As more renewable generation is being added to the grid, utilities are looking for solutions to integrate the new generation without adding new infrastructure. One potential solution is to use Dynamic Thermal Line Rating (DTLR). DTLR uses actual weather conditions to calculate a real-time thermal rating, compared to using conservative assumptions to calculate a static rating. This presentation will provide a brief overview of what DTLR is and the current state of the art, along with the DTLR research presently being conducted at the University of Calgary.
