The SmartValve™ leverages proven PowerLine Guardian® technology and builds upon the success of its predecessor by further integrating power electronics that enable it to increase or decrease transmission line reactance. Designed to address a wider range of applications and network challenges than the PowerLine Guardian, the SmartValve can synthesize a variable capacitance or inductance. These units are typically installed on dedicated transmission towers or in banks within or near the transmission right-of-way. Like the PowerLine Guardian, the SmartValve is designed for modular deployment, offering key advantages compared with many traditional approaches to infrastructure investments. Select customers around the world are currently partnering with Smart Wires to deploy this game-changing technology.
