Transmission Line Monitoring & Dynamic Line Ratings
Genscape’s LineVision Transmission Line Monitoring and Dynamic Line Rating system provides transmission operators with complete real-time visibility on critical lines. This service is the gold standard in wide-area transmission system monitoring, accurately capturing physical line data, including conductor clearance/sag, line loading (current), conductor temperature, thermal rating, VARs, voltage excursions, and conductor horizontal displacement (blowout).
Transmission Operators can use LineVision to enhance operational visibility on key lines, drive improved contingency rating decisions, and implement Dynamic Line Rating for enhanced asset utilization. Dynamic Line Ratings have been shown to improve transmission network reliability, relieve power line congestion, and safely permit 15 to 25 percent more power to be moved over existing circuits vs. static ratings.
- Solve renewables integration and congestion issues with Dynamic Line Rating
- Gain operational flexibility to schedule and reliably manage outages and avoid triggering Special Protection Schemes
- Gain real-time visibility on line conditions/threats, including icing, galloping, blowouts, and conductor tampering
- Wide area monitoring system to accurately monitor voltage, VARs, current, and ampacity

Transmission Conductor Assessment
Do you have questions or concerns about specific lines, spans or sections? Need to validate whether they are operating within clearance, temperature, or rating limits? Need to anchor or tighten PLS-CADD and TL-Pro Models with as-is measurements?
The Transmission Conductor Assessment Service offers a powerful yet flexible tool to validate critical line parameters without requiring an outage, ground crews, or equipment. LineVision systems are deployed for up to 90 days to capture a full range of data over different operating and environmental conditions.
- Perform due diligence on physical line behavior to inform key planning/engineering decisions
- Resolve uncertainties about lines of concern with "ground-truthed" data
- Tighten PLS-CADD and TL-Pro model accuracy with as-is measurements
- Intelligently and confidently prioritize capital projects
- Installation, calibration, and removal of patented ground-based monitoring equipment
- Comprehensive report analysis of conductor behavior, authored by Genscape's transmission engineers
- Complete dataset of conductor parameters, including ambient wind/temperature during assessment period
- Secure web-based interface for real-time monitoring of conductor parameters
