One of the most crucial elements of each country is electricity distribution networks (EDN). Awareness of accidents in EDN could be very important in the conservation and utilization of them. The accurate and periodic inspections can provide a good service to subscribers. The goal of this project is to fabricate a quad rotor, which can do an accurate and a periodic inspection. The design and implementation procedure are explained. The mechanical parts are designed by SolidWorks software then the structure of robot is fabricated with AL8080 by machining and milling. Then the dynamic model of the robot is generated and based on it the controller is designed. The two PID controller are proposed and simulated with MATLAB Simulink.
