Dynamic Line Ratings, Sensing Tech Changing Europe’s Transmission System

Europe is attempting to dramatically redesign the interconnected transmission system by employing dynamic line ratings, other advanced sensing technologies.

DECEMBER 02, 2020 – During the past 15 years or so, there has been a radical transformation in the way electrical energy has been generated to establish a more sustainable future for the world. However, while wind turbine installations have become expansive, utility scale storage has become affordable, and solar has found its path with distributed applications, one of the main drivers of enablement of all these transformative tools has been ignored, namely an aging and overloaded transmission system.
