The Benefits of Innovative Grid Technologies

Consentec published this study on how innovative grid technologies can reduce network congestion and contribute to Europe’s Fit for 55 targets. The study and the related scenario show that the combination of Dynamic Line Rating, Modular SSSC and Superconductors reduces the congestion and redispatch costs by more than 90% and the congestion-related curtailment of renewables infeed by 3 TWh in 2030

Unlocking the Queue with Grid-Enhancing Technologies

Unlocking the Queue with Grid-Enhancing Technologies

The Brattle Group quantified the impact that three Grid-Enhancing Technologies (GETs) can have on the grid. In Kansas and Oklahoma alone, these technologies can make room for 5,200 MW of wind and solar generation currently looking to connect before 2025. This is more than double the development possible without these technologies.

Advancements in Distributed Power Flow Control

Advancements in Distributed Power Flow Control                                       

Many considerations for implementing advanced power flow control in real grids have been neglected in the past. This paper breaks down these neglected considerations. It proposes an agent-based power flow control system, including necessary hardware components, control algorithm, monitoring underlying distribution grids, communication technology and protocols, and the interface with the grid operator’s control center.
