Please join the IEEE Chattanooga PES Chapter to hear about an utility's experience with AC interference between pipelines and power lines. In this talk the speaker describes engineering studies done for a major natural gas pipeline upgrade in an urban area in shared corridors with Utility’s HV and EHV lines. The speaker will describe a probabilistic approach to pipeline safety implemented by BC Hydro, as well as the current state of the pipeline and powerline electrical coordination standards used in North America.
Mazana Armstrong is a Specialist Engineer and an Engineering Team Lead with BC Hydro Engineering, specializing in high voltage and extra high voltage overhead transmission lines.
