The existing grid infrastructure is often insufficient to handle power flows from new large-scale renewable generation connecting at new sites. To avoid generation curtailment, utilities would traditionally build new lines or upgrade existing lines. However, this can be expensive and take several years to complete. With Smart Wires solutions, network owners can incorporate new generation by utilizing the spare capacity that exists on today’s network. In addition, Smart Wires’ innovative power flow technology enables operators to effectively manage the intermittent flows associated with renewable resources.
