Substation-Wide RF Detection
EPRI is currently quantifying trends of RF signals across a large substation. The project concept is to adapt wireless mesh sensors (see project summary for Wireless Mesh) to be able to measure the local RF signals. The low cost of wireless sensors in the mesh would allow for dense deployment in a substation.
Project Phase: Development
Substation-wide RF surveys are being started to quantify the background noise and typical RF discharge signals from substation apparatus. The photo shows early work in the characterization of the RF signals in the substation.
