    Abstract:

    There is a growing need for low cost, time sensitive and real time monitoring of cyber, physical and chemical parameters for health and fault monitoring of the electrical grid assets and its environment. Current technologies donít offer the capability to access data remotely, on a timely manner and cost effectively. Advancement in additive manufacturing and printed electronics technologies are growing fast, taking the 3D printing industry rapidly from prototyping to manufacturing. Here, we present low cost manufacturing using printed electronics of sensors, mobile and fixed, to provide ground truth in an industrial environment. Such sensors can be operated wireless and provide continuous real time data and information to make decision about the state of the system under interrogation. Printed sensors technologies combined with decision making algorithms can provide a cost effective solution to the sustainability of the energy industry and its integration of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
