Planning Storm Responses to Prepare for and Restore from Power Interruptions Due to Storm Events - Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Friday, August 08, 2014

Overhead power lines in Boston, MA make up a power delivery system which is used to transmit and distribute electric power long distances. These structures usually consist of one or more conductors and insulators, suspended by towers, that prevent possible interference at specific locations.

Overhead power lines are generally the most affordable alternative for the transmission and distribution of large quantities of electric energy to different, long distance locations. The supporting towers, either lateral or tubular in form, are made up of high standard materials. However, because they are all exposed in the open and carry numerous wires, they are susceptible to the destructive effects of weather and other natural calamities.

Problems arise when strong winds bring transmission wires down, inconveniencing everyone who is supplied by these lines. Storms can damage the connecting lines or wires no matter how well they were installed, knocking the power out. Storm events such as hurricanes, tornadoes, and thunderstorms can uproot trees which may fall on their side hitting adjacent overhead lines. Relative to these adversities, an immediate storm response is required to prepare for and restore power from unplanned interruptions caused by a storm.

ElecComm has continually been exerting efforts to find out the optimal way to design, construct, and maintain power distribution structures to withstand the detrimental effects and harmful elements of nature. For more information, contact us.
