Transmission lines are designed to transmit and supply continuous and reliable power. With a growing world population and an increasing share of renewables in our power system, our power grids capacity and resilience are a growing challenge for Transmission System Operators all over the world. Increased power production by renewables can lead to congestions in the grid, resulting in curtailment of green power. Higher demands for power and the need for security of supply may interfere with required maintenance schedules. Ambitious time-to-energize planning for a new or extended transmission track might lead to huge additional costs. On top of this our power systems are also subject to natural disasters and planned human attacks.
DNV GL’s Emergency Restoration System is a low-cost investment and the ideal solution to mitigate operational and financial risks.
