Digital inspection

Utilization of new and existing sensors to make inspections of secondary substations more efficient.

Today, inspection of secondary substations in Norway is carried out once a year according to current regulation. This is both time and resource consuming for the grid companies. New sensors, and better utilization of existing sensors opens for better monitoring of secondary substations regarding asset management and electrical safety.

The objective of this pilot project is to test and verify solutions to make inspections of secondary substations more efficient, both by increasing the inspection interval and improving the quality of the gathered data.
