EMPIR: 24 September, IEEE AMPS 25-27 September 2019
Venue for both: E.ON Energy Research Centre, Aachen University
Loss measurements on power transformers and reactors (17NRM01, TrafoLoss) is working to establish highly accurate loss measurement systems for transformers and reactors and develop prototype devices that significantly reduce measurement uncertainty. By enabling European manufacturers to produce high quality grid components and demonstrate compliance with Eco-design regulations, manufacturers will be able begin making steps toward meeting the EU’s 2020 energy objectives.
Metrology for the next generation digital substation instrumentation (17IND06, FutureGrid II) is working to develop the calibration methods needed for the new digital hardware used in networks for power transmission and distribution. Greater accuracy will be achieved, with measurements traceable to primary standards held by National Measurement Institutes. By monitoring the modern power grid with greater accuracy, a better managed and more reliable electricity supply will be delivered to the consumer.
Workshop: Metrology for digital and efficient electricity grids
This workshop is a chance for stakeholders to hear about and discuss progress with the two EMPIR projects as well as representatives from the European Metrology Network in Smart Electrical Grids. This will be held the day before the IEEE AMPS conference.
14:00 – 14:40 Overview and Progress of TrafoLoss: “Loss Measurements on Power Transformers and Reactors”
Gert Rietveld, project coordinator & Chair of EMN for Smart Electricity Grids
Overview and Progress of FutureGrid II: “Metrology for the next generation digital substation instrumentation”
Enrico Mohns, project coordinator & Vice-Chair of EMN for Smart Electricity Grids
14:40 – 17:00 Poster session & discussion:
- New voltage channels for industrial Loss Measurement Systems (LMS)
- Reference setups for system calibration of industrial LMS
- Uncertainty analysis of loss testing
- Calibration guidance for power transformer and reactor LMS
- Traceable test systems for digital instrument transformers
- Technology for substations
- Digital metering, PMU applications and SV protocol enhancements
The posters will also be shown during the first day of the AMPS workshop.
IEEE AMPS workshop
This IEEE workshop on Applied Measurements for Power Systems deals with all the aspects related to measurement applications in new power systems and networks (Smart Grids) and has the main goal of encouraging discussion on these topics among experts coming from academia, industry and utilities. Topics include, but are not limited to:
- Conventional and non-conventional current and voltage sensors
- Phasor Measurement Units
- Measurements systems and devices in Smart Grids
- Distributed measurement systems
- Measurements on electric power plants and machines
EMPIR projects are co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme and the EMPIR Participating States.
