Derivation of Increased Risk Associated With Branches Overhanging Conductors
- Are communities forcing you to accept branches overhanging distribution conductors? When wind or ice storms hit these overhangs will result in greater system damage. Have you had a hard time explaining to communities the consequences of their tree protection decisions?
- Want to know how to calculate the increased risk and the associated increased incidence of tree-caused caused outages under storm conditions for lines with overhangs versus no overhang? Read the article Electric Service Interruption Risk Associated with Branches Overhanging Conductors
- Or if you prefer, contact us to calculate the increased risk so that you can convey to communities the consequences of their actions before, rather than after, a major storm.
