System-Wide Distribution Evaluation
Contracted by the City of Anadarko, Oklahoma, CEC performed a system-wide evaluation of their distribution system. This included things such as an inventory, creating a system map, a physical and electrical evaluation, and recommending and designing system improvements.
Using bluetooth sub-meter accuracy GPS devices, CEC inspectors inventoried the RUS standard and any equipment attached to the pole, and collected GPS locations for existing equipment. We then created an electrical map of Anadarko’s system and used it to evaluate its health, including load flow, short circuit analysis voltage drop study, and sectionalizing study.
Incorporating findings of both the physical and electrical evaluations, we designed projects to complete the recommended work using RUS Standards.
