In the past, traditional power grids often reserved too much safety capacity due to safety considerations, resulting in low transmission efficiency of power grids. In addition to the low transmission efficiency, the traditional grids also cause inconvenience due to the lack of real-time monitoring systems. When natural disasters or anomalies occur, it is necessary to find out the accident point by human patrol towers.
If we can know various parameters instantly, such as line temperature, line current, ambient temperature, wind speed, etc., we can use the data to calculate the maximum load current, then substantially increase the transmission efficiency. If an integrated smart system is available, power companies can save a lot of manpower and time, and the value of transmission line can be enhanced
With the development of science and technology and many experts’ and scholars’ researches, the various environmental information on power transmission lines or towers can be used to produce the most appropriate scheduling and maintenance recommendations through sophisticated calculations, so as to improve transmission efficiency and prevent electricity tower collapse, reduce the power loss and so on.
Besides, The movement toward automation and ICT-based smart grids is an inevitable trend in the development of the global power grid. After years of research, Gridwell has developed a wireless monitoring system that can operate stably in the extreme environment of EHV transmission lines, which can measure the line current, temperature, sag, etc. of power transmission lines in real time, as well as the vibration and tilt of towers. And immediately transmit back the data to the cloud analysis platform to provide dynamic thermal capacity computing, transmission and distribution advice and other services.
