Thermal up-rating

In all cases PLS-CADD based engineering analysis will lead to either increased line reliability or greater load transfer capacity. In many cases it will enable both. Thermal up-rating identifies costed options to increase utilization.

Using a new or existing CAD model of the line our service provides a suite of options to up-rate the line. Up-rating options include re-conductoring, suspension clamp offsets, additional or modifications to structures as well as a number of other analyzes.

All options will be costed and presented, along with our recommendation, in a final engineering report.
