Power lines: The main challenges in terms of monitoring and inspection in Chile

Although they have different specific objectives, power line monitoring and inspection aim to improve the availability of these vital elements of our electrical infrastructure. In general, monitoring is related to the real-time operation of the system while line inspection is a maintenance task (preventive or corrective).   Power lines are a fundamental part of transporting energy to points of consumption. For this reason, optimal availability…
