This project will explore the capabilities of robots to identify faults on the LV network, expose the faulted cable and prepare the cable to be repaired. This will have benefits to both the safety of the operational staff from locating and exposing faulted assets and will also reduce the time taken for customers supplies to be reconnected.
The solution will centre on the development of new or utilisation of existing, in a different format, technology to provide the dense power requirements of EV charging in a small form factor that makes it suitable and applicable for installation on pavements, grass verges etc. for the purpose of on-street charging.
Building on the developments of through the FlexDGrid project, where a mechanical FLM device was developed and tested, this project will focus on the use of power electronic technologies (or other) to develop a small form factor, accurate FLM, which can be quickly installed and is portable to be re-deployable as the needs of the network change.
How a large number of public vehicles are suitably charged in an area or areas of a town and city to facilitate the goals of moving to all-electric vehicles is to be explored. This project should consider the balance between infrastructure investment and charging models and mechanisms to optimise the investment and utilisation of assets.
