Abstract

A self-calibrating wireless sensor network (WSN) of radiometers designed to detect PD radiation is proposed as a low cost approach to real-time condition monitoring, asset management and operational optimization in the future smart grid. The principles of the proposed PD WSN are described in detail. Some early progress in the development of subsystems for a proof-of-principle prototype is also presented.
