Understand how space weather creates geomagnetically-induced currents (GICs) that can damage and destroy critical power infrastructure.
Know how your location can put you at greater risk.
Monitor real-time electric fields induced by GICs in your system.
Whether you're just getting started or ready to implement a detailed GIC mitigation plan, CPI can help you find the right solutions to fit your needs.
Our team and external partners have extensive experience in space weather, GICs, power engineering and geophysics, so you can be confident in your answers.
We offer a range of solutions from consulting to customized electric field modeling.
GICs are damaging currents induced in power transmission lines from GMD (geomagnetic disturbance). These hazards are highly variable by location due to rock conductivities deep in the earth. Understanding the space weather drivers and geophysical response is the first step in protecting critical assets.
Each power transmission system is different, and reacts to GMD differently. By combining the specifics of your system with localized geophysical models, estimated levels of GIC specific to your system can be made. This gives you the information you need to know what to expect during hazardous conditions.
Monitor GMD hazard conditions in real time, and build mitigation plans to react to evolving conditions. Let us help provide actionable information that is relevant to your needs.
