[Tagging] power lines/cables power

Hi André,

That's an interesting question.
Power transformers can have rating=* to state how many power they can
I see no problem to add it to a power relation like the one involving the
line you mention

Can you explain the difference between your value (7.5 GW) and the value
already visible on the relation (1 GW) please?

Difference between rating on a power=line/cable and rating on a power
relation is a follow:
- On a line/cable, it's the maximum capacity the line/cable is designed for
- On a relation, it's the rating the whole link is operating at

Power circuits relations :

All the best
