Elia, Belgium, Dynamic ratings
Elia linemen install Ampacimon real-time sensors that will communicate with the dynamic thermal ratings software to control energy import levels over this transmission line.

Dynamic Ratings Increase Efficiency

Belgian energy imports are managed using forecasting software to increase overall network efficiency.

The development of large renewable energy sources has created the need for important changes in the management of transmission grids and distribution networks. Power flows are more volatile and intermittent, which increases the need for information about transmission system capacity while reducing the overhead line usage factor (megawatt-hour transmitted per megawatt of transmission/distribution capacity).
