Experts are looking to increase capacities and integrate renewable sources into the energy supply. To achieve that integration, utilities need to build new lines or improve the output of existing lines. Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) are working on transmission line monitoring and self-learning sensor networks. "This AI-based network will ensure optimal utilization of existing power grids at any time by adapting operation to the weather conditions. Bottlenecks can be overcome," says Wilhelm Stork, head of the Microsystem Technology Group of KIT's Institute for Information Processing Technology (ITIV).
