Application of Virtual Reality Technology in Inspection Service Training of Power Grid
Abstract— Virtual reality technology creates a visual simulation environment using the computer graphics technology. By simulating the human body's visual, auditory and tactile real feeling, participants in the virtual environment can obtain the same or similar experience in real world. In order to let the in-depth knowledge of inspectors on typical natural disasters that affect the stable operation of power grids feel easier to understand, and enhance the rescue and disaster relief skills of inspectors which to aware disaster prevention and reduction, we should take a large amount of training. However, subject to site, weather and technical standards limit the scope and effect of traditional training. In this study, a virtual reality technologybased service training system was presented and applied in the education and training of power grid inspectors. By simulating the disaster site circumstance and operation flow, the trainee intuitively understands and grasp the methods of emergency rescue operation of transmission lines, while minimizing the risk of training tasks and protecting the life safety of inspectors.
