Lasers Help Detect Problems in Power Transmission Lines


Russian engineers use 3D laser scanning of power transmission lines from above the ground in order to detect possible failures.

      Laser scanning provides engineers with a large number of locations, each having unique geographical coordinates. Laser beam emits about 50-100 000 pulses per second, and special facility onboard an aircraft registers pulse reflection for elements of power transmission lines. These data help build a 3D model of a power transmission line.

      The technology, developed in Canada and improved in Russia, provides scanning of 200-400 km of power lines during one flight, which is equivalent to several weeks of work for a group of technicians.
