Dynamic Line Rating
The capacity of overhead power lines is highly dependent on the cooling capacity of current weather circumstances.
Dynamic Line Rating & Hotspot Analysis
Dynamic Line Rating, provides analysis and forecasts for weather-dependent transport capacity, allowing for better predictions for the early detection of congestion and the optimised utilisation of available grid capacity. With Dynamic Line Rating you can prevent and manage congestion of power lines. Hotspots are sections in the power line with the lowest available capacity at a given time. MeteoGroup has developed a weather driven power line climate model to detect those hotspots, allowing grid operators to prevent and manage congestion. With DLR and Hotspot Analysis you can:
- Efficiently manage fluctuating wind and solar energy generation
- Have insight into your grid capacity at any given time
- Improve the customer experience with reliable and predictable outcomes
Operational Forecast-Driven Model
DLR is a pioneering and dedicated operational weather forecast model that helps you assess the probability of individual weather scenarios and to translate this probability into relative line capacity.
Historical analysis to detect Hotspots
With Dynamic Line Rating model in historical mode, weather-critical sections in powerlines (“hotspots”) can be detected. The identified hotspots are typically the best locations to install weather stations in order to receive reliable local and real-time observations.
Continuous improvements to our sophisticated weather solutions ensure better planning, greater savings, consistent reliability and greater data accuracy.
We are very pleased, that MeteoGroup’s meteorological know-how will round off the information offered on the transparency platform.
