Technology Description

The General Line Ampacity State Solver (GLASS) software package provides utility companies with the ability to use dynamic line rating to adjust power production through their grid network and allow for deferment of costly transmission line upgrades or new installations. GLASS calculates real-time ampacity and thermal conductor limits, helping the end-user determine, in real-time, the limiting ampacities and thermal ratings for any given transmission line segment.
