Electrical network monitoring using unmanned aircraft equipment (drones, UAV) provides major advantages over more conventional methods.
High maneuverability, ability to follow a flight plan, the small size of the unit, high resolution, low cost flight, the human operator outside the risk area, large area coverage, etc. – are important factors in choosing of such a method for investigation performed on power lines.
By using infrared cameras inspections can be performed for determining the points of risk and quality inspection works.
Applicability for electrical network monitoring using drones:
- Equipment quality inspection;
- Determination of risk points;
- Visibility determination;
- Updating routes;
- Construction progress stage;
- Preliminary analysis of land;
