Ampacimon is a provider of such a technology, in the form of grid monitoring solutions that enable smarter operation and planning of grids.

Our systems increase visibility of the electrical and physical characteristics of overhead power lines and underground cables.

Real-time and forecast values of line capacity provided by our systems are used by grid operators around the world.

In this tutorial, we will introduce application examples of grid edge technologies for dynamic line rating, line load monitoring and control, based on actual projects experiences of various grid operators.

It is recommended to attend this tutorial if you want to know how to demonstrate the benefits of such technologies to grid operators.
