Mapping of Low-Voltage Networks

Project Partners: Monash University, Powercor and AusNet Services Powercor Australia

As the electricity industry transitions from centralised generation with one way-flow to generation with a multi-directional flow throughout the low voltage distribution networks, the low-voltage network owners require a more  detailed understanding of their assets’ capabilities and capacity.  In order to maximise the hosting capacity of these networks, ensure minimal expenditure for any upgrades and maintain a safe and reliable supply, the distribution companies increasingly require better visibility and understanding of their networks.

This project will address some of the visibility challenges currently seen in power distribution networks by evaluating data from smart meters, thereby enabling increasing integration of distributed energy resources.
