TREAD: Transmission Line Planning with Geospatial Analysis

Transmission Route Engineering Analysis and Design (TREAD)
Technology No. CW-19-23
TREAD is a tool for designing and routing new transmission lines developed by INL. It uses a modified version of Dijkstra's Algorithm to find the best path for transmission lines by considering geographical and weather data. The tool automates the tedious task of sorting through information and can save hundreds of hours of manual labor, thus reducing the cost and time spent on transmission routing. TREAD has a more robust algorithm than similar routing tools and eliminates the need for defining computer information to create a route. This tool could interest companies involved in transmission planning and routing.
