Short Name: Power & Energy, Project Number: T4.J01

Next generation of power and energy measuring techniques

Society demands electricity supplies that are secure, sustainable and of high quality. In the next decade, Europe is facing potential energy shortages as oil and gas supplies run down and nuclear power facilities age. Pressure to reduce the green house gas emissions will lead to a requirement for more renewable energy generation, efficient appliances, energy management and improved electricity distribution efficiencies. Commerce will demand an electricity supply of the highest quality, free from momentary voltage interruptions or interference sources.

The project aimed at developing a metrology infrastructure consisting of equipment designs, algorithms, procedures and techniques that will enable the measurement of Power Quality parameters under realistic conditions and develop on-site capabilities that provide traceable measurements on fixed power grid installations. This metrology infrastructure will enable technologists, energy suppliers and regulators to work towards an energy secure future.
