Learn More about Smart Wires
Transmission operators understand that the demands on the electric grid are changing faster than ever and they will require a more flexible solution that solves today’s shifting needs. This solution must be modular, scalable and easy to deploy and redeploy. A solution that does not require substantial construction or permitting and that has short lead times for deployment will be applauded by customers and stakeholders as an innovative, safe and cost-effective way to create the next generation grid.
Smart Wires™ is the industry leader in designing and manufacturing advanced power flow control technology for transmission systems. The modular nature of Smart Wires technologies provides uniquely flexible solutions to address the rapidly evolving challenges of the electric grid. Our core technologies increase or decrease line reactance to push or pull current away from overloaded assets and on to underutilized corridors within the existing transmission network.
