An assessment of network damages.
The project will research, specify and deliver a prototype solution to allow distribution network overhead line damage information to be captured quickly and accurately from site and transferred to a central system to facilitate a rapid assessment of the damage sustained by the network. This data will also be accessible to outlying offices and field based restoration teams to optimise the restoration process. Both the technical requirements and business process requirements will be investigated to give a sound system architecture and delivery platform. It will enable more effective identification and location of faults and more effective repair of primary assets and restoration strategies in the event of extensive network damage resulting from severe weather events.
