Introduction to the Drone Ecological Red Line
The ecological red line can generally be easily achieved using consumer grade drones. At the beginning of the design of consumer grade drones, complex power system environments were not considered, and electromagnetic interference near towers and transmission lines can have a significant impact on ordinary drones. However, the practical experience of power engineers in this process has a close driving effect on the evolution of industrial grade drones. After the drone is added to the power inspection process, inspectors can manipulate the drone on the ground to obtain a better observation perspective. The visible light camera carried by the drone can observe, shoot, and record the operation status of components such as grounding wires, towers, hardware, insulators, and the growth of trees in the line corridor, geographical environment, and crossing situations. For those "hidden diseases" that are difficult to determine with the naked eye, drones can also use infrared thermal imaging cameras to take photos of wire connectors, tension tubes, jumper clamps, grounding wire clamps, hardware, insulators, etc. on the line, analyze the data, and determine whether they are normal. Many power lines in Xinjiang are located on the Gobi Desert, making it difficult for vehicles to enter and exit. Choosing drones can also solve this traffic problem; In a more extreme situation, when inspecting lines erected in mountainous areas, workers often need to spend two to three hours climbing the mountain first, which consumes a lot of energy. Afterwards, they also need to climb towers, carry out maintenance on the lines, and the work intensity is very high. After using the drone, inspectors can control the drone to fly high above the mountain for inspection, saving time and energy in mountain climbing and improving efficiency.
