Dynamic Line Rating: Expanding Transmission Grid Capacity for Clean EnergyDecember 9, 2020December 31, 2020Around the Web Jeff St. John of Greentech Media outlines the importance of dynamic line rating in developing a clean energy grid. “Tests conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy over the past decade have found similar results, according to a 2019 report to Congress. Texas utility Oncor and the New York Power Authority found average real-time transmission capacity at least 30 percent greater than static ratings, and sometimes much higher, according to analysis from Rob Gramlich, founder and president of research group Grid Strategies. Improvements like these could slash U.S. transmission grid congestion costs, which the group estimates have risen from $6.2 billion in 2016 to $8.3 billion in 2018. “ Read the full article here.
