High-speed fire footage reveals key insights for power plant safety

Sandia National Laboratories

Fire protection and optical engineers at Sandia National Laboratories are using high-speed cameras and advanced algorithms, imaging and analytic methods to understand these dangerous arc faults between two conductors, such as the high-voltage bus bars in a switchgear at a power plant. Flames in an arc fault experiment contain useful information that can help keep power plants operating safely.
