The aim of this project is to develop a model to enable us to forecast the impact of different weather conditions on our assets. The scope of the project will include analyses of low voltage and high voltage (up to 11kV) underground cable and overhead line faults, in relation to weather conditions, in the three license areas (EPN, LPN and SPN).
The key weather data that will be analysed will include: (1) precipitation, (2) wind speed and direction, (3) lightning and (4) ice accretion.
Success criteria for the project are defined below:
(1) Better correlation between observed number of faults and the forecast impact of weather condition on faults.
(2) A reduction in non-utilisation of staff on standby
