Abstract

Sensory information is used in power systems for protection, control, operator monitoring and decisions, and record keeping. Because of the importance of instrumentation, the development and use of innovative sensors is of concomitant importance. This article summarizes a few concepts in the area of innovative power system instrumentation. The instrumentation techniques are categorized by energy types: electric, magnetic, atomic, chemical, kinetic, luminous, and thermal. Since sensors detect energy in one form or another, categorization of sensors by energy type is a convenient way to describe sensors. Innovative instrumentation categories are identified for power engineering applications. Because this article is an assessment of innovative sensory technologies, some projected advantages and disadvantages are cited.
