Optimising existing lines during scheduled maintenance

Facts :

A critical 220 kV line must be consigned for several months for scheduled maintenance.

Constraints :

Disconnecting this line entails large costs due to re-despatch plans.

Ampacimon solution :

An adjacent line was equipped with 4 ADR Sense modules and monitored with ADR Operate real-time analysis software. For 3 months, this adjacent line could take in the additional load, namely an average 40% extra capacity.

Ampacimon solution make possible for grid operators to set up maintenance plans that are much more flexible, less constraining, less costly, and quickly underway.

« Les informations fournies par les modules d’Ampacimon sont constamment prises en compte par nos opérateurs, en temps normal mais surtout en situation tendue. Les limites réelles et instantanées de notre réseau sont ainsi connues.  Grâce à un investissement relativement limité, Elia peut donc, au bénéfice de tous, régulièrement repousser l’activation de parades coûteuses. »

Monsieur Raphaël Bourgeois
