Abstract

Computer vision is a quite mature technology nowadays and it is very useful for power system monitoring applications. In this paper, some computer vision applications in a power substation will be reported. The system implemented is able to conduct automatically intruder detection, fire alarm zone detection and substation meter reading. The proposed system requires neither spare contact nor additional transducer. It can be used to prevent theft as well. Moreover, the proposed system is also very useful for short-term and ad hoc power substation monitoring because the system requires neither spare contact nor additional transducer.
