Wuhan Military Games will use “AI” robots to replace power inspection workers

When the World Military Games encounters “AI” artificial intelligence, what kind of “spark” will be created?

In some important positions of the 7th Military World Games, the first batch of 20 brand-new “AI” electric robots independently developed by my country began to replace the power inspection workers and “take jobs” in power transmission, transformation and distribution. What are the advantages of these robots that integrate cutting-edge technologies such as big data, Internet of Things, and artificial intelligence? What guarantees can they provide for this sports event? Reporters went to the scene to visit.

Wuhan Military Games will use “AI” robots to replace power inspection workers

Tazihu ​​Sports Center, located in Hankou, Wuhan, is the seat of the Executive Committee of the 7th Military World Games. According to the relevant security plan of the Military Games, it is also a key venue with the highest power security level.

In the power distribution center of Tazihu ​​Sports Center, several electric robots are “busy” at their posts. Some of them are inspecting power equipment along the overhead track, and some are traveling back and forth in the pipeline to collect various data information…

“This kind of electric Robot uses transient radio waves and ultrasonic technology, and can read the internal temperature of the facility through the thick iron sheet, realizing no blind spot monitoring. It is also equipped with high-sensitivity sensors, which are more accurate than manual measurement data.” State Grid Xie Ping, a power distribution inspection worker in the Hankou power distribution inspection room of Wuhan Power Supply Company, said.

At the 220 kV Zongguan Substation in Wuhan, the reporter also saw a Robot that can move freely on the ground.

According to the staff, this “big-eyed” electric Robot has extraordinary “eyesight”. Many changes that are invisible to the naked eye cannot escape its “eyes.” It can continuously shoot multiple targets in motion, and find faults and give early warnings in time by analyzing the picture data.

According to the on-site staff, the data collected by the power robot is aggregated in the background of the automation system. The background has brain-like AI judgment and decision-making capabilities. Once the power grid fails, it can timely and accurately determine the fault area, and assist the maintenance personnel to quickly restore the power supply of the equipment according to the preset strategy.

Chen Shuang, deputy chief engineer of State Grid Wuhan Power Supply Company, said that the current military games power security project is progressing smoothly, and it is expected that all supporting power grid projects will be completed before June 30.

Chen Shuang said that the power supply requirements of the Military Games are comparable to those of the Beijing Olympics: not only to ensure that the power supply continues to be supplied with “zero flicker” in important event areas in the event of a power grid failure, but also to achieve “zero perception” of voltage fluctuations and “zero defects” of equipment. “, operation “zero error”, security “zero vulnerability”.

In the past, electric power inspectors had to go deep into the site to conduct uninterrupted inspections, analyze and summarize the collected data, which not only is labor-intensive and low-efficiency, but also may cause errors in the inspection results due to a single manual measurement method.

Today, driven by AI technology, the traditional “human sea tactics” are moving towards “wisdom”, and human “wisdom” has a wider range of uses.

With the successive “employment” of electric robots, a group of electric power workers are relieved from the difficult environment and invest in technological innovation and research and development, which will contribute more “wisdom” to the acceleration of industrial transformation and upgrading.
