This Distribution Code public consultation is seeking the views from industry stakeholders on the proposed modification to Engineering Recommendation (EREC) P18. Additionally, the consultation seeks to understand stakeholders views on the future development requirements of EREC P18.
Guidance on the Complexity of 132kV circuits previously provided in ER P18 Issue 1 (1978), would, if approved, be superseded by the modified EREC P18 Issue 2 (2019). The limits and technical requirements in this EREC have been reviewed and have not materially changed during the revision.
The recommended revision of EREC P18 was a cosmetic revision to align with the latest ENA Engineering Document template and was aimed at providing clarification of definitions and the interpretation of certain requirements in the EREC.
EREC P18 is an Annex 2 qualifying standard to the GB Distribution Code and governed by the Distribution Code Review Panel (DCRP). The DCRP establish and maintain governance arrangements for Qualifying Standards that have a material effect on Users of the Distribution System. Annex 2 Qualifying Standards, such as EREC P18, can be approved by the DCRP where unanimity is reached by the DCRP; however subject to the materiality of the changes agreed by Distribution Code Stakeholders, EREC P18 may be submitted to Ofgem for approval.
Further revision of EREC P18 is planned by the DCRP in line with the draft Terms of Reference attached with this consultation. Such changes are expected to be material in nature and are expected to be delivered through a DCRP Working Group.
|Responses to this consultation should be sent to the Distribution Code Review Panel Secretary at email@example.com by 17:00 on 09 July 2019.|
