  • Customer service supply availability

    Publication Year: 1993, Page(s):3/1 - 3/3
    IEEE is not the copyright holder of this material | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (164 KB)

    One of the biggest challenges facing electricity distribution engineers in the 1990's is to focus more sharply on the customer. Increasing expectation of service and the needs of modern equipment are causing customers and the regulatory body (OFFER) to question the reliability of electricity supplies. To address this issue, the author determines customers needs and how can they be met at minimum e... View full abstract»

    The integration of generation into a distribution system requires considerable care. Here, the author raises some issues of importance to the electricity supply industry and private generators. An appreciable amount of such generation already exists and has been operating satisfactorily for many years, particularly at large industrial plants. With the advent of privatisation, however, the reasons ... View full abstract»

    High voltage transmission systems are increasingly stressed because of the increase in demand and because of restrictions on new power lines due to environmental and regulatory concerns. But bulk power transfers and access by third parties are on the increase in highly interconnected, meshed transmission networks. Here, the author presents some considerations for the planning of flexible AC transm... View full abstract»

    High continuous thermal ratings of protection equipments are needed to match primary circuit loading. On the NGC 400 kV system the highest conductor rating is the post fault, 75°C winter rating for L6 lines at 3420 MVA. With 2000/1 current transformers this represents a continuous secondary current of just over 2.4 A. Modern protection equipment is able to closely match this requirement, howev...

    Following the restructuring of the UK electricity supply industry, the planning of generation is no longer centrally coordinated with the planning of transmission in England and Wales. This is demanding flexible and imaginative approaches from NGC transmission system designers in order to enable the company to meet its statutory obligations. The author restates NGC's statutory obligations, summari... View full abstract»

    The authors review the background, policy, construction and experience of overhead power lines using low and high voltage aerial bundled conductors (ABC) within a regional electricity company. The Company has installed a high voltage ABC scheme in the New Forest to gain experience with this type of line. This is discussed in some detail View full abstract»

    Provision of a secure supply of electricity is important to the industry regulator. Historically, the electricity supply industry has tended to define the supply quality which customers should receive. Much more attention is now being paid to finding what customers want and defining and monitoring levels of service. Both NGC and Distribution Companies are required to report annually on their netwo... View full abstract»
