Virtual Reality - Power Feeder

How Virtual Reality can be a unique advantage for training operators in electric Live- Line maintenance and Live power feeders?

Background study

Electricity distribution is carried out by means of power lines. The reliable operation of the electricity distribution depends largely on adequate and timely inspection and maintenance of power lines and feeders, these are risky activities that currently performed by power line operators.

Training of those power line operators is an important problem faced by distribution power systems updating knowledge and skills. For safety reasons it is not recommend to train operators in these dangerous environments often. Since Live-line maintenance mainly deals with the maintenance of an energized line without any interruption to the power line.

For quite a long time, companies providing traditional training to their operators which involves high risk by involving fresh operators in live line training.

To overcome this scenario AATRAl comes with a Virtual Reality Training System (VRTS) for training of operators in the maintenance of Live-lines in a distribution system with Visual and audio guidance that makes it easier to accomplish two main goals — understanding and remembering, friendly first-time user experience.

VR Fire and Safety
Here are three main reasons why

1. Immersive learning
To improve the learning experience of operators by visualising real live-line and feeders.

2. Cost Effective
implementing this fundamentally decreases the expense of traditional training cost.

3. Safety for operators

In Traditional live line training they need equipment for climbing or they need to work on feeders without any interruption to power line.. Most often, the operators climbing the structure through of its ladders or ropes is not safe in early training stages. In VR operator training In which Live –ines set up , power feeders and other components involved in the virtual live-line work environment are modelled as 3D shapes to give them a more realistic appearance.

How AATRAL is involving VR for Operators Live-line and live feeders training?

1. We create immersive learning material for HV Substation operators about the feeder protection relay devices, their purpose and how to operate them.
2. By providing layout of industry specific equipments.
3. Each feeder is provided with pop up inboards with necessary parameters.
4. Disassembly mode to provide the inner parts of the equipments
