Smart-grid power monitoring, failure prevention and detection
• Red Pitaya STEMlab was used as remote power monitoring and failure
power grid failure detection system
• Partial discharges (PD) are small electrical sparks that occur within the insulation of medium and high voltage electrical assets. Each discrete partial discharge is the result of an electrical breakdown of an air pocket within the insulation.
Red Pitaya is a hardware board with a size slightly larger than a credit card, designed to be used as a measurement and control instrument. It can be accessed through ethernet, and it is devised to be used with a web browser as interface. For the capture and generation of signals, both high and low speed ADCs and DACs are included, which allow its interaction with the environment in lots of applications, with SMA-F standard connectors.
