Eratost Technologies’ power line data processing services enable efficient and accurate analysis of transmission line acquisition results. Eratost services support major energy service providers worldwide in monitoring vegetation invasion problems and provide information on how to mitigate the risks posed by costly blackouts, penalties, and charges to the authorities.
Power utility service providers use the Eratost service to:

LiDAR Data Classification
We classify all power line data processing services functions according to customer requirements. In general, the characteristics to be classified are:
Eratost uses the latest LiDAR data acquisition technology to develop airline models, structures, terrain, and vegetation properties. Eratost 3D corridor mapping provides valuable information for public energy services in relation to cable routing, vegetation invasion, and kink profile. We help in the development of high-precision three-dimensional measurements of the infrastructure for land, vegetation and electrical services.
All planimetric features are extracted from ortho and LIDAR data via the corridor route. From this, Eratost assigns the 3D heights to each characteristic based on the classified data.
Using the models developed by Eratost Technologies, which provide a high and precise visualization of the features extracted from the point cloud data, energy service providers can calculate line classifications, element drop, and voltage. Three-dimensional models represent measurements “as they are constructed” that map the relationship between all-natural and artificial features. In addition, the impact of weather conditions on the condition and performance of the power line is calculated to get an accurate representation “on land”.
The penetration into the vegetation can lead to business interruptions. The LiDAR services from Eratost offer energy service providers a cost-effective, efficient and accurate method for monitoring transmission lines and the surrounding vegetation.
Using the classified data from the point cloud and the overhead contact lines, we run our custom tool to determine the location of the vegetation where the cables are approached within the permitted range specified by the customer. Eratost provides power line processing service providers with information on the hazard location with classified information. Our models allow utility companies to create damage mitigation plans to solve immediate problems and proactively plan long-term vegetation management along the corridors to avoid future interruptions and blackouts.
Eratost uses PLS CADD software to model in 3D. We carry out analyses and simulations in energy networks for different climatic conditions and conductor materials. From the classified LiDAR points, Magnasoft exports all individual entity classes (soil, vegetation, cables, and structures) into the XYZ files and then imports all entity classes, the cable connection and the upper structure to create the PLS models. CADD power line.
With our many years of experience in the power line data processing modeling, we create customized reports according to the requirements of the power line data processing service provider.
