National Academy of Sciences highlights Smart Wires as ARPA-E success story

Smart Wires was an original recipient of Advanced Research Projects Agency – Energy (ARPA-E) grant funding, which led to the first deployment of power flow control technology on the 161 kV system at the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA). Since then, leading utilities across several continents – including Southern Company, Pacific Gas & Electric, and Minnesota Power in the United States, EirGrid and RTE in Europe, and TransGrid and Western Power in Australia – have joined the ranks of innovators implementing modular power flow control solutions on their networks.
