ITC Midwest NERC Compliance

Location: Iowa, Minnesota, Illinois, Missouri

Client: ITC Midwest

Completion Date: Ongoing

ITC retained Burns & McDonnell to perform a system analysis of approximately 3,000 circuit miles of transmission lines greater than 100 kilovolts (kV) in its Midwest operating territory. Burns & McDonnell will use LiDAR data to develop computerized models of each line with an accurate representation of survey conditions. The models will be used to perform a thermal rating assessment for each line at both National Electrical Safety Code and ITC clearance requirements and to develop a summary of results showing any points of interest. Burns & McDonnell will execute the engineering analysis of ITC's high-, medium- and low-priority lines.
