Dynamic Line Rating: Expanding Transmission Grid Capacity for Clean Energy

By [email protected] A big part of the world’s electricity decarbonization challenge lies in expanding transmission capacity for wind and solar power — and according to energy experts, Europe and the U.S. are falling behind on that task. Solving this problem will require a lot of new transmission on land and at sea. But using existing grid infrastructure more efficiently could help as well.

That’s what dynamic line rating technologies do, by measuring high-voltage transmission line capacity in real time, as opposed to relying on static measurements. Using DLR could reduce costly grid congestion and speed interconnection of renewables, according to the results
