Alan Ross speaks to Ben Lanz

Alan Ross, of the Smart Grid Reliability Alliance, speaks to Ben Lanz, Director of Applications Engineering at IMCORP, about power cable reliability. Cable is one of the largest infrastructure assets that can’t be seen, which makes addressing reliability challenging. Challenges are compounded by limited time, money, and resources, and replacing the billions of feet already in the ground right now is not logistically or financially feasible. Diagnosing faults is a very complex task. Lanz shares how IMCORP has created products and services that address the complexities of cable maintenance and how they use diagnostics to enhance the information they have in order to address the reliability of their equipment.Alan Ross, of the Smart Grid Reliability Alliance, speaks to Ben Lanz, Director of Applications Engineering at IMCORP, about power cable reliability.
