Dirty diesel backups will make Hinkley Point C look like a bargain

Re: Heads in the cloud or so far up their...

'All because our politicians and civil servants are a collection of unredeemed eco-obsessed fuckwits.'

As much as I would like to agree there is a valid argument that we don't put all our eggs in one basket.

This means varying the fuel between gas, nuclear, wind and solar. The Seventies saw the country brought to its knees by an over reliance on one fuel i.e. coal.

That same argument can be applied to the generation technology, therefore multiple reactor designs spread the risk of a common design fault knocking out a large percentage of our generating capacity. There are three or four different manufacturers of Power Gas Turbines in the world ( foreign IP ) and the generating companies source from all of them for service in the UK precisely to hedge their risk, the same can be said for wind and solar.

For a national infrastructure of such importance I find it difficult to argue against that approach as long as the percentage of each technology and costs are controlled, and there is the rub, as we are all paying for it via the capacity market and strike price each technology achieves.

Personally I disagree with the diesel standby market which has come about and believe it should be replaced with additional gas capacity due to it's far more manageable emissions.

Re: Haters gonna hate...

@ Robin Bradshaw

Thanks, an interesting read, a 126 page specification including required functionality, cryptographic algorithms and private /public key requirements, clearly this has been well thought out.

Yes, it appears remote isolation functionality is a requirement of the specification, specifically tied to prepayment mode emergency credit settings and functionality (page 43 point v.) however as I read it this is a specific feature of the prepayment mode it must support, alongside credit mode. Probably along the lines of existing prepaid meters. Of course, you do have to agree to the installation of a prepayment meter and I would expect a similar and robust process as that in place currently to apply in allowing your energy provider to set this mode on the meter. In short, if your credit history and performance is reasonable I wouldn't expect any issue.

Your issue regarding Load Limiting reads to me as perhaps a little simplistic. The specified requirement is quite specific that certain conditions have to be met to disable supply and then a time condition to enable resupply . I can see a more benign application for this, such as a user running their supply close to the design maximum but below the threshold of the fuses. This would heat the incoming supply wiring,wiring joints,and equipment significantly, increasing the risk of an electrical fire considerably. This Load Limiting functionality could manage this situation as you would need to shed load to ensure a persistent supply. Again though, this load limit is definable and I would expect a reasonable and robust process to be in place to agree this setting with your energy supplier or DNO. I don't see it unreasonable to enter into a pre agreed peak power limit with your providers.

Re: Haters gonna hate...

@ John H Woods

'Given the latter, you will have to make a net saving.'

I won't have to make the 'saving', installation is 'free', supposedly at no cost to me.

In reality though the project is being financed through CCL / energy taxes with the highest consumers proportionally paying the highest cost. This being the case, the less energy I use, the less tax I pay and the less I contribute to financing the project.

I don't disagree that currently a cheap induction loop device would provide valuable information, however when fine grained tariffs fully arrive, (note that BG are just now sticking their toe in the water with free weekend electricity deals) then remotely accessible metering will be a requirement to give your supplier confidence that they can accurately track or profile your consumption in fairly real time and trade their Grid import/export balance effectively.

You have to remember that there is at least one intermediate distribution company between you and your energy supplier therefore the better data your supplier has regarding its energy balance at any one time, the better deals they are likely to offer as they can control their losses and 'hedging' more effectively.

Again, its Information Technology...

Haters gonna hate...

For a site supposedly frequented by intelligent IT savvy people there is an alarming lack of vision about any potentially positive advantages to the end user. Just paranoia about remote isolation. Please, anyone who has actually got a smart meter confirm that this is part of the spec (these are not pay as you go meters ) so I don’t believe it is, or whining about running appliances keeping everyone up at night.

Not everyone is in the same position and some may find greater advantage than others, however more accurate consumption information permits informed decisions and potentially, monetary savings. We all use energy, it’s like taxes, you can’t get away from it. If you don’t wish to make energy savings and want to pay more than your fair share of the CCL, thereby lining the pockets of those fortunate enough to be renewables adopters then go ahead, carry on hating. Personally, I don’t want to pay any more tax than I need to, I would rather take the information and make it work for me ( isn't that the fundamental goal of Information Technology?) I have far better uses for my money than to give it away when I don't have to.

