GSR019: Review of Chapter 7 Double Busbar Requirements
This working-group shall attempt to establish whether current interpretation of the NETS SQSS mandates the use of a double busbar (or equivalent) arrangement for the first onshore substation for offshore transmission system connections and if so, whether this requirement is the most economic and efficient solution for all offshore wind farm connections. If not, and subject to further working-group assessment, determine whether this deterministic requirement can be removed from the NETS SQSS if no net benefit can be demonstrated for this configuration of switchgear when considering the specific characteristics of offshore generation connections.
Modification status: Concluded
