Project Overview

This research study is in collaboration with K-Electric and funded by Ignite (Former ICT R&D Fund). The idea is to use historical data of Aerial Bundled Cables (ABC) and design diagnosis and prognostic algorithm while incorporating effects of temperature, humidity, stress and mechanical fatigue etc. to determine future state of the cables. This would in turn not only predict Remaining Useful Life (RUL) of the cables but also allow KE to schedule maintenance and overhauling accordingly.
