Transmission Asset Planning and Consulting Services
Electric Power Utilities continue to invest in their transmission system to support reliability initiatives, modernization, and compliance. Transmission System Planning has grown in complexity due to the introduction of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) and system wide load growth.
ControlPoint Technologies’ team of Transmission System Planners includes Principal Engineers and Consultants to provide the analysis needed to support planning and system studies. Studies include compliance studies, interconnection of new generating facilities, and long-term planning.
Planning study deliverables will include analytical results, compliance verification, mitigation options and constructability review. Our consultants can provide the utility with economic analysis, project sequencing, and future load conditions to determine the best path forward. Our team will provide an executive summary with presentation to utility stakeholders.

Long Range Plans
ControlPoint Technologies is currently supporting Electric Power Utilities in the Northeast where the Transmission System is continually upgraded to improve reliability.
Programs are underway to replace obsolete relays where spare parts are difficult to obtain. Relay packages responsible for circuit breaker operation, line communications, and transformers are moving to the latest technology of microprocessor devices and communications. The upgrade of these devices improves reliability by clearing and isolating fault conditions.
