Abstract

Northern Powergrid are responsible for the distribution of electrical energy to 3.8 million customers in the North East of England, Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire. They are accountable to the industry regulator OFGEM, in particular for the level of network risk, as measured by the frequency and duration of interruptions of supply to customers. Durham University has extensive experience of research into Power Systems, and of working with the electricity distribution industry both in the UK and overseas.
