Where power lines traverse areas where fires occur, a number of effects are experienced by these lines and, major system disruptions have resulted from wild fires under lines. Attention is also devoted to ways to predict the inception of dangerous fire weather. The steps are discussed that can be taken by the designer of OHL as well as the vegetation manager in order to manage and minimize fire effects on OHL within their managed easements.
This webinar is presented by Hein VOSLOO, former convener of CIGRE Working Group B2.45, "Bushfire Characteristics and the Potential Impacts on Overhead Line Performance" and Philip FROST, expert on Satellite based fire tracking systems. The Technical Brochure (available from www.e-cigre.org) is expected for publication this year.
The registration to this webinar is free for all, CIGRE members and non-members.
