Optimized Forecasting Solution for Advanced Overhead Line Demonstration.

A new technology that predicts how much power a transmission line can carry will be demonstrated and evaluated for its potential in reducing transmission bottleneck challenges. About 15 weather sensors will be installed on NYPA lines along the 70-mile Moses-Wills-Plattsburgh transmission circuit and the WindSim Power Line Optimization Solution (WPLS) system will be demonstrated on a NYPA server.


New Software Tool Boosts Utility Transmission Capacity

A wind power plant study initiated in 2010 by Idaho National Laboratory (INL) and the Wind Energy Technologies Office sought to explore how transmission lines, when cooled by the wind, are capable of handling more electricity. The research resulted in the development of a new software tool: General Line Ampacity State Solver (GLASS), which offers the ability to blend data from weather monitors and electric utility systems with weather analysis algorithms enhanced by computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
