UK Power Networks operate the Distribution Network across the south east of the UK, including London. As part of their vision to be a world-leading DSO, they required a multi-use case DERMS, with ANM capability, to deliver a broad range of use cases across their business. Use cases include flexible connections, flexibility services, coordinated services with National Grid, and optimisation of the network with power electronics.
UK Power Networks selected ANM Strata as the core ANM platform for DER integration and to support multi-layered control of DER. ANM Strata was selected because of its ability to integrate all types and sizes of DER, operate as a multi-use case DERMS hosting multiple different control schemes, and orchestrate use cases across different time horizons. ANM Strata was integrated with advanced online simulation tools and a flexibility market platform.
ANM Strata is currently being deployed across the licence area and will be operational in October 2019.
