OH TRANSMISSION LINES INSPECTION

Corona is a phenomenon associated with transmission lines. It is created under conditions where localized electric field exceeds a certain critical value (4.5kV/cm). Corona occurs on all types of transmission lines, and it becomes more noticeable at higher voltages and higher altitudes. Utilities try to reduce the amount of corona because in addition to audio noise, radio and TV interferences and power loss corona will damage the grid components.

Worldwide electric utilities are using Ofil's DayCor® cameras to inspect routinely their overhead transmission lines. EPRI, the American Electrical Research Institute and STRI - a Swedish consulting company and accredited high voltage laboratory have published guides to corona and arcing inspection of overhead tranmsmission lines, based upon Ofil's DayCor®cameras

Using DayCor® cameras will assist control:
