Title:

    VRCEMIG: A novel approach to power substation control

Presenter(s)/Author(s):



Abstract:


    In this work, we propose a Virtual Reality based solution to provide a more natural and intuitive environment for controlling electrical operation centers. The research is being carried out with the collaboration of one electric company called Cemig. The novelty of this approach is the ability operators will have to manage the electric system and its electric components by being immersed within a 3D world, reflecting the very true arrangement found in the real electrical substation. Besides, the solution has been designed in a way to provide the operator with all supervisory data in the same virtual environment.
    We have conducted experiments with the electric company operators Mental efforts to understand the reality of the field have been reduced, according to Cemig’s employees. They also claim that a unique environment with all data integrated is very important for taking engineering decisions.
