Customer Load Active System Services

This project aims to explore the relationship between voltage and demand. The project will seek to use existing network assets in an innovative way to vary the voltage on the network to reduce the load.

Friday, December 21, 2012 to Wednesday, September 30, 2015



Dr Luis Ochoa

Within the 'big area' of Flexible Low-Carbon Distribution Networks (medium and low voltage) the following are my main research interests:

- Integration of Distributed Low-Carbon Technologies (wind, photovoltaics, electric vehicles, storage, demand side management)

- Active Network Management (Smart Grids)

- Optimisation of Distribution Networks (operation and planning)

- Future Distribution Network Management Systems

- Real-Time Digital Simulator (RTDS) Hardware-in-the-Loop Studies
