1. Thermography and IR processing

and analytical methods for smart grids.

a. Description:

Analyse IR still images of selected grid elements (transformer MV/LV), detecting temperature changes due to current flow changes (different load) or due to fault conditions and locate abnormal hot spots on transformer windings or enclosure. Images are acquired from transformer under load. What features / clusters are detectable? Fault / error detection regarding the temperature changes and identification of the relevant clusters / selected grid elements only. How can these be used to minimize data traffic between IR camera (local embedded computer) and central server?

b. Outcomes:

Algorithms, methods, alarm notification, sw program.
