Note: Storm Vulnerability Assessment has been moved to the Mature Lifecycle Phase.
The Storm Vulnerability Assessment solution is used to assess the impact of major storms on the electric distribution network and where to reinforce the electric network to minimize that impact. These electric network vulnerabilities are calculated using risk factors like outage history, open maintenance tickets, and tree trimming schedule.
This solution provides a sample geodatabase and geoprocessing model to identify vulnerable sections along the electric distribution network. After reviewing the model, you can configure it for your utility data and any additional vulnerability factors. The result can then be shared with the planning and operations departments to help improve reliability and prioritize capital improvement projects.
Storm Vulnerability Assessment requires specific technical experience and software.
