The Power Authority of the State of New York Smart Grid Demonstration Project is a U.S. Department of Energy Smart Grid Demonstration Project which is based in White Plains, New York.

Overview

Demonstrate the effects that Dynamic Thermal Circuit Ratings (DTCR) technology can have on areas of the New York State transmission system where there is abundant wind generation potential. This project could result in a 5 to 15% increase in transmission line capacity to allow for more wind power, defering millions of dollars in capital expenditures on transmission projects an enabling improved situational awareness for gird operators.
