EXPLORE A REAL-LIFE SCENARIO

As a powerful storm approaches, managers assess network vulnerability.

Utility staff need to accurately identify locations where the network is most at risk of outages before high winds and lightning strike. Looking at outage and tree-trimming history on a map, they see the areas prone to outages and those where overgrown trees could damage power lines.
