National Grid UK Prepares Today for the Grid of Tomorrow

By James McNally | Case Studies

Electrical generation is undergoing a transformation with renewable energy sources growing rapidly. What is good for the earth is not necessarily good for the power grid!

National Grid need to measure the impact of these sources on the power quality of the UK distribution network and we are working with them to develop a distributed network of power quality monitors to collect and present key parameters to understand grid-wide trends.

You can learn more about this from their case study on ni.com.

National Grid Power Quality Monitoring

Initially, I wasn’t sure if Wiresmith would be able to combine the many disciplines required to deliver our complex integrated system, but after a short time of working with James on our project, the breadth and depth of multi-disciplinary skill that Wiresmith brought to it became apparent. We were also pleased that additional expertise could be brought in as required.

James was very professional in handling our requirements and was always on hand when we needed him. An agile method of developing software was adopted. This suited our needs as we were defining our specification as we explored options for building our system. It enabled us to work quickly and to improve our system incrementally. We would recommend Wiresmith Technology’s services as they have delivered what we required to a high quality of workmanship
