Pole loading software for dynamic line rating
Keep your network’s operations in lock-step with the pressures your lines will endure, from daily wear and tear to severe weather and increasing demand for clean energy. By building a 3D model of your network, you have a single control panel that delivers about line performance to keep lines functioning optimally in every scenario, and keep operational costs in check – with pole loading simulation just one of hundreds of applications of our network simulator.
Real-world simulations — and solutions
Eliminating 300 hours of manual inspection time post-flood
“Using Neara’s platform, we were able to simulate the impact of major flooding to help restore power to affected customers in a safe and timely manner. We eliminated 300 hours of inspection time and targeted our response to the customers that needed our assistance the most.”

Unlocking 2x network capacity without new infrastructure
“We have found that the temperature our lines can operate at is much higher than we previously understood. Historically, we have had to apply a crude standard across the network. By modeling each span individually, we found that in many parts, the capacity is twice as high as we previously thought.”

Restoring power 3x faster to 1.7 million people after a major flood
“By monitoring water and clearance levels daily, SA Power Networks was able to leave power on for longer for many customers along the river as the floodwaters rose and also restore power more quickly as water receded. This innovative approach, based on digital insights, allowed for the re-energization of power lines within five days, compared with the originally anticipated three-week timeframe using traditional manual methods.”

Identifying vegetation encroachment risks 10x faster in wildfire-prone areas
“Integrating Neara’s simulation functionality into our operations has introduced new standards of speed, thoroughness, and consistency to our inspections that we’re excited to have codified. We believe this will be instrumental in helping us reduce fault risks by more than 50% in our first year.”

Because vegetation doesn't stick to a schedule
Your legacy paper process makes it hard to know where vegetation growth threatens your grid with fires and outages. Virtualize field visits and simulate how your assets will interact with vegetation in any set of weather conditions for targeted management that reduces unnecessary field surveys. The result? More efficient operations — and fewer risks to catch you off-guard.
Protect against weather events
Extreme weather often requires split-second, life-and-death decisions that can profoundly impact your community. Simulating severe wind, heat, flooding and wildfire before they occur gives you the data you need to plan for the real thing. And you can prioritize the initiatives — from undergrounding to stay installation to covered conductor deployment — that enable faster and safer recoveries for everyone.
Overcome clean supply challenges
Demand response is more important than ever. But red tape and skeptical stakeholders are stalling your new transmission activations. Neara compresses your line planning and design timelines while surfacing net new capacity within your existing infrastructure. You can provide your team, regulators and customers with visualizations in weeks — not months or years — while optimizing the assets you already have. And when it’s go-time, there’s no question you can’t answer.
Answer any question with network-wide simulations
Make better, faster decisions with Neara
See how Neara can improve your network management with a demo. You’ll experience more than a detailed overview of our platform — you’ll directly manipulate its features to see how different events impact the grid. Try everything from moving poles to flooding valleys and increasing wind speeds. With Neara, any engineering-grade simulation is possible.
But you need to see it to believe it.
