Overview

This is the final of three Western Power Distribution (WPD) short data challenges! The aims of these challenges include:

  1. Demonstrating the value in making data openly available

  2. Increasing the visibility of some of the challenges network operators face

  3. Increase the understanding of the different ways to tackle some of these problems

  4. Providing high quality and accurate benchmarks with which to enable innovation and research

This final challenge is a unique spin on the traditional missing data problem which considers different scenarios for missing data across the hierarchy of a distribution network (Primary up to grid supply point). Traditional missing data problems typically focus on an isolated time series and often require imputation approaches based on local measurements. In this challenge, we are asking participants to utilise monitoring data across the network (as well as weather and other publicly available data) to solve various missing data scenarios which extend the problem to situations where multiple connected substations may lose data.

All the slides from the kick-off and other information can be found on the LinkedIn group and the recording from the kick-off event will be uploaded shortly after the event.
