Current projects

Quantum traceability for AC power standards


The power industry is transitioning to renewable sources of energy, which tend to be locally distributed. To avoid instability, poor power quality and...

Measurement methods and test procedures for assessing accuracy of instrument transformers for power quality measurements


Renewable electricity can cause grid-injected disturbances, damaging power quality (PQ). PQ represents the grids ability to supply constant, stable po...

Metrology for future energy transmission


Electricity travels over transmission networks as alternating current (AC) at high voltages to help minimise energy losses, currently equivalent to 15...

Completed projects

Non-conventional voltage and current sensors for future power grids


Integrating power from renewable energy sources into existing distribution grids will become an essential requirement for reducing CO2 emissions. Howe...

Metrology for efficient and safe innovative lighting


The electricity generation sector is the largest contributor to global CO2 emissions, and lighting consumes one fifth of produced electricity. Househo...

Sensor network metrology for the determination of electrical grid characteristics


Smart Grids could unlock further expansion of renewable generation capacity, enabling the control of what will be more distributed and complex network...

Next generation of power and energy measuring techniques

Power & Energy

The project aimed at developing a metrology infrastructure consisting of equipment designs, algorithms, procedures and techniques that will enable the...
