The Risk of Losing Capacity with FERC 881

Image Block

FERC's intention with Ambient Adjusted Ratings is to increase grid capacity. However, a gain in capacity is not always guaranteed. Utilities have been optimizing their grids for decades and may have been knowingly using optimistic assumptions in the past. Dynamic Line Ratings are a more customized solution, helping increase capacity and maintain safety.

The Weakest Link

Image Block

Just like the proverbial chain an entire transmission line can be limited by its weakest link. But identifying the weakest link is not trivial, since it depends on the weather. Dynamic Line Rating solutions must account with the wind in each span individually.

3,000 GW of renewables are waiting for a grid connection globally

Image Block

It takes increasingly longer for new energy projects to connect to the grid. Already, 3,000GW of renewable capacity is awaiting a grid connection, which would double the world's renewable capacity. Making better use of the existing grid would enable more clean power projects to connect to the grid quicker.

Forecasting grid capacity reduces electricity prices

Image Block

Increasing grid capacity reduces the price of energy, but only if this additional capacity is available for tomorrow, in step with energy markets. DLR forecasting is required to reduce prices for consumers and accelerate the energy transition.

The reason we need to talk about power grids

Image Block

Power grids are starting to become a bottleneck in the transition to clean energy. Dynamic Line Rating (DLR) is a mature technology that can unlock up to 30% more capacity from the existing grid. Grid Raven is improving Dynamic Line Rating (DLR) technology by making it more accurate, resilient and scalable.

Accurate line ratings with the example of Texas

Image Block

The cost of grid congestion in Texas in 2022 was $3 billion. But much of this congestion is artificial and comes from outdated line rating methods. Dynamic Line Ratings increase capacity by a third on average, helping bring down energy prices for consumers. But as the example of a power line near San Antonio shows, there are also many hours in a year when line ratings should be reduced for safety reasons.

Safely operating power lines during hot summer days

Image Block

Safety is the number one concern for all transmission service providers. Unfortunately accidents do happen despite the best efforts to prevent them. One of the factors that contributes to accidents is the fact that transmission lines may dangerously overheat on hot, sunny, windless days. Accurate wind forecasting helps reduce this risk.

Wind prediction accuracy improved by 39%

Image Block

We validated our prediction accuracy against measurements from Estonia's official weather stations. Grid Raven's machine learning model improves wind speed forecast accuracy by 39% compared to the existing forecast. Higher accuracy leads to increased safety and efficiency in Dynamic Line Rating applications.
