Abstract

The Power System Integrity project aims to notify power companies automatically of the location of broken or sagging distribution lines. The monitoring system is made up of two parts: the line devices that monitor problems and the centralized computer polling those devices. The line device involves four main components: power source, height detector, internal control, and communication. This project involved building system using plans from previous groups along with added design aspects.
