This work shows tree-related outages to be attributable to the extent of tree exposure. Tree exposure has two parameters, the number of trees capable of striking a line on failure and average arc of power line exposure to a falling tree. A process for calculating the change in tree-related outage frequency arising from management practices affecting tree exposure is developed.
A pre-crisis plan is critical to minimize interruption to your operations in the event of an electrical emergency. Although there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, this whitepaper outlines the most critical aspects of disaster planning and recovery to help lessen the impact of electrical system failure.
