The Big Zero report

Do you have a bright idea to help the Ministry of Defence (MOD) address the impact of poor power management on its estates and inefficiencies in the management of power quality?

The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) has launched a new Market Exploration called Power Quality Management, seeking to understand the effect poor power quality, power factor and harmonic distortion has on its estate and ships.

In addition, it also seeks to understand the capacity of campus sites to take on distributed power resources such as solar and fast charging for electric vehicles (EVs), especially when multiples are stacked on the same local grid or site.

The MOD estate incorporates a wide range of sites including offices, data centres, workshops, operational bases and houses as well as the deployed environment.

It wants to gain an understanding of the products and tools available and an assessment of their key benefits in areas including holistic power quality management, system phase balancing, reaction to external fault events, grid stability impact and data capture and reporting capabilities, among others.

It is therefore seeking ideas from interested parties until 19th August 2021.
