Canada mobile project

Project overview

To support the huge growth in new generation connecting to the grid and increasing electrification of society across Canada, transmission owners are exploring ways to get the most out of the existing grid. This project in Southern Alberta involved the deployment of SmartValves in a mobile deployment to evaluate their capability to increase system capacity and improve reliability. The modular design of SmartValve allows for flexible and scalable deployments that can integrate renewables and demand, increase interregional power transfer, lower costs, and improve grid resiliency. The mobile deployment option reduces the need for costly substation site modifications and increases efficiency by enabling companies to install and commission SmartValves within days. The success of this project marks a major step towards the adoption of modular power flow control technology in the country.
