Extending a Geometric Network for Transmission
Track: Electric Utilities
Authors: Grady Ross
Transmission GIS has a history of supporting asset management. Schematics have been the predominate method of modeling electrical flow from generation to distribution. Alabama Power Transmission has initiated a geometric network model of lines and subs to more accurately represent challenges as a result of outages, fault current load and customer reliability. This presentation will discuss the experiences and development of a transmission connected model from generation to distribution.
