Brief description and/or other information regarding the project: 
CLASS investigates the relationship between voltage and demand. It would test how voltage control can be used to reduce peak network demands, which could defer or avoid reinforcement, and manage high volumes of DG. It would also investigate how DNOs can use voltage control to support the NETSO. This project uses existing infrastructure, is highly replicable and could be a useful tool for managing the impacts of the roll out of low carbon technologies across GB. In particular, these methods could give DNOs the time to assess the most efficient response to highly loaded parts of the network. In its final submission, ENW changed the sample of substations in the project to focus on highly loaded parts of the network. This improved the already robust methodology of the project
