Modular Power Flow Control

Before Smart Wires
Simplified planning scenario predicts future overload

1

This circuit is loaded beyond its rated capacity

2

These circuits have plenty of excess capacity to transfer power from generation to load.

Smart Wires in “Push” Mode
Power is pushed to alternate lines with spare capacity, resolving overload

1

Various technology can be installed on this circuit to relieve the overload.

2

These devices can increase the reactance of the line on which they’re installed.

3

The loadings on these circuits increase as power is pushed off the overloading path.

Smart Wires in “Pull” Mode
Power is pulled onto lines with spare capacity, resolving overload

1

SmartValves installed on this circuit pull more power down this path.

2

SmartValves can increase or decrease the reactance of the line on which they are installed.

3

The loadings on these circuits decrease as power is pulled off them.

Solutions that Scale
Solutions can be easily and quickly expanded (or contracted) to adjust impact

Construction & Operations Impact
Need to reconductor the top line, but doing so would cause an overload

Enable Outage Window
During reconductoring, the Mobile SmartValve Solution can push power onto underutilized assets, alleviating the constraint and extending the outage window past the shoulder months.
