February 15 Grid Analytics Community - Distribution Pole Failure Prediction

When:  Feb 15, 2023 from 13:00 to 14:00 (CT)
Join the Grid Analytics Community on Wednesday, February 15, 2023 at 1:00 PM CT for a discussion around, "Distribution Pole Failure Prediction" led by Tom Mahar, Principal Data Scientist at ComEd (an Exelon Company).

Session Description:

As electrical infrastructure ages, prioritization of asset replacements has become a challenge for utilities. Which assets must be replaced immediately? Which assets still have useful life left in them? ComEd utilized a machine learning model to examine wooden distribution pole failure data and predict risk of pole failure. This model has allowed ComEd to prioritize replacement of distribution poles considering both failure likelihood and estimated customer impact. This presentation will discuss the project and model in detail.
