Technical Analysis of Power Flow Control Technologies and Dynamic Line Rating in Transmission Systems

This paper presents an analysis of Power Flow Control in combination with Dynamic Line Rating technologies, taking a study case in which the integration of each type of technology was evaluated individually and together in a transmission system. Subsequently, with the results obtained, an economic evaluation of the implementation of each technology is made through a quantitative comparison of price for the energy generated, reduction in the restriction costs, and investment cost of each alternative. Results and analysis show good synergies between the two technologies in maximizing grid utilization.
