Abstract

Smart Wire Grid has developed a distributed series reactor (DSR) in collaboration with utilities,
academia, NEETRAC, and the Department of Energy.


The DSR controls power flows by changing line
reactance.


As a distributed solution suspended from the trans
mission line, DSRs are able to control
power flows and increase visibility to transmission assets.


The presentation will introduce the DSR,
review the development history thus far, present potential applications, and discuss the installations
thus date.
