Complex electrical transmission planning and power system analyses must take into account the ever-changing demand for expanded capacity, new technology, and reliability and power quality. Generation and transmission asset owners, independent system operators (ISOs) and regional transmission organizations (RTOs) are challenged with overburdened in-house planning groups, a lack of special study knowledge and a backlog of interconnection projects and power system studies.

Our consultants solve for those challenges by developing routes to improved throughput in planning, interconnections, sustained compliance strategies and advanced coordination for the most complex projects.

We deliver successful outcomes through careful integration of effective tools, experienced planners and detailed coordination of outages and construction sequences. Our experience includes long-term plan development, technology integration, reliability impact assessment, operational solutions, new transmission and substation facility design support, harmonics and special studies.
