Committed to a Clean Future
WindSim Power is committed to a cleaner future and focuses on highly efficient solutions to meet the future demands of the dynamic grid infrastructure.
The initial target for the WindSim Power Line solution is U.S. power transmission owners that have identified a need for increased transmission capacity.
By implementing the WindSim Power Line solution, customers can increase utilization of their existing power lines, potentially unlocking billions of dollars in value.
In addition to increased capacity, WindSim Power Line provides critical information about grid infrastructure and enhances grid reliability and safety. Furthermore, it can also be used as a planning tool in the development of new energy projects.
By measuring and accounting for environmental conditions, the transmission owner can adjust the amount of power transported through the line based on actual capacity in real time. This is called Dynamic Line Ratings, which can lead to periodic real-time capacity increases of up to 30% – 44% above the levels set by Static Line Ratings.
WindSim has developed a Dynamic Line Ratings solution that simulates operating conditions in real time using a combination of advanced modeling software and weather data gathered from local weather sensors. The solution is called “WindSim Power Line” and includes software from Idaho National Labs and Computational Fluid Dynamics software developed by WindSim Power’s Norwegian parent company, WindSim AS.
The solution can be deployed as a stand-alone application or fully integrated into customer Energy Management System.
