Report by Brattle:
Goal: Analyze how much additional renewables can be added to the grid using Grid-Enhancing Technologies (GETs):
GETs enhance transmission operations and planning.
GETs complement building new transmission—they can bridge the timing gap until permanent expansion solutions can be put in place.
While there are various types of GETs, this study focuses on the combined impact of the following three technologies: –
*Advanced Power Flow Control: Injects voltage in series with a facility to increase or decrease effective reactance, thereby pushing power off overloaded facilities or pulling power on to under-utilized facilities.
