Basics of Dynamic Line Rating – DLR

Dynamic Line Rating

REF 11126

Objectives of the session:

1. Understand the principles of dynamic ratings
2. Discover DLR technologies available and compare them
3. Get an overview of the various existing data services and understand their value
4. Learn the steps to implement a DLR deployment

We propose the following agenda:

Principles of dynamic ratings and limitations of static ratings

  • Expected benefits of DLR
  • Available methods and technologies
  • Typical roadmap of electric utilities
  • Case studies

Implementation of a DLR deployment

  • Input data
  • Resources mobilized
  • Components for real-time monitoring
  • End-to-end solution

Theoretical considerations

  • Thermal limits and network congestions
  • Standards
  • Span condition (sag) measurement
  • Wind speed measurement
  • Conversion of field measurements to ampacity computations for network operation
  • Computation of temporary overload
  • Short-term forecasts
  • Day-ahead forecasts

Quiz and wrap-up


Targeted audience
