Watereye - O&M tools integrating accurate structural health in offshore energy
The Watereye project will design an advanced monitoring system that will make it possible to remotely detect corrosion levels
The FarmConners project supports the implementation and industrialisation of Wind Farm Control (WFC) as an additional feature for the development and operation of wind power plants. It brings together actors in all relevant fields connected with the market uptake of WFC: research institutes, industry and certification agencies. FarmConners will coordinate a reliable assessment of the WFC possibilities, promising more green power from existing and upcoming assets for the price of a software update.
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.
