Robotics in Power: Multi-Robot Cyber Physical System monitors Power Grids Remotely

Published on : Oct 15, 2019

Albany, New York, October 15, 2019: Robotics has assisted maintenance and refurbishment of infrastructure worldwide. Power system faces the challenge to suffice the growing sustainable energy need across the globe. Robotic systems have been employed to perform power system operations as they reduce labor costs, improve efficiency, and mitigate operational risks.

Mobile sensing provided by robotics plays significant roles in monitoring power systems such as replacing humans in live maintenance of dangerous high-voltage transmission lines and working in radioactive locations in nuclear plants. Developments in MEMS, communication technologies and microelectronics has positively influenced successful application of microbots in power industry.

An intelligence report titled, “Robotics in Power – Thematic Research” is the source of all the stated insights. This report is the latest addition to Market Research Hub’s ever growing repository

Power supply inspection important

Mobile monitoring of power systems involves issues related to various factors that include sensor fusion, motion pattern, power supply, control strategy, communication and positioning system. Sensor fusion includes monitoring of cable condition using sophisticated sensors that support robotic movement. Inspection robots are deployed to study motion patterns over electrical component’s outer surface and internal surface that contains ducts and pipes. Inspecting robot inspects power supply with help of a power cord that it draws along with it. Control strategy includes object tracking, avoiding collision and electrical short circuit prevention. Communication module is formed between mobile robot and master computer for data transmission. Global positioning system locates the robot.

Main sensing principles involved in power cables monitoring includes acoustics, thermal imaging, visual inspection, dielectrometry and eddy currents. Robotics enable mobile monitoring system capable of maintaining topological representation of the ever-expanding power grid. Acoustic vibrations are primary indicators of energization status of a cable. Piezoelectric accelerometers are deployed to respond to these surface acoustic waves.

Mobile monitoring platforms go miniature

Multi-Robot Cyber Physical System (MRCPS) forms a wireless sensor network to achieve low-cost, fault-tolerant, efficient and remote monitoring of power grids. MRCPS assesses and reports transmission lines conditions that include environmental condition, galloping and breakage, snow cover and vegetation occlusion. A robot team is created using simulated annealing algorithm. Mobile monitoring platforms are undergoing miniaturization to estimate variables about cables including operating conditions, remaining life of cable and failure modes.
