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.
We will develop a national laboratory facility for reliable future electric grid components.
SATS Certification is an association of manufacturers' and independent test laboratories and end user organisations set up according to the guidelines of EN 45011: General requirements for bodies operating product certification systems.
– a vital tool for energy research in Norway
NTNU and SINTEF have built a new National Smart Grid Laboratory in Trondheim with funding from the Research Council of Norway in cooperation with the Artic University of Norway and Smart Innovation Østfold.
The laboratory special in its kind as it enables testing of materials and components with combined high pressure, high temperature and high voltage, with limits 500 bar, 200 °C and 100 kV.
