  • Modelling and simulating the effects of icing for selected weather conditions.
  • Comparison of modelled effects of icing to known icing observation in the area.
  • Evaluation of design loads for in-cloud icing.
  • Classification of various transmission line routes, according to the risk of icing and executing a first analysis on the risk of in-cloud icing in the Labrador area.
