Optimising transmission capacity: How power flow control can help
A rapidly changing generation mix and evolving power consumption patterns have made today’s electric grid extremely difficult to manage. Large-scale and community-based renewables seek to quickly and seamlessly connect to the grid. Simultaneously, customers’ use patterns are changing with the uptake of electric vehicles and the electrification of other residential and commercial energy demands like heating.
Utilities globally are demanding more economic, flexible solutions to these challenges. At the same time, industry experts are drawing attention to the fact that global power grids were built without ‘valves’ to control the flow of power and ensure electricity transmits efficiently.
Frontrunner utilities have recognised it is time for a new paradigm for designing and managing their grids. Smart Wires solutions provide the first highly intelligent ‘valve’ for transmission grids.
Join the webinar to learn more about how European utilities are changing the way they plan and operate their grids by using Smart Wires power flow control to capture excess network capacity.
