Virtual Neurons from Heimdall Power to monitor key lines in Lithuania.

We are happy to announce our first contract signing in the Baltics! With the help of Heimdall Power´s Virtual Neurons, Lithuanian electricity transmission system operator Litgrid will now expand the monitoring capabilities in some of the key power lines in Lithuania, including ones supplying the second biggest city in the country, Kaunas. Going forward, the insights provided by the Virtual Neurons will enable more efficient operations and higher utilization of the power grid capacity.

Instrumenting the lines in question is part of a pilot project where Litgrid is testing new technologies that enable a higher utilization of grid capacity. This pilot therefore has the potential to bring significant value to both Litgrid and the users of the grid in the relevant areas. More capacity means more feed-in of renewable power and reduced chance of curtailment of wind or solar generation. To the extent that this is realized, this is valuable to the citizens and industry of Lithuania.

“Litgrid is a very forward leaning company, and we are very pleased to work with such a dedicated and professional team on a project like this”, says Vivi Mathiesen, who is responsible for this project at Heimdall Power.

Litgrid´s Head of Strategy, Liutauras Varanavičius, is looking forward to see the results from the Virtual Neurons:
 

“Faster integration of renewable energy sources into the transmission grid is one of Litgrid's top priorities. To increase sustainable energy generation in the most efficient way, we are actively testing various solutions, including the dynamic line rating technology. Heimdall Power approach is interesting to us as the line capacity will be calculated using virtual sensors, simulating the operation of physical ones. We look forward to seeing the first results”
