ROBOT IN POWER PLANT

Presented by: O P Gujela

INTRODUCTION TO ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE General definition:


AI is the branch of computer science that is concerned with the automation of intelligent behavior.

OR SIMPLY
AI is the science of automating intelligent behaviors currently achievable by humans only.

APPLICATIONS OF AI
Power plants Hospitals and medicine Heavy industry Transportation

Toys and games


Aviation etc

A.I IN POWER STATIONS


THERE ARE THREE TYPES OF MAJOR POWER PLANTS KNOWN FOR THE MASSIVE ELECTICITY GENARATION

1. THERMAL POWER PLANTS


2. HYDAL POWER PLANTS 3. NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IN THERMAL POWER PLANTS

The mobile monitoring of power system means the controlling and maintenance of the plant by various automated means from a safe distance.

Mobile monitoring of power system

To solve this task, multidisciplinary efforts are needed from fields such as sensing, signal processing, control, communications, optimization theory, and, more recently, robotics.
The developments in robotic maintenance for power systems indicate significant potential of this technological approach.

The mobile monitoring of the power plant includes various sensors like Acoustic sensing, Fringing electric field sensing, and infrared sensing

Advantages of robots in power system maintenance


Replacing human workers for dangerous and highly specialized operations, such as live maintenance of high-voltage transmission lines, has been a long-standing effort in the power community.

Specifications of line scout robot


The three-axis robotic arm has been designed to reach the four conductors of a typical transmission line . One end of the arm is equipped with a point able camera and the other can hold a variety of tools for tasks such as: >> High quality visual inspection >> Infrared inspection >> Checking the condition of splices by measuring their electrical resistance >> Tightening and loosening bolted assemblies >> Temporary repair of broken conductor strands

Other needs of robotics in power systems include operation in hazardous environments, such as radioactive locations in nuclear plants, access to tight spaces, such as cable viaducts and cooling pipes, and precise positioning of measurement equipment. Therefore, one may expect that the mobile sensing will play an increasingly important role in the monitoring of power systems.
