of the RIIO NIC project Phoenix: System Security and Synchronous Compensators.

Phoenix will conduct a live trial of a Hybrid Synchronous Compensator (H-SC) to demonstrate the potential services synchronous compensators can offer to support the future GB Grid. Together with our partners ABB, the University of Strathclyde and the Technical University of Denmark we would like to invite to share the objectives of the Phoenix project, the H-SC supplied by ABB and the live trial period, and discussions on future roll-out and potential future commercial frameworks. The event will provide an excellent opportunity to learn, and have your say, about the project and discuss with industry experts.

At the conclusion of the event you’ll have the opportunity to register to participate in the commercial working group to be set up as a part of project Phoenix.

Spaces are limited, so please register early to attend by clicking the link below. For questions please email pmohapatra@spenergynetworks.co.uk




AGENDA

10:00 Welcome address

10:05 SPEN Innovation and introduction to Phoenix

10:45 Commercial innovation in Phoenix

11:45 Lunch

12:30 Introduction to Commercial Working Group Questions and discussion

14:30 Event Conclusion



Phoenix aims to re-incarnate synchronous compensators in GB power system to restore spinning mass to provide dynamic voltage control, inertia and short-circuit capacity in light of diminishing synchronous generation; and address technical, engineering, commercial and regulatory ownership challenges that are the main barriers for roll-out of SCs.

Phoenix will demonstrate a sustainable design, deployment and operational control of a Hybrid Synchronous Compensator with innovative local and wide area control system combined with a flexible AC transmission system (FACTS) device for the first time on the GB network to:

  • Boost system inertia;

  • Provide dynamic voltage regulation;

  • Deliver reactive power injection support to alleviate voltage dip conditions;

  • Increase the system fault level and system total strength;

  • Enhance the oscillation damping capability;

  • Aid in maintaining power quality of the network

The biggest challenges facing the roll out of Synchronous Compensators in GB is

  • No financial certainties on return on investment for Synchronous Compensator owners/operators based on existing commercial mechanisms

  • Technical challenges relating to logistics, installation and connection of Synchronous Compensator

  • Technical challenges of optimally controlling and maintaining Synchronous Compensator in a wither context including other interacting power electronic technologies

  • Existing regulatory framework does not support the roll out

We look forward to presenting and discussing this innovative and potentially highly significant project with you!
