Transmission Line (TL) Electrical Project Optimization

A large part of the Brazilian electricity generation system is located far from the main centers of consumption. The Brazilian electricity transmission system therefore has a large amount of long lines. The optimization of transmission line gains great importance under this scenario, since unitary gains (R$/km) result in a significant reduction of projects' final costs. The calculation models developed by Cepel - incorporated in the ELEKTRA System - are now used by Eletrobras companies and by the Brazilian Energy Research Company (EPE).
