PCM-STORE gathers dairies, fish industries, food processing plants, supermarkets, technology suppliers and power grid operators to work towards a common goal: Solving energy storage challenges in support of a more energy-efficient industrial future.
ElMar - Electrification of maritime transport and the ports of the future
Challenges related to the electrification of maritime transport are now being mapped in a new SINTEF project with port authorities, grid companies, energy companies and ship-owners as partners. The aim is to reduce emissions by making the establishment and use of shore power and battery charging facilities more attractive.
OptiNett - Optimal handling of Challenges in low voltage Public power supply
In many places, the low-voltage grid in Norway is so weak that secure disconnection in the case of short circuits in the network or in the customer's installations cannot be guaranteed.
Design and development of modular multilevel converters for large scale grid connected Photovoltaic and Battery Energy storage systems
The Indian government has strongly promoted the development of solar energy in recent years. By 2022, a dramatic increase in solar energy production is expected with an ambitious target of 100 GW installed power.
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.
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
Advanced methodology and tools taking advantage of storage and FLEXibility in transmission and distribution grid PLANning.
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.
