Dynamic Line Rating
Optimise the use of available grid capacity by providing better predictions for the early detection of congestion
Dynamic Line Rating & Hotspot Analysis
The capacity of your overhead power line network is highly dependent on the cooling capacity of the weather. Transmission System Operators (TSOs) and Distribution System Operators (DSOs) face continuous planning and operational challenges and need proven, trusted, reliable and accurate weather information tailored to grid operator’s needs. MeteoGroup developed DLR (Dynamic Line Rating) to address these challenges.
- Reduce grid costs
- Increase available grid capacity
- Improve dealing with fluctuating supply from renewables
analysis DLR model using 10 years of historical weather data, calculating the weatherrelated cooling capacity for each section of a power line and determining the most critical spot for each hour; report on the most critical sections overthe 10 years period to determine the so-called Hotspots
Dynamic Lyne Rating service
provision of observed and forecasted relative available capacity for the most critical part of a power line based on weather cooling; delivered via secure webservice to DSS, including archive function of all supporting calculated capacity values, weather observations and forecasts
Historical analysis to detect Hotspots
By putting weather stations at the Hotspots we can improve weather forecasts accuracy to reach the required accuracy of DLR forecasts
We are very pleased, that MeteoGroup’s meteorological know-how will round off the information offered on the transparency platform.
