Transfer Capability Analysis

RLC has supported our clients with several transfer limit assessments over the years. Transfer limits define the maximum amount of power that can be shipped from one area of the electric grid to another (usually from generation to load pockets of the grid) without violating the region’s performance criteria. To accomplish this, several different types of analyses are conducted; typically thermal, voltage and stability studies, and are simulated for conditions with the electric grid intact as well as conditions where critical elements are out of service. These studies could be initiated on a periodic basis following many small changes to the system or could be initiated following substantial changes to the system.
