CORRIDOR MAPPING OPERATING PRINCIPLES
Blackouts caused vegetation growth into power lines and improperly rated lines have cost utilities and businesses billions of dollars. NERC has developed requirements for U.S. and Canadian utilities to regularly monitor the 450,000 miles of transmission lines in North America for encroaching vegetation and line rating assessment.
Electric Transmission Corridors can be efficiently monitored by acquiring LiDAR data and then processing the data through PLS-CADD software to create vegetation clearance and line rating reports.
Aerial LiDAR Scanner (1)
Sends/receives returns using a laser transceiver, receiver and scanner with variable frequency range.
Inertial Measurement Unit – Measures attitude (pitch/yaw/roll) of aircraft every .002 second.
Aerial GPS (3)
Global Positioning System – Based on GPS satellite triangulation, measures the location of the aircraft every 0.5 second.
Ground GPS (4)
Measures the location of the aircraft every 0.5 second relative to a known ground position.
