In the video we take a small section of a network that has been scanned with LiDAR and build a physics enabled three dimensional structural model. This model predicts the conductor blow out as shown by the blue lines.
We then run various scenarios to check vegetation clearance violations under different conditions
- Changing the wind pressure to increase the conductor blow out.
- Increasing the vegetation clearance requirements to increase the safety factor.
- Increasing the ground clearance requirements to increase the safety factor
- Changing the temperature to model conductor sag under different temperature conditions.
