Conductor Line Sag in Grid Projects


One of the features we  added recently is drawing realistic looking Conductor lines between towers on our Grid projects. Prior to VentusAR 5.4 we drew straight lines between the connector points on the tower models. This had the effect of fairly unrealistic looking conductor lines as even across the shortest distance the conductor lines sag slightly

New Transmission Models


Today we are making our new outline transmission models available, and users of our transmission domain will have access to all these models. These models have been created using engineering diagrams from SSE so represent real-world towers. They are outline models (i.e they show the outline of the tower not the details of the lattice towers) as
