CBRTP at the seminar „Smart Grid technological platform”
Research and Development Center of Technology for Industry was a partner of the seminar „Smart Grid technological platform” under the auspices of the Dean of The Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Automatics, Computer Science and Biomedical Engineering. The seminar was hold on March 30, 2016 at the AGH University of Science and Technology.
Grzegorz Putynkowski, vice-president CBRTP, has presented a very current topic of a drone as an alternative to conventional rotorcrafts, which are currently used for the monitoring of strategic infrastructure for power transmission and electricity distribution networks. The speaker presented advantages of the drone over traditional cost intensive methods used in flown inspection tests.
The seminar brought closer to the novel design the GEOMONITOR drone developed on the initiative of CBRTP and based on patented technology, which allows for increased capacity. It enables transferring of research equipment and an extraordinary resistance to deviations, resulting in precise measurements and ensures reliable data.
Drones used for flown inspection tests of power infrastructure enables easily and collision-freely checking the status and planning of investment in the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity. The use of drones on a large scale is an efficient way of managing network assets and avoiding failures in the power system, said Grzegorz Putynkowski, CBRTP co-founder.
Seminar “Smart Grid” has been dedicated to intelligent power systems. Their function is to provide energy services to clients, using IT systems and at the same time increase efficiency, reduce costs, and integrate distributed energy sources.
