The ice on the OHL’s is an unpleasant phenomenon that may cause serious damages to the grid by forming extra mechanical load on the conductors. The renovation of the collapsed high voltage tower is extremely costly not to mention the problems of the lack of energy supply and availability.
OTLM system can predict, detect and solve ice events. Beside knowing that ice is on the line, OTLM system is focusing on preventive actions so that ice doesn’t build on overhead lines.
In case of ice event, OTLM is also helping utilities to check the actual status of overhead lines with inbuilt camera.
