Objectives A desktop feasibility study and analysis to identify the needs of a weather prediction tool and outline the architecture for the tool in line with best practice. Supporting SIF discovery commencement through additional data gathering, formatting, reviewing and validation (primarily network fault analysis records and grid reference points)Considering the addition of topographical and ground permeation data setsSupport and accelerate the transition to SIF alpha Maximise the success of discovery by feeding in additional data gathering, formatting, reviewing and validation to inform the SIF outcomes
Abstract Predict4Resilience - Discovery Continuity will inform the development of a “Weather Fault” tool which can:Forecast severe and extreme weather events;Improve the accuracy within the current forecasting window;Double the current forecasting window (up to 14 days ahead) and; Predict specific network faults and risks.This project is in place to safeguard the delivery and continuity of the associated SIF project.
