Fundamentals of Transmission Structure Design, October 10-11, 2019 in Houston, TX
This one-and-a-half-day course is designed to provide an introduction to transmission line concepts, definitions, and common design practices while infusing the technical tools needed to perform the work with the design concepts (PLS CADD Suite, MFAD, etc.) The first day will cover an introduction to transmission lines, electrical characteristics of lines, routing and structure spotting, conductor, hardware, and material information, and structure loading. The second day will pertain to electrical clearances, code requirements, structure spotting (ruling span vs. finite element), foundation design, and construction methods.
- Discuss what conductors are used based on weather conditions, tensions, & electric loadings
- Identify the basics of ruling span design and structure spotting techniques
- Review physical transmission line design and the software used to perform analysis
- Examine and understand all parts, pieces, hardware, etc. of a transmission line.
- Review the basic concepts of transmission structure foundation design

Landon Schulze, PE, President, ASEC Inc.
Mr. Schulze earned his B.S. in civil engineering from Texas A&M University in 2006. Since then he has worked exclusively in the power delivery industry performing detailed structural design of transmission lines, transmission structures, and substation structures. Mr. Schulze’s early experience was as a consultant performing detailed EPC projects. Mr. Schulze continued his experience serving utilities and leading project execution work on over 300 miles of 345kV double circuit lattice tower design.
In 2017, Mr. Schulze joined ASEC as a project manager and moved on to become President of ASEC Inc leading the company in project management, business development, internal employee professional development, proposals, budget and goal setting for the company.
Ben Averill, PE, Sr. Engineer, ASEC Inc.
Mr. Averill earned his M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Wyoming in 2011 and B.S. in 2008. He received his California PE in 2013. Since then he has worked on a multitude of projects in the power delivery industry. His experience includes: designing greenfield transmission interconnects to deliver renewables to the grid, analysis and mitigation of existing structures in support of facility ratings assessments, and the rebuild of several transmission lines across the west mostly in mountainous areas. He has worked on projects incorporating transmission and distribution ranging from 4 to 345 kV. Most recently his work has included brownfield rebuilds of transmission lines. This includes analysis and mitigation of single pole structures and entire lines.
