Artificial intelligence improves power transmission

To integrate the usually volatile renewable sources into energy supply, capacities of the power grid have to be increased. The need for new lines can be reduced by better utilization of existing lines as a function of weather conditions. To this end, researchers work on self-learning sensor networks to model the cooling effect of weather based on real data within the "PrognoNetz" project.
