(New Haven Register) A team of environmental engineers from the University of Connecticut has developed a new damage prediction model that will help Connecticut Light & Power better plan for the effects severe weather could have on the utility’s electricity distribution network.
The new weather modeling system uses information such as wind speed forecasts from the National Weather Service, historic data in CL&P’s outage management system from various types of storms, as well as information from the utility’s tree-trimming programs in making its predictions. UConn and the company began working together in 2011 to develop a reliable storm prediction model.
