On-Demand: Session 2: Smart Wire Grid on Distributed FACTS (Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System) Webinar
Occured on: Wednesday, March 20, 2013 at 2:00pm ET/11:00am PT
Smart Wire Grid Inc. (SWG) introduced and implemented a unique power flow control method via smart wire technology, which includes SWG’s distributed series reactors, sensors, communication protocols and control algorithms. Power flow control is applied on each phase by injecting inductance into each line conductor — change in line impedance allows active and reactive power flow control. Depending on the design, each of the distributed series reactors (DSRs) is capable of injecting nominally 50 µH of inductance.
Smart wire technology has demonstrated extreme efficiency for the overload protection of transmission facilities, participation in the remedial action schemes/special protection schemes, phase balancing on non-transposed transmission lines, and energy cost reduction in the market. SWG is one of the most respected start-up companies in the energy field. It is highly recognized and supported by the NEETRAC and Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy.
