Job Description for Power Transmission Engineer

Transmission line engineers are responsible for designing and analyzing transmission lines. Transmissions lines are the cables and other equipment used in power distribution and telecommunications purposes. This typically involves meeting with clients to evaluate their personal needs and requirements, such as power requirements. They are then responsible for overseeing the entire project development, working out a budget, and preparing construction bids for all necessary labor and materials. They must research potential materials and designs to fit system requirements, and they then use computer software (called CAD) to create models and designs. Finally, they will test their designs and make sure that everything will work properly and run smoothly, checking electrical clearances and performing sag-tension analysis.
