Advanced methodology and tools taking advantage of storage and FLEXibility in transmission and distribution grid PLANning.
Digital Substation (DS) based on the standard IEC 61850 is rather new in Norway; one of the few pilot projects is Furuset substation owned by Statnett.
Norwegian P&A Laboratories
The Norwegian P&A Laboratories project will set up a full-range lab facilities for safe and cost-efficient plugging and abandonment of wells. The institutions SINTEF (project owner), NORCE, NTNU and UiS, together organised as Norwegian P&A Laboratories, will design and install the enhanced facilities over the period 2020-2023.
FastTrans - Insulation stressed with fast rise time repetitive voltages from high voltage power electronics
High voltage power electronic converters are central elements in the physical infrastructure of any flexible energy system because they enable effective switching and seamless control of the power flow between the different suppliers and consumers in the electric power grid. However, the rapid switching of power electronic converters cause voltage surges with fast rise times that can inflict more severe stress on the insulation of electrical apparatus than traditional stress caused by pure sinusoidal voltages.
FuChar - Grid and Charging Infrastructure of the Future
Norway has become a global leader within electric mobility, and the number of electric vehicles and vessels with electric charging demand is increasing rapidly.
Health risks and health effects of firefighter work
The primary objectives of the project are to explore health risks among firefighters, and to study the dual challenge of exposure to heat and carcinogenic compounds exposure and related outcomes, and how this knowledge can be used to establish preventive measures.
The Norwegian industry is among the cleanest in the world and great efforts are made to reduce emissions even further. To this end, many different kinds of challenges must be overcome, and one often overlooked difficulty lies in measurements. The industry relies on measurement data in their endeavor to reduce emissions but when uncertainties are high, the results offer no guidance. The PAHssion project focus on measurements of one group of pollutants called "PAH", Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. The objective is to develop more reliable PAH measurement methods and thereby improve emission control and reporting. This will be achieved by improved analytical performance and reduced uncertainty of measurements.
COGNITWIN - Cognitive plants through proactive self-learning hybrid digital twins
COGNITWIN will set a new standard for the design, development and operation of the European process industry by introducing a platform for virtual component-based architecture that integrates IoT, Big data, AI, smart sensors, machine learning and communication technologies, all connected to a novel paradigm of self-learning hybrid models with proactive cognitive capabilities.
