This series looks at how various utility components impact resilience. In order to this we will look at each type of component, one at a time, along any factors that significantly impact resilience, economics or climate change.
In this first paper below we will cover "supporting structures" for overhead circuits, a.k.a. poles and towers, and current-carrying components. The latter includes conductors (cables and wires) but also devices that are slightly smarter (fuses) as well as those that actually include communicating and programmable components (reclosers and switches) and several other categories.
