Genscape's LineVision™ System

Proven non-contact solutions for real-time transmission line assessment and monitoring

Transform your grid's reliability, flexibility, and resiliency with the certainty that comes through Genscape's patented transmission line monitoring

Transmission line operators and planners are faced with the challenges of accommodating increased renewable generation, maintaining reliability with aging infrastructure, and contending with obstacles to new construction.

genscape's patented physical grid monitor
Genscape's patented monitors deliver highly accurate, real-time data on key operating parameters 

Genscape's LineVision™ systems are a proven platform to enhance the capacity, reliability, flexibility, and visibility of existing transmission lines.

Featuring patented non-contact AC-magnetic field sensors, the patented Genscape LineVision system is a complete turnkey solution that can be deployed on critical lines without the need for line outages or installation crews.

Each monitoring system is backed by the engineering and field resources of Genscape – the industry leader in real-time transmission monitoring, with over 5,000 lines actively monitored. Genscape clients receive a powerful and secure web-based interface to view real-time and historical data, including line loading/current, conductor sag/clearance, conductor temperature, and thermal rating/ampacity.

Features & Capabilities:

  • Flexible non-contact system can be deployed on any line without need for outages, crews, or equipment
  • Accurate real-time data on key parameters, including current, conductor sag/clearance, conductor temperature, and thermal rating/ampacity
  • Secure web-based interface to monitor real-time data, configure alerts, and view and download historical data
  • Complete turnkey solutions, including installation, warranty, and a secure web interface

Line Data Provided:

  • Flexible, non-contact system can be deployed on any line without need for outages, crews, or equipment
  • Real-time dynamic line ratings (DLR)
  • Real-time short term emergency limits
  • MW, MVAR, Power Factor
  • Loading/current
  • Conductor sag/clearance
  • Conductor temperature
  • Icing & galloping detection

Transmission Line Monitoring

Genscape’s LineVision Transmission Line Monitoring 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 (DLR) for enhanced asset utilization. DLR has 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.

Applications:

  • 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 Report
The Genscape Transmission Conductor Assessment Report captures as-is historical transmission data, including current, conductor sag/clearance, conductor temperature, and ampacity, and serves as a model validation tool for all transmission-related functional groups.

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.

Applications:

  • 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

Services include:

  • 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
