The sixth in a series of EIA seminars provided an insight into the development of power systems and verification of transmission and distribution equipment. The National Renewable Energy Centre (Narec) hosted the event. The organisation’s role in supporting the development of emerging technologies, especially in off-shore wind farms, formed the backdrop for the technical sessions.
The topic of insulation coordination was discussed relative to transmission systems, with views given on specific electrical systems going forward.
The seminar also included a site visit to the Narec Technology Campus at Blyth which provided delegates with an appreciation of the organisation’s existing capabilities and exciting developments which are underway.
