Xinhua Xining Jan. 15 (Xinhua correspondent Peter Woo on) an unmanned helicopter the morning of 14 from 3400 meters above sea level in Qinghai Lake, a slowly rising on the ground, hanging stopped at a transmission tower at the top, while video images transmitted to the ground on a display device. This marks the first time in Qinghai successful test flight unmanned helicopter patrol line.
recent years, with Qinghai network structure optimization and upgrading, high voltage, large cross-section, multi-split, long block away from the high towers and so on to the line tour many challenges, with the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau harsh natural environment, the traditional manual inspection has been very difficult to meet the power needs of security and stability. In response to this situation, Qinghai power company introduced this year for the first time an unmanned helicopter patrol in the Qinghai-line system, has received preliminary test was successful.
Qinghai Electric Power Company, director of information technology, said Wang East, as the helicopter safe, accurate, efficient, etc., overhead transmission lines has become a modern ideal inspection tool, its development and application will greatly enhance the operation and management of the plateau level of transmission lines.
It is understood that the unmanned helicopter main transmission line system, the use of model aircraft technology platform, modern electronics, computers, communication, monitoring and control, remote sensing, remote viewing technology combine in the shoot by remote control model aircraft flight ground lead to the transmission, fittings, insulators and towers to monitor corrosion and contamination. Transmission line using unmanned helicopter, in line inspection to improve quality and efficiency, reduce work intensity and improve the working environment operating personnel will play a positive role.
