On-line monitoring of temperature and sag in 400KV power transmission line has successfully been implemented by a novel device using fibre Bragg grating (FBG) sensors. The complete device has been fabricated with aluminum mount connected via fibre-optic cable and installed on ACSR power conductor for continuous two years measurement. This paper presents the excellent results and experience of the tests in controlled indoor environments conducted in Norway and real-field application on installed power conductor in India. Thus, better surveillance of the thermal and mechanical loads on power lines can be possible using this FBG sensor system.
