"We've been encouraged by the support from regulators, grid operators, and transmission owners. We see an important role for WATT to engage these groups and inform them about the compelling benefits of advanced transmission technologies," said Hudson Gilmer, Vice President of Power Sales at Genscape.
“Genscape’s LineVision® system, a transmission line monitoring and dynamic line rating solution, is one such innovative grid technology,” added Jonathan Marmillo, Director of Business Development for LineVision at Genscape. “LineVision offers a non-contact method to increase a transmission line’s capacity with dynamic line ratings by using forecasted line rating models and real-time, ground based sensor measurements. It is flexible, relocatable, easily installed without outages, and ideally suited to provide rapid transmission line monitoring and congestion relief.”
