Abstract

This paper describes the design of a system for measuring electrical field using distributed sensors that have wireless communication capability. The design includes development of the sensor node hardware, the communication protocol and software. The major constraint for the system is to minimize the interference with the electrical field that is measured, which was one of the reasons for choosing wireless rather than wired connectivity between the sensors. The system was tested with 13 sensor nodes, however, it is designed to be scalable for more. A possible application is to measure the electric field under high voltage lines for diagnostic or monitoring purposes.
