On 14th January, currENT hosted the third webinar in its Accelerating the Energy Transition series, building on the first two webinars on ‘Optimised Power Grids for a Clean and Green Future‘, and ‘The Role that Direct Current (DC) Grids Can Play

This webinar focused on the applications of Dynamic Line Rating and its benefits to create a more optimised and resilient grid.

Power line monitoring is an integral part of the future grid. It helps with RE integration and market facilitation by increasing grid capacity. By visualizing system/component limits, we can also operate our system more safely under changing climatic conditions.

Balint Nemeth, Head of High Voltage Laboratory at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, described the benefits of DLR to increase cross-border capacity, lower energy prices, higher social welfare, and much less redispatching inside the country, using the FARCROSS project as an example.
