Course Description


The power transmission line design & survey plays a very vital role in the optimization of transmission line. The use of internationally recognized software PLSCADD a better optimization of transmission line can be achieved in short time.

PLS-CADD is the industry standard in overhead line design and is being used by 1600 companies in over 125 countries worldwide. It is the most powerful overhead power line design program. It integrates all aspects of power transmission line design into a single stand-alone program with a simple, logical, consistent interface.

The course will familiarize the attendees with how to use PLS-CADD on a project from start to finish, including survey importing techniques, criteria development, structure designs, conductor sagging, and final Plan & Profile drawing development and plotting. Time will also be allocated to practicing different real projects to give hands on experience to trainees.

The need for new transmission lines is continuous as the demand is ever increasing to evacuate enhanced power generation to the load centers across the country. In order to optimize the cost of project, the transmission line SURVEY is critical, where considerable saving in cost of project can be achieved.
