Aim of the project was to develop a complex solution providing measurement, monitoring and management in DC and hybrid AC/DC power grids in a form of a robust modular device contributing to the development of modern power grids. Instruments developed under this project included features and functionality of an electricity meter, analyzer and monitor of power and voltage quality in hybrid AC and/or DC systems. Modular concept simplified integration of other process variables and control resources of local system. In context of the project aim, the implemented device enabled high degree of modularity on HW, FW and also SW level. Key results of the project are the 2017V010 - Software for modular measurement system and 2017V003 prototype of the modular measurement system.
Main activity of the project is to provide our partners an appropriate solution in the area of power management in industrial environments. The aim of the project is to develop a prototype of a compact and inexpensive static switching module for real-time reactive power correction, thoroughly test it according to valid standards, to determine its technical parameters in a range of operating conditions and to prepare it for efficient automated production. At the same time the related controller unit will be upgraded so that it can efficiently manage a large number of real-time outputs and to record and aggregate larger volumes of process data for supervision systems (grid, building or industrial automation).
Aim of the project is a development of the complete system for location of asymmetric faults in medium voltage networks (V-dip system). The system utilizes distributed measuring units (DMU) installed on the secondary side of distribution transformers. It is designed to allow autonomous fault localization while respecting the current configuration and topology of the distribution network. The resulting V-dip feature will be linked to dispatching systems to ensure quick and accurate localization of an earth fault. Distributed measuring units will be additionally equipped with a Class A power quality analyzer module and with optional signal analysis up to 9 kHz to offer additional functions to increase the benefits of the V-dip system. Verification of the system will be carried out on the basis of a pilot project.
