Power Intelligence: Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson Airport and Georgia Power Case Study

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: On December 17, 2017, at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, a component failure in the airport’s extensive underground power delivery network coupled with HJAIA’s backup generation not working resulted in an 11-hour outage delaying hundreds of flights. To help prevent similar outages, Georgia Power selected a continuous surveillance and early warning system from Power Intelligence, LLC that uses thermal imaging cameras and advanced image processing software.

Over 100 cameras continuously measure hundreds of critical components and connections running beneath the airport’s 4,700-acre footprint. Specialized software interprets the images with algorithms that provide advanced warning of degrading conditions and failing components.
