Power lines spanning vast distances are the circulatory system of modern power grids. They present unique maintenance challenges due to their geographical dispersion, as well as their height. Traditionally inspected by helicopter-based methods, they can be more easily and efficiently inspected using UAVs. Inspection teams equipped with a DJI Inspire PRO, equipped with DJI’s Zenmuse X5 Micro Four Thirds camera are able to begin aerial inspections mere moments after arriving on site. Capable of capturing 16 megapixel photos and 4K video the images these cameras capture are detailed enough for fine post-inspection analysis while the live feed will allow operators to see significant problems as they fly. The DJI M600 series heavy lifter platform, combined with the DJI Ronin-MX gimbal provides inspection teams with the capability to deploy heavy, large sensor cameras needed for more specialized work. Powered by the new A3 flight controller, it can be upgraded with DJI’s D-RTK GNSS system for centimeter level hovering accuracy. Two additional satellite and IMU systems can also be added, creating a total of six layers of redundancy to ensure it flies with absolute reliability at all times. Its support of DJI’s SDK allows it to be customized to simplify inspection, from standardized flight patterns to fully autonomous flight, and a base station can also be used to allow the control of up to 5 aircraft simultaneously to make inspecting different line segments simultaneously possible.
