Smart Wires Inc.

Assessment of applicability and cost savings of deploying Smart Wires power flow controls to integrate renewable energy in PJM                    

DNV GL performed an economic assessment of Smart Wires power flow control technology for improving transmission capacity on existing high voltage transmission lines in the PJM market. Results show that if Smart Wires is used in conjunction with conventional transmission enhancements, transmission cost savings of nearly 50% are possible along with equal or better operational performance in terms of power prices, deliverability of renewable energy, transmission congestion and system costs.
