Abstract [en]

This thesis shows how mobile communication and information technology can be used on power industry domain. More specifically, the goal of this thesis is to design and develop a software concept demonstrator that gives operators a better possibility to check the status on ABB high voltage products, utilizing mobile devices, such as mobile phones and tablets. At the beginning of this thesis, user study and information gathering was conducted at ABB Corporate Research Center, Västerås, Sweden and VB Energi, Ludvika, Sweden. According to the result of interview with both transformer monitoring experts and operators, a preliminary use case of the concept demonstrator was defined. By using evolutionary prototyping, the use case was continuously refined and rewritten, and user interface was designed in from sketches to high-fidelity prototype. Finally, a fully functional prototype, which used as software concept demonstrator, was implemented on Android mobile phone platform and evaluated by both experts in ABB and end users in VB Energi.The result of this thesis illustrates the current state-of-the art technologies on mobile device can be used in power industry to help the operators and engineers with their daily work. Usability, accuracy, interactivity are the most significant characters for this kind of industrial used software
