About the Project
Weather plays a huge role in how the network behaves and severe weather can, in rare events, have an impact on the electricity network causing a significant inconvenience to individuals and businesses who are increasingly dependable on their electricity supply. Predict4Resilience (P4R) will provide accurate fault insights and forecasts for its users during adverse weather events. It is one of the first projects in Great Britain to utilise probabilistic fault prediction and related decision support, transforming human centric decision making and leading to an improved response to faults on the HV network.
P4R will provide Control Room operatives short term predictions regarding the expected level of faults in each district across the license area up to 7 days in advance. This will allow distribution network operators (DNOs) to better prepare for a storm and restore power supply sooner than is currently possible and minimise disruption for customers.
This proactive response will enable power supply to be restored more quickly than currently possible, reducing customer minutes lost and generating considerable direct benefits to consumers, network operators and the environment.
