Inspection and Monitoring Technologies of Transmission Lines with Remote Sensing

Book Description

Inspection and Monitoring Technologies of Transmission Lines with Remote Sensing helps readers build a thorough understanding of new technologies and world-class practices developed by the State Grid Corporation of China—the organization responsible for the world’s largest power distribution network. Monitoring the operational status of high-voltage transmission lines is critical in supply assurance and continuity. Given the physical size, geographical, and climate variances that transmission lines are subject to, remote sensing and inspection is a critical technology for power distribution organizations. This reference covers current and developing technologies, equipment, and methods for the safe and secure operation and maintenance of transmission lines, including satellite remote sensing technology, infrared and ultraviolet detection technology, helicopter inspection technology, and condition monitoring technology.

  • Covers operational and technical principles, and equipment used in transmission line inspection and monitoring, with a focus on remote sensing technologies and solutions
  • Covers power line fundamentals, remote sensing technologies, inspection technologies, fault detection technologies, and on-line monitoring
  • Focuses on practical equipment and systems parameters to ensure readers are able to meet operational needs
  • Covers control technologies that ensure safe and consistent transmission operation
