Restore System to Pre-Storm Condition and Validate Storm Recovery Efforts
Using proprietary Exacter storm health assessment technology, utilities will receive industry-leading insights using pre- and post-storm recovery analytics that correlate actual conditions-based health assessments, GIS mapping, overhead inventories, and asset management. One application for the unified analytics is storm recovery. Overlaying storm recovery reports with GIS and Exacter data sets provide a more comprehensive picture for recovery activities.
See Meaningful Before and After Analytics
One utility had just completed Exacter surveys a month before some damaging ice storms. During the recovery effort the utility was able to have accurate information that compared storm problems vs. known system weaknesses prior to the storm. This allowed for meaningful assessments of damage, completion of related repairs, and optimized costs.
Benchmark Your System
An annual grid benchmark provides a pre-storm grid health assessment. The data can be used for proactive and preventive maintenance. It also identifies vulnerable circuits or points of weakness likely to be impacted by weather events. It can be used after the storm to assess damage and to measure storm impact.
Enhance Grid Resiliency and Bounce-back
Weakened, less resilient circuits will be vulnerable to storm and wind damage. Strong, well-maintained circuits will be less susceptible to damage. Vision Analytics® allows you to strengthen your grid at specific points of weakness, making your grid more resilient to storm damage and able to bounce back quicker with optimized preventive maintenance.
Prioritize and Improve Areas of Weakness
Exacter analytics and assessments provide a strategic overview of the health and vulnerability of your grid. These analytics provide meaningful data for identifying weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and specific points for cost effective preventive action.
Recover and Rebuild Faster
In a post-storm environment, you know where weaknesses existed. Exacter analytics allow you to overlay equipment, GIS data, as well as pre- and post-storm health assessments that allow you to target strategic points for priority action. This provides new analytics and insight for driving post-storm maintenance.
Data to Assess Reconstruction and Manage Contractors
In the frantic pace to make repairs, not all workmanship is thorough and up to engineering standards. Vision Analytics provides strategic, specific, and actionable data, prioritizing preventive maintenance to improve circuit resiliency and reduce/minimize storm related outages.
