dc.description.abstractThe inspection of transmission lines is to be done annually. It is proposed that a quadcopter is used to do the inspection of these transmission lines. The modelling of the quadcopter was done by studying its physical characteristics and ultimately a mathematical model could be presented with the use of the Newton equations. The control strategy suitable of this project is the use of PD control, which will consist of four control loops combined as one. The prototype quadcopter is able to do transmission line inspections, is equipped with a monitoring system, move smoothly and have special features like stabilizing mode and altitude holden_US
