In the US, transmission congestion costs $6 billion a year. This has significant implications for grid reliability, generation dispatch, and asset utilization, where suboptimal and inefficient operation trickles down to consumers through higher costs. But as data and analysis becomes more ubiquitous in grid operations, new line rating techniques can improve the day-ahead forecast accuracy of line capacity, leading to more effective use of existing infrastructure.
Join WindSim and Cognite in this webinar to discuss the emerging challenges of the industry and how dynamic line rating, enabled by a contextualized data foundation, will be instrumental in improving transmission operations.
