The Design of Power Quality Online Monitor Device under Smart Grid


Article Preview

With the development and construction of smart grid, more and more attentions have been paid to the detection of power quality. Study the disadvantages of wired communication network, applied wireless sensor network technology to power quality online monitoring system. Introduced the hardware and software architectures, designed the detection node and gathering node based on CC2430 and LPC2214 respectively, introduced the establishing process and algorithms of WSN based on ZigBee technology. Experimental results show that, the system can remotely monitor power quality of monitoring points on the power grid, can optimize the power grid operation, and provide enterprises with a reliable basis for energy conservation and emissions reduction.
