Inspection and Monitoring Technologies of Transmission Lines With Remote Sensing (Hardcover) (Yi Hu &
about this item
Monitoring the operational status of high-voltage transmission lines is critical in supply assurance and continuity. Given the physical size, geographical and climate variance that transmission 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. This book will help the readers to 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.
- Covers operational and technical principles, and equipment used in transmission line inspection and monitoring, with a focus on remote sensing technologies and solutions
- Organized in five sections, covering power line fundamentals, remote sensing technologies, inspection technologies, fault detection technologies, and on-line monitoring, with a focus 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
