1

This circuit is loaded beyond its rated capacity.

2

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

This simplified planning scenario predicts a future overload on one circuit.

Smart Wires in Push-Mode

Guardian™ technology or SmartValve™ technology can push power to parallel lines with spare capacity. This resolves the overload and uses the same underlying infrastructure to transfer an additional 50 MW of power to the load center.

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.

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.

Smart Wires in Pull-Mode

Alternatively, SmartValves™ installed on the least-utilized circuit can pull power on that line and resolve the system overload. In this case, 80 MW of power transfer capability was possible.
