National Grid chose OCC to develop and support "TRALC2", a desktop application which calculates the performance of National Grid's high voltage transformers as they are subjected to heavy electrical loads.
TRALC2 can be used to predict the performance of circuits in the next hours or minutes or it can be used months in advance to simulate the effects of planned maintenance. OCC delivered the first version of TRALC2 in 2000 and it is still being used, extended and supported.
OCC designed, developed and tested software to calculate the changing temperatures and electrical capacity of critical components in the high-voltage electricity transmission system in England and Wales. National Grid engineers have to balance the electrical load of components to ensure no component in the network overheats. Our solution was developed in a manner compatible with the National Control Centre infrastructure.
