Northern Powergrid has invested in intelligent fuses and fault-location equipment on our low-voltage network to reduce the dependency on manual operation to restore power, shortening power cut times for their customers.
On high-voltage networks they have carried out significant upgrades to the control system, enabling their network to reconfigure itself automatically to respond to faults, restoring supplies more quickly.
