This one day workshop will provide an overview of a collaborative project between Energy Networks Australia and the Australian Power Institute on the most effective ways to conductor condition monitoring on electrical networks thorough Australia.

The training workshop will be run by a project team at the University of Queensland along with current and past representatives from the electricity industry.

 

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES

The project team will discuss the various failure mode of a range of conductors used on distribution networks across Australia and the condition parameters which have been selected to determine an appropriate health index for these conductors. The project team has produced a fully customizable health index calculation tool, which can assist decision making in the maintenance or replacement of conductors. This workshop will share the findings from this project, where the tool along with a user manual will be demonstrated to the workshop participants with a number of in-field conductor case studies.

 

TOPICS COVERED

  • The drivers for the project
  • The drivers for the project
  • The failure modes associated with a range of distribution conductors
  • The main condition parameters adopted for the health index calculation
  • Worked examples using the health index calculation tool
  • Application of the results of the health index calculation tool
  • A review of the various methods used by utilities to monitor the condition of conductors
  • How Drones can be deployed for effective condition monitoring of conductors.

 

BACKGROUND OF WORKSHOP

Energy Networks Australia (ENA) member utilities have almost 800,000 kilometres of overhead conductor in service, valued at several billion dollars. Many of this critical infrastructure are ageing with some already reaching 70 years or replacement age. This project team at the University of Queensland along with a number of representatives from ENA members have investigated the effective ways of condition monitoring of overhead conductor in Australian distribution networks. This project is a collaboration between Energy Networks Australia and the Australian Power Institute, which is funded under the Australian Strategic Technology Program (ASTP scheme).

 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

This workshop will be of benefit to a wide audience who work for DNSP’s in the following areas:

  • Procurement, Asset Strategists, maintenance managers and engineers
  • Consultants, designers and operations staff
