Fault Detection on Transmission Line Using Thermopile Array and Real time IR Bitmap Generation
Devanand Samuel S,  Bashyam S
The main purpose of this project is to find the change in operating temperature range of the high voltage transmission lines and insulators. Therefore it should be monitored frequently in order to avoid faults. In the proposed system thermopile array is used to monitor the operating temperature. The thermopile array sensor is mounted on a parallax servo motor to monitor a vast area and gives us thermal image. This project is made to send an emergency message to the electrical substation through GSM once transmission lines and insulator exceeds maximum operating temperature range.
