Transfer Capacity Enhancement by Faraday Technology
3 JULY 2019
Analysing the impact of the Faraday Grid on total transfer capacity of an existing network, with no further investments in transmission or distribution capacity enhancement. Transfer capacity analysis has been carried out on different transmission and distribution networks.
The results demonstrate that the Faraday Grid could significantly improve the transfer capacity of existing electricity networks, and fundamentally would safely supply higher demands. Utilities and network operators can use the extra capacity unlocked by the Faraday Grid to penetrate more renewable energy at grid supply points or as an alternative to further infrastructure upgrades.

A Co-simulation Framework for Distribution Network Analysis: Case Study of Hosting Capacity Analysis
3 JUNE 2019
Assessing the importance of accurate evaluation of renewable hosting capacity of a distribution network to avoid any detrimental effect caused by increased penetration. In this White Paper, The Faraday Grid team proposes a two-stage optimisation-based approach to calculate the maximum renewable hosting capacity of a distribution network without violating any security constraint. The results indicate higher hosting capacity is achievable.
OFGEM RIIO 2 FRAMEWORK CONSULTATION
1 MAY 2018
In their response, Faraday Grid urges the incentivisation of fundamental network-wide solutions as opposed to seeking out incremental mitigating technologies providing only temporary relief from network-wide pressures.

FARADAY EXCHANGER BENEFITS - HIGH VOLTAGE NETWORK SIMULATION
9 FEBRUARY 2018
This white paper by Jagadeesh Gunda demonstrates the key technical and economic benefits of the Faraday Exchanger (FE), a Faraday Grid (FG) technology through results obtained from detailed simulations on numerous electrical networks from various countries.
ELECTRICITY GRIDS AND MARKETS: CURRENT STATUS, PROBLEMS, AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE FARADAY GRID
5 DECEMBER 2017
This White Paper by Dr Harry van der Weijde, the University of Edinburgh Chancellor’s Fellow finds that the current electricity system is fast approaching a breaking point and will not be able to handle higher levels of renewable energy without substantial new costs that would hit consumers. Dr van der Weijde concludes that the Faraday Grid can resolve the challenge of increasing renewable energy penetration and preventing the looming threat of doubling or tripling of longer term electricity prices.
