Lidar utility mapping services for power line inspection

More than 300.000 km of experience providing LiDAR utility mapping services and analysis for power line inspection worldwide (vegetation management, ground and object clearances, PLS-CADD modelling and custom reports).

PLS-CADD

Network 3D modelling for transmission lines at different weather conditions (max temperature, wind, snow).

Clearance distances

Combining LiDAR, AI and custom algorithms for risk detection.

3D network

2D and 3D vector mapping & planimetrics for asset management and new power line works.

Vegetation management

Fully customizable offending vegetation reports for transmission and distribution.

PLS-CADD modelling services

Measuring vegetation encroachments and clearances from simulations and 3D Models of the network at different weather conditions.

The PLS-CADD LIDAR software is one of the most widely used by electrical engineers to design and analyse power lines considering all the parameters that affect them, such as cable material, wind and temperature, among others. In this way, we can use the LiDAR data as an input data that gives us the current situation and from there obtain a 3D simulation of the power line in the worst case scenario (at maximum wind and maximum operating temperature).

If you require 3D PLS-CADD modelling and simulations for safety distance analysis in different environmental conditions of wind and temperature from LiDAR data, we can help you. We have a great deal of experience and a qualified team.

PLS-CADD reports in different weather conditions

After obtaining the network modelled in 3D for different weather case scenarios it is possible to apply different safety distances and vegetation analysis to them and to obtain accurate reports for each situation.

Worst case scenarios on high wind and temperature, icing, different materials… all them can have their own analysis and report to help utilities to manage their network more efficiently.

Formats and outputs can be fully customized depending on each project needs and clients.

Utilization of LiDAR to assess clearances

Measuring 3D power line clearance distances for utilities maintenance

We combine accurate LiDAR data with our exclusive algorithms and AI solutions to measure automatically any power line clearance distance. We check compliances and detect potential risk areas. From the conductor to the ground, buildings, roads, etc.

+99% reliability guaranteed in safe distances from power lines detection and risk reports delivered.

Clearance reports

Once the results from our power line clearance distance analysis are generated, Dielmo 3D creates custom reports containing key information, such as the minimum distance from the conductor to the ground, buildings, roads, etc.

Formats and outputs can be fully customized depending on each project needs and clients.

3D utility mapping services

Dielmo3D has extensive experience in generating full 2D and 3D utility mapping and power lines design of overhead transmission and distribution.

Almost any network feature can be vectorized and designed in 3D using accurate LiDAR point clouds. From fast catenary drawing to highly detailed and complex 3D utility mapping design and network models containing insulators, guy wires, stapling pints, phases of the main conductor, etc.

3D power lines can also be imported into PLS-CADD to reduce costs when modelling lines in different weather case scenarios (temperature, wind, icing, etc.).

CAD profiles and reports

Sometimes 2D/ 3D utility mapping and planimetrics are not the only end product that our client needs for utilities management. Dielmo3D can produce and export any 2D and 3D power line design in many formats and displays, to match each project requirement and simplify our client’s daily work.

Formats and outputs can be fully customized depending on each project needs and clients.

Vegetation management for utilities

Dielmo 3D provides fully customizable vegetation clearance reports for transmission and distribution electrical networks maintenance.

Our algorithms – developed for each new project and case scenario- can identify and prioritize all existing risks at 99,99% accuracy; being a guarantee of a reliability to any vegetation management for utilities programs.

Vegetation management reports

After computing all the vegetation clearance analysis required by our clients ( voltages, distances, materials, span length, etc.); Dielmo 3D generates 100% customized and fully automated reports for vegetation encroachments, tree fall risk or different weather scenarios (PLS-CADD required).

Formats and outputs can be fully customized depending on each project needs and clients.
