Abstract: We utilize a very small single chip communication device connected to a micro controller and a GPS receiver to create a network of rugged, inexpensive, very small pole mounted devices. These devices or "nodes" can determine and report which phase line is disconnected and also which end of the lines are down. The exact location of the node that detects a break is also reported along with the date, time and an indication of whether or not the line is energized. A computer at the nearest sub-station is capable of actively sending an email and/or text message to one or more power company contact points to ensure that the closest responder is dispatched. A message is also sent to the central power management facility where a downed indication can be seen on a map display.
