Thermal Imaging Solution Improves Inspection Efficiency For Power Utility

Source: AMobile Intelligent Corp.

Substation equipment and power distribution grid aging happen. Electric power utilities require regular inspections of aging infrastructure through techniques to detect the failures and breaches for timely maintenance. The inspection scope includes transmission towers, insulator bushings, power transformers, load tap changers, circuits, and surroundings, etc. However, the high workload and poor environments of electricity equipment inspection are issues for utilities to deal with.

Challenges of Electric Power Inspection

Traditional power examinations are conducted by a workforce that is not only low efficiency but also faces rising costs due to unplanned maintenance. In recent years, drones are utilized for inspection. Nevertheless, the immature technologies regarding image clarity, accuracy, and flight security, etc. are the current barriers. A large electrical power utility in Asia came to AMobile Solutions looking for smart, compact, and portable inspection devices to improve the inspection efficiency and failure detection rate.
