Integrating Terrestrial LiDAR into Substation Operations: A Case Study
Authors: Daniel Michalec, darren johnson, Joe Moore
Between recent advancements in 3D data acquisition & visualization, terrestrial LiDAR can afford tremendous benefit to Electric utilities. American Electric Power undertook a process to vet/integrate 3D scanning data for their Substation operations. By applying this technology to a variety of sites, AEP learned a wealth of information on: safety, AR/VR, design, 4D scheduling, and visualization. This presentation will focus on the approach, challenges, & successes of this year long effort.
