  • Publication number: 20180283955
    Abstract: What are disclosed here are a method and its embodiments to assess the loading of distribution transformers in one area using autonomous drones that can be automatically piloted according to GPS coordinates to measure every target transformer's temperature data or thermal images in one area. The drone has a GPS system and can send its GPS coordinates wirelessly to ground crews' computing device. The computing device compares the drone's current GPS coordinates with the GPS coordinates of target transformers and guide the drone to fly to each target transformer location. The drone stops above each target transformer and use its thermography camera to measure the transformer's temperature data or thermal images. The temperature data or thermal images can be processed to identify overloaded transformers, transformers with outages and transformers with loading deviations that can be considered for load balance.

  • Publication number: 20180259557
    Abstract: What are disclosed here are a technique and its embodiments to monitor the energy usage of any appliances in a house using two types of devices. One type of device is portable and senses appliance status change. Each can be connected to a certain appliance user decides to track. The other device monitors the total power consumption of the entire house. Once the appliance's status changes, such as being turned on, the device will send a signal along with the appliance's ID to the house power monitor. The house power monitor is then triggered to record the time stamp of this appliance's event and stores it in a database along with total house consumption data. With respect to total house power consumption and received event signals, energy consumptions of individual appliances can be calculated. Results can be sent to Internet/Ethernet or a display device and used for decision making.
