Modelling requirements for GB Power System Resilience - commissioned papers summary
The Institution of Engineering and Technology was commissioned by the Council of Science and Technology (CST) to research the emerging challenges for modelling electricity systems and how Britain’s capabilities would need to be adapted to assess electricity system resilience as GB makes the transition to a low carbon electricity system.
This project commissioned and received, fifteen individual papers from GB-based specialists of international standing in power system modelling. The authors of the papers worked with a wide stakeholder base of network companies, academics and others, who provided review and challenge. Professor Graham Ault CEng FIET was contracted to provide technical co-ordination and drafting. The emerging conclusions were further validated by means of an industry and academic workshop sponsored by Government Office for Science. The entire project was conducted under the direction of an independent steering committee composed of senior IET Fellows, two of whom were also CST nominees.
