Complex geographical conditions and bad weather have caused great difficults to inspect transmission line of power grids. This work aims to develop a micro multi-rotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) system for inspecting power grid. The proposed system integrates with an intelligent robot and mobile communication networks. The high-resolution aerial images of the inspection line can be obtained to improve the operational efficiency and safety. The time period from the front-end signal acquisition to terminal decoding and playback is 1.5s for condition-based maintenance. The system supports TDD-LTE, FDD-LTE, WCDMA, CDMA2000, and other network standards. It also supports the video input signals with the resolution of standard 576i, HD 720p, FHD 1080i, and FHD 1080p. It is compatible with a variety of transmission formats and codes, help to achieve timely, comprehensive and efficient high-resolution aerial image acquisition of patrol lines, and improve operational efficiency and safety, real-time monitoring and condition-based maintenance of power transmission lines.
