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.
geoOrganizer is designed to streamline the process of recording information in the field, automating the workflow to resolve issues and making all of that information searchable and reportable through an easy to use GIS-based dashboard. Users of our field tool are calling it “the most user-friendly utility software they’ve ever used.”...More
