The case book Spotlight on Smart and Strong Power T&D Infrastructure spotlights a number of projects sharing best practice in how to meet the challenge to develop the electricity network to become stronger and smarter using different approaches.
For example how:
- Existing and new AC power transmission lines can carry more power by the use of smart technologies such as WAMS and Synchrophasors.
- HVDC lines with Voltage Source Converters can be used for interconnectors that also support the existing grid e.g. by avoiding voltage collapse.
- The use of smart voltage control concepts can increase the hosting capacity for distributed energy resources
