Greater utilisation of existing transmission lines
With an increasing current flow,...
The volume of electricity generated by wind energy and photovoltaic systems is increasing in the German power grid. This electricity has to be transported over long distances to urban areas and industrial centres. Newly developed high-temperature conductors now offer a way of increasing the maximum power capacity that can be transmitted through existing power lines. The BINE Projektinfo brochure entitled "The hotline in the grid" (13/2016) presents the new transmission lines. With a comparable conductor cross-section, these can almost double the transport capability of existing transmission lines.
