Abstract
The increased dependency on electricity of modern society makes reliability of power transmission systems a key point. This goal can be achieved by continuously monitoring power grid parameters, so possible failure modes can be predicted beforehand. The deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and new low-cost sensors eases this task. This paper presents a self-powered IoT solution for real-time monitoring of different parameters of a high-voltage substation connector. This new family of...
