UK energy sector breakthrough as grid stability continuously measured

The UK energy sector has seen a major breakthrough as a project has, for the first time, continuously measured and monitored grid stability across a network. National Grid and Reactive Technologies have completed Project SIM, which included a real-time monitoring of inertia using the latter firm’s GridMetrix solution. System inertia is a measure of the […]