Re: If you have a PV Array then the last thing you want is a smart meter

'nope, i get FIT and they havent installed a new meter. it may be different now though, this was 5 years ago.'

Re: If you have a PV Array then the last thing you want is a smart meter

'nope, i get FIT and they havent installed a new meter. it may be different now though, this was 5 years ago'

That's very interesting.

Then do you mind me asking what figures you submit to claim the generation and FiT?

The energy I import FROM the grid is registered on my original meter and I pay my energy supplier based on those figures. I submit quarterly 'generation' figures from the 'new' meter and the contracted assumption is that I export 50% of it TO the grid ( my original meter is an electronic unit and does't go backwards).Therefore, I get money for each kWh generated and FiT on 50% of the total. This being the case, it's in my interest to actually export less than 50% of that generated i.e. use it myself, as I am being paid FiT on it anyway (along with the generation amount) whether I use it or not.

I am struggling to see how this scheme would work to your advantage with (what appears to be) your one meter which goes backwards. If its decrementing your total it sounds as if it's actually reducing the amount you can claim? Its worth thinking about, as your relatively high generation/FiT price may be obscuring an issue where potentially you could be earning more....

Re: communicate with the grid... mmmmm

I don't recall claiming 40 years in the industry.

Have you heard of the speed of light, speed of a wave front through a conductor and propagation delay? That is the phenomenon which ensures frequency cannot be the same at every point in the grid instantaneously.

I have no intention trawling through the rest of your essay arguing the toss other than to question the emphasis you have placed on a single control room (it's in Warwick for the record) when in practice, to control frequency, NGC request strategically placed generation units around the UK grid to operate in 'Frequency Control' mode where they essentially act as regional 'clocks' to stabilise the local frequency.

I have no need to "resort to authority", I just resort to practical knowledge.

'I'm not even sure we're talking the same language here.'

No we are not. I am talking from the point of view that I worked in the power industry for a number of years with direct experience of the issues. You, along with posting as an AC are frankly just waffling.I note your earlier indignation did nothing to contribute on a technical level.

The assertion 'frequency has to be, give or take near-unmeasurable differences' the same across the grid is just nonsense, for a start it defies the laws of physics! The US, with their larger grid, for precisely this frequency control problem, section their grid using Direct Current inter-connectors, but I digress.

Additionally, don't confuse 'system' inertia with physical inertia. System inertia comes from the variance of making a change to the change actually happening throughout the system, its a control concept.

Perhaps your quoted source abandoned their website because they no longer wanted to be associated with a ill conceived idea which doesn't stand up to scrutiny, you may want to consider following that lead....

Re: If you have a PV Array then the last thing you want is a smart meter

Yes, quite possibly as the old meters with a rotating disc are essentially a motor which rotates proportionally to the amplitude of the line current and relative to the direction of the current, They were designed at a time where the likelihood of having independent generation in the household was remote.

Electronic meters measure the amplitude of the current and can just discard the reverse current situation and only increment an import counter (though generally, hidden in the backend is an export counter on any decent meter).

You will still have a new electronic meter installed to satisfy the FiT scheme as the serial number would have had to be registered to make the payments against.

Count yourself lucky as you should be getting the money and reducing the registered import consumption, you will be making a double win with the old meter until your DNO decides to change it.

'I'm not sure where inductance and capacitance come into this particular picture (though I do realise that power factor significantly away from unity on significant loads is a Bad Thing'

So what do you think is affecting the power factor? Its the inductance and capacitance. This admission puts the rest of your comments into context such as your suggestion that the frequency is the same everywhere on the grid, its a big grid and not every point can be the same instantaneously, there is a system inertia which has to be managed.

It's a non starter...

Re: communicate with the grid... mmmmm

Sadly you or your sources have little concept of AC distribution theory or how the grid is managed. Simply put, frequency is affected by grid inductive and capacitive load which is constantly changing and enormous effort and resource is put into trying to keep the frequency as close to 50Hz as possible, in fact Grid Code dictates a specific range as frequency directly relates to power.

To suggest pushing the grid frequency around as a means of communication is a non starter.

Superimposing lower amplitude higher frequencies would be and is an option, think 'mains link' products but whatever the solution, it will be the one with the most acceptable cost.

Shoving the grid frequency around at command is not it.

Re: If you have a PV Array then the last thing you want is a smart meter

'As for the feed in tarriff... It is reducing quite a bit over the next few years.'

