Ampacimon develops innovative « Dynamic Line Rating » (DLR) systems
for transmission/distribution systems operators
Dynamic Line Rating is a new technology belonging to the « smart grid » world of innovations to actively manage electricity grids. It is made of stand-alone sensors installed on high-voltage lines, coupled to software interfacing with dispatching centers SCADAs.
The system consists of sensors installed on high-voltage lines that measure key parameters influencing the maximum thermal capacity of a line (vibrations, temperature, sag, wind speed). It measures the so-called « ampacity » of a line, i.e its true, real-time maximum capacity (which is usually significantly higher than its design capacity). This system also allows to reliably forecast this capacity up to two days in advance.
