There has been growing interest in the use of dynamic ratings for transmission circuits. This is the concept of varying the thermal rating of part or all of a circuit according to the ambient conditions. A number of systems have now been developed varying in complexity from using macro weather data to online dynamic measurements of circuit parameters. This project will assess current available technologies and how these can be integrated within the system operators display and functional tools. The implications of deploying these systems will be investigated with regards to load management and system planning.
Objectives are as follows:

  • Understand the available technologies for dynamic load monitoring and their capabilities

  • Understand the benefits and risks for different parts of the business

  • Trial selected technologies and evaluate their performance.
