This paper describes a brand new method of real-time monitoring of overhead transmission lines. The method makes use of what is called the “Ampacimon” system. The system uses an Ampacimon module, which is a real time monitoring device that deduces the sag by vibration analysis without the need for any line data or environmental data. The Ampacimon system has been proven to be accurate within a sag error margin of ±2%.
