WHAT IS THE MOBILE SOLUTION?
Power flow control in less than 1 day
This tool helps utilities get critical reconductoring, construction & maintenance projects done on time and on budget.
It does this by leveraging proven power flow control technology in a unit optimized for rapid installation and easy redeployment.
By changing line reactance, Smart Wires Mobile Deployment can enable or extend outage windows for construction projects, respond to system emergencies or resolve short-term needs such as seasonal congestion or delayed projects.
Mobile Use Case
"The significant increase in renewable generation across Europe fundamentally is changing the way in which transmission system operators (TSOs) approach the design and operation of transmission systems. To enhance and accelerate the integration of renewables into the Greek power system while preventing possible curtailment of renewable generation in the future...IPTO installed the mobile MPFC technology from Smart Wires. Strategically installing MPFC on a transmission system can lower the investment required to accommodate a higher penetration of renewable generation and shorten the time it takes to bring renewable projects on-line."
MOBILE POWER FLOW CONTROL SOLVES KEY CHALLENGES FACING UTILITIES
Resolve overloads to enable or expand construction outage windows and accelerate the completion of critical projects
Resolve overloads to reduce congestion that only appears during a limited time period, such as seasonal congestion
Resolve overloads from unexpected challenges that occur outside the normal planning process (e.g. unexpected generation closures, natural disasters)
Resolve overloads when permitting or construction delays the permanent, long-term solution
USE CASE: CONSTRUCTION SUPPORT
The utility in the example below could not secure a long enough outage and caused a 2-year delay for a major project. The mobile deployment lengthens the 6-week outage to 24-weeks, allowing the utility to finish the construction.
