SDU Charges drone on high voltage-line

Associate professor Emad Ebeid and his Diii research group from the SDU Drone Center have for the first time in the world succeeded in connecting a drone directly to a high-voltage line with 150,000 volts in a test in central Odense, where it has taken new energy for its battery from the line.

The result opens for the use of drones for both inspection and other tasks directly on the 7000 km of high voltage lines. Thus, the national grid can be utilized to a greater extent than today, which can be of decisive importance for the green transition and the expansion of e.g. the wind turbine area in Denmark.
