Pipeline Owners & Operators

LineVision PACT™ offers proven real-time monitoring of alternating-current (AC) power flows for optimal corrosion modeling accuracy and pipeline crew safety.

Helping Corrosion Engineers Understand AC Interference

Pipeline operators face the growing challenge of protecting their assets and personnel from the risks of AC interference. Accurate power flow data from overhead lines is an essential input to produce high quality AC models and protection system designs. This data can be difficult to obtain and doesn’t provide a complete picture of the AC power flow dynamics.

Services offered as part of our PACT solution include:

  • AC Study Support
  • Ongoing Monitoring

“The accuracy of AC interference studies and the effectiveness of the resulting mitigation program design are directly related to the timeliness and quality of the input data. We incorporated PACT data in our IRIS and V-PIMS AC modeling system and see this as a valuable and additional method for validating the effectiveness of existing AC mitigation and monitoring the on-going AC corrosion and safety risks.”
