Digital Engineering helps companies understand, mitigate and manage the impact of the weather on their business. Our diverse team of data scientists, meteorologists, mathematicians, computer programmers and engineers use their range of experience to work with transmission and distribution companies to solve problems in new and creative ways, using its core skills of weather simulation and modelling to address some of the most important challenges that the industry faces.
Digital Engineering has worked on numerous projects with major network operators in the UK and internationally and has developed a range of highly valuable services as a result.
Overhead Line Asset Health – The impact of wind induced wear and corrosion on overhead lines are modelled in order to prioritise inspections and help to justify asset life extensions.
Demand analytics – Electricity demand is skewed by extreme weather events. Correcting for the effects of weather allows distribution companies to better forecast the future requirements of their networks.
Static Line Rating analysis – Post fault line ratings generally consider weather data at a global level. By using higher resolution weather data, transmission and distribution companies can get a better understanding of the risk and resilience of their network.
Renewable Forecasting – Renewable generation creates operational challenges on a day to day basis for system operators. Credible, reliable forecast of renewable generation can help manage this.
