LineAware™

Situational Awareness for Operational Safety

Help prevent fires and damage caused by excessive conductor sag and blowout in and near your rights-of-way by continuously monitoring the position of your conductors to confirm they are performing within their acceptable operating limits.

Elevate your Risk Management Strategy knowing you have verified historical data for line clearances that can be leveraged if called upon for reporting.

Give your operators real-time situational awareness with measured clearances and horizontal motions, triggering real-time alerts on exceedances to allow for corrective action to protect asset health, system reliability and public safety. Corrective action can include preemptively switching line loading and triggering an inspection or maintenance action.

Module Outputs

  • Conductor sag and vertical clearance from ground
  • Horizontal conductor displacement/blowout
  • Conductor tension
  • Conductor temperature
  • Circuit current
  • MW, MVAR, MVA and Power Factor
  • Presence of ice and/or excessive sag
  • Conductor galloping and/or anomalous conductor movement
  • Local ambient weather conditions

LineRate™

Dynamic Line Ratings

Reliably increase the capacity on existing lines by 15-40% with Real-Time and Forecasted Dynamic Line Ratings (DLR).

Forecasted Line Ratings with customizable confidence intervals can be utilized in the Day-Ahead Markets & Operations to provide extra capacity to reduce congestion/curtailments, integrate additional renewable resources and increase market efficiency.

Forecasted Line Rated are validated in real-time by actual sensor data and are continually improved by machine learning algorithms that tune the Forecasted Line Rating with the historically predicted rating and the sensor based real-time rating.

Module Outputs

  • Dynamic (thermal) line rating (real-time steady state)
  • Dynamic short-term emergency ratings (STE), in a time-configurable manner
  • Forecasted line ratings for hourly, 2-hour, 4-hour, 24-hour or other periods as specified

LineHealth™

Asset Health Monitoring

Improve your Transmission Planning and Maintenance strategies by prioritizing the repair and replacement of lines that are most critical based on the module’s estimation of remaining conductor life.

The Asset Health Module creates an asset digital twin, integrating both historical and real-time data from the target transmission line to compute conductor baseline health from LineVision system data.

Integrating line design engineering specifications, information obtained after a line is built, and real-time field measurements the module delivers an assessment of actual conductor condition, analysis of factors/events which contributed to loss of strength, and projected remaining asset life.

Module Outputs

  • Analysis of historical high temperature exposure and sag
  • Remaining tensile strength
  • Projected conductor end of life
  • Engineering designed sag vs actual post creep sag assessment
  • Galloping event:  Amplitude and maximum tension experienced
  • Icing events: Ice weight accumulation and maximum tension experienced
  • Recommended revised safe operating limits