But you do understand that the FiT is reducing for new installs don't you? If you are already in the scheme your FiT is index linked and will therefore increase in line with inflation through the term of your contract.

If you have a PV installation then you must realise you have two meters? One new one to provide the figures to claim your FiT, which if you have registered would have required an initial reading and then another three months later which by my calculation would have been last month for you.

If your import meter is running backwards then count yourself lucky until your local DNO decides to replace it, as is their legislated right to do so.

Errr, I don't believe any of us will be privy to the statements actually made in court, only a version supplied to the media, I suspect the source being the guy under the SRO who is more than keen to publicise the issue in a clear attempt to sway public opinion.

Do you truly believe that this is a case of a Judge ( a Queens Council, the cream of the barrister community), taking a personal dislike to someone and not remaining impartial? I believe the statement regarding his character was part of the judgement, precisely what is required of a judge. The clue is in the description.

‘it is morally indefensible’

The author's morals maybe, but life has taught me that there is huge variability in personal morals, generally relative and on a sliding scale to the applicability to the individual.

The input and professional assessment from multiple expert personnel has fed into this ruling, it clearly hasn’t been an arbitrary decision. The judged “dangerous individual” has taken it upon himself to publicise the issue thereby ensuring difficulty in obtaining employment and maybe housing. Possibly a further attempt to be ‘manipulative’?

Is he an IT consultant or an IT contractor? Or, is he just a bloke who knows his way around a computer? The description has changed between El Reg articles.

Personally, my morals can accept the assement and judgement of the listed professionals involved, that’s what their role in society is, to make judgements and attempt to protect society.

I thought your financial and efficiency numbers seemed a bit iffy, vague and dismissive of the FiT income. It seems your usage is atypical, as most people are grid connected and therefore interested in the additional income and savings to be made.

I personally have both thermal and PV and my numbers say that if the scheme payments supported a bigger roof array at the expense of the solar thermal then that is what I would do.

The thought of giving the excess generation away to your neighbours is commendable however for most people it’s the payback time that matters.

Re: In terms of watts per dollar...

‘evacuated tube installations only takes up a small proportion of a house's roof so you can fit PV panels around it as well and get the best of both worlds’

There is little reason to take this approach now as there are commercially available units which monitor the electrical export from your PV array and drive your immersion heater, recovering the energy in the form of hot water rather than export it. Anything more than around 100W export and your immersion heater is fired, (wonderful things, thyristors).

These units are available at a fraction of the cost of a thermal installation. You do need a hot water tank or Heatstore however you would need one of these for a thermal installation anyway.

Re: Dual Redundant Power Feeds?

RE 'IIRC - I may well be wrong! - that ~35KV is for the distribution of a small village'

I am afraid you are. You are confusing potential difference (volts) with power (watts).

The transmission voltage is selected depending upon distance from the generation source with respect to power requirement. The more power you require further from the generation source, as a rule of thumb, the higher the transmission voltage as it reduces the transmission current and conductor cross section requirements and therefore the losses.

I would expect the CERN installation power requirements to be in the multi megawatt range.

I don't believe that is the case. Certainly not when I did my NEBOSH certificate.

A risk assessment and subsequently identified control measures along with a whole host of other requirements and best practices, are tools required to be used as part of an employers Health and Safety management strategy. This should comply with the POPMAR mnemonic ( policy, organisation,planning,management,audit and review). RA, Procedures, Guidance and Best Practice etc are part of the management section.

The victim's brief will challenge the employers compliance in all areas and the burden of proof is on the employer. Subsequently, blame is apportioned dependent on their compliance and any negligence from either party. The RA is just one small part of the overall challenge.

Accidents DO happen, however full compliance with all the above is deemed to reduce the probability as far as reasonably practicable.

However, in the real world, no one appears to achieve full compliance therefore 'where there is blame there is a claim'.

Also, you are not necessarily surrendering material strength in comparison to metals. Polyaramides, (AKA Kevlar) can resist more force in the tensile mode than steel, fibres of this type would be under tensile load in an inflated configuration and therefore exploiting their inherent properties.

You also potentially have greater material strength and resilience due to layering and orientation of the fibres to resist the extent of impact damage.

An inflatable structure might not appear at first view to instill a great amount of confidence yet pound for pound probably provides much enhanced performance than existing construction materials and configurations.
