Renewable energy Electric power components
SINTEF studies electric power components that contribute to a robust energy supply
SINTEF carries out research for Norwegian and international electrotechnical industries, energy suppliers and maritime businesses. We offer our customers international expertise with advanced laboratories and measuring equipment.
DipLab - Mobile short circuit laboratory
This laboratory will be used both in research and development to identify and improve manufacturing unit properties during network failures.
SINTEF Energy Research operates laboratories for high voltage, high power and climatic testing. Customers are manufacturers, suppliers and users of electric power equipment.
OXIPATH – Oxides for Piezoelectrics, Batteries and Thermoelectrics
OXIPATH is a strategic effort initiated by SINTEF Materials and Chemistry with the aim to address key technological issues related to oxide materials applied in three fast growing technology areas: piezoelectric devices, batteries and thermoelectric devices.
FerroCool is an experimental project that will investigate ferrofluid heat transfer. It is an early step towards realizing a novel, efficient and reliable cooling concept that uses magnetic nanofluids.
SAMBA - Smarter Assets Management with Big Data
The project has a large potential for improving the transmission system's asset management by optimizing decisions on maintenance and reinvestments using developments in information and communication technology (ICT) and existing business specific knowledge.
Vector Fitting is a robust numerical method for rational approximation in the frequency domain using poles and residues. It permits to calculate multi-port models directly from measured or computed frequency responses. The resulting approximation has guaranteed stable poles that are real or come in complex conjugate pairs, and the model can be directly converted into a state-space model.
Norwegian to lead energy research in Europe
Nils Røkke, Director of Sustainability at SINTEF, is the new Chairman of the European Energy Research Alliance.
Finnish delegation visits SINTEF Energy Lab
On Monday 13. March, a delegation of Rectors from The Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences and members of Finnish UAS Rectors Conference, together with Academic Trade Union Leaders and representatives from the Ministry of Education and Culture, visited SINTEF Energy Lab.
SINTEF receives UN award for green leadership
After winning first prize in a UN competition, SINTEF will be leading a project to promote solar-powered electric vessels in North Africa and the Middle East.
