Researchers from Inner Mongolia University Describe Findings in Optoelectronics (A novel sensing system for monitoring power lines)

August 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Electronics Newsweekly -- Investigators publish new report on Optoelectronics. According to news originating from Hohhot, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "In this work, we use a capacitance sensing technology to design an online monitoring system for power lines."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Inner Mongolia University, "By the theoretical analysis and simulation of a plurality of coplanar metal line electrode fields and capacitors, as well as the freezing tests of the system in low temperature, the system could be powerful for monitoring the ice thickness of power lines. We found out that the capacitance can be formed due to the metal electrode changes if the sensor is merged into ice coatings of analog conductors."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Especially, the system possesses a simple structure, high accuracy, readily installation, and low costs."
