Qingyang Power Supply Company uses drone for towers inspection
In the past, a group of inspectors took more than an hour to complete the inspection of the two towers. After Qingyang Power Supply Company uses drone for towers inspection, the patrol time is shortened to ten minutes, almost ignoring terrain obstacles. "Liu Jinxun, a drone operation team at the Transmission and Inspection Center of Qingyang Power Supply Company of China Grid, introduced.
The 110 kV Zozhen line under the jurisdiction of Qingyang Power Supply Company is located in Zhenyuan County, Qingyang City, with a vast area and ravines. According to the previous manual inspection operation method, the inspection workload is large, the unknown security risk is large, the level of refinement is low, and the hidden dangers of defects can not be found in time and meet the requirements of daily operation and maintenance work.
UAV inspection operations are adopted, and high-definition cameras are used to perform fine inspections on line corridors, tower bodies, insulators and other parts, which can quickly obtain image information of line equipment at a wider angle of view and closer distance. Timely grasp of the operation status of the transmission line effectively compensates for the shortcomings of the traditional inspection method, shortens the inspection cycle, realizes the omnidirectional line inspection, no blind zone, intelligent and efficient, time-saving and labor-saving, and effectively improves the inspection efficiency and operation and maintenance level.
For this work, the company's drone operation team plans to complete the detailed inspection of 120 poles and towers across the line in 5 days, accurately detect line defects, and provide strong data support for daily maintenance.
Qingyang Power Supply Company will continue to make full use of the advantages of drone inspections and carry out monthly drone inspections in accordance with the annual inspection plan. Accurately find hidden defects and provide a strong guarantee for the safe and stable operation of regional power grids
