Enabled Condition Monitoring and Fault Diagnostics for Distributed Energy Systems

Kathryn Colquhoun is a fellow who will mainly Exploring data-driven methods (ANNs, DL, FL etc.) which could be used to conduct performance monitoring and fault diagnostics of micro gas turbines and arranging these in a hybrid structure to optimise the performance of the fault diagnostic model. ​

ENSYSTRA - Energy Systems in Transition

Link to Ensystra page: (www.ensystra.eu )

Researchers: Abhinav Bhaskar, PhD Candidate, Qian Zhang, PhD Candidate

Qian’s project:

The overall aim of this project is to provide a generic approach for optimum management of energy systems using the combination of artificial intelligence techniques and physics-based modeling, in terms of energy, economy, and the environment.

Abhinav’s project:

The project aims to develop a techno-economic analysis of the feasibility of innovative production technologies for decarbonizing the energy intensive industries in the North Sea region. This encompasses conceptual process modeling, economic modeling, uncertainty analysis, optimization (mathematical modeling), and energy system modeling.

BHEsINNO - Innovation in Underground Thermal Energy Storages with Borehole Heat Exchangers

The project involves development of innovative structures of Borehole Heat Exchangers (BHEs). Structures tested as a part of the project will aim to maximize the energy effect (which is defined as a unitary power obtained in BHE, in Watt per meter). Innovative constructions include the pipe system in the borehole. New composite coaxial pipes system will be developed. Coaxial constructions will be analyzed and compared to the traditional, U-tube based ones. The coaxial construction gives possibilities use it in a borehole with greater depth than U-pipe design. Research methodology is based on mathematical modelling of an individual BHEs as well as fields consisting of multiple BHEs, taking into account their interference. Modelling will be verified by in situ tests on created BHEs. It is expected to conduct Thermal Response Tests (TRT) on every borehole. Next innovation is TRT results interpretation. TRT results will be interpreted using three methods. Additionally, thermal conductivity test will be conducted on minimum three Borehole Heat Exchangers.

Agastor - Advanced Gas and Carbon Dioxide Storage in Aquifer

Carbon geological storage (CGS) as an element of the CCUS/CCS process is considered to be the most viable option for the storage of the large CO2 quantities needed to reduce global warming and related climate change effectively. Storage of natural gas and partially decarbonized gas (with addition H2) will play a vital role in the stability of energy supply in the EU. The innovative, guiding concept of the AGaStor project is based on synergy between natural gas storage and CO2 storage process in a location near captured CO2 emission sources (e.g. in NW Poland). The main objective of the project is to facilitate the implementation of advanced Underground Gas Storage (UGS) using dynamic support of Carbon Dioxide Cushion (CDC) in saline aquifers. The project will produce practical guidelines and solutions for characterization of possible storage sites of UNGS with CDC (3D architecture of the storage complex, trapping mechanisms, reactive flow, CO2/NG mixing process, risk assessment and sensitivity analysis) in selected regions of future deployment, improved monitoring and potential mitigation of CO2 leakage. Combining CO2 storage with UGS can bring economic and technological advantages to the industry and allow it to reduce the amount of anthropogenic emissions of CO2. This new CCUS element may be an element of pro-climate action. A key issue of the AGaStor project will be knowledge exchange and enhanced cooperation between the Polish & Norwegian partners to determine the best technologies & application in the energy systems of partner countries.

Smart solutions for energy systems of the future

Fredrik Skaug Fadnes is an industrial PhD whose project is on artificial intelligence based and data driven modelling of a central thermal energy plant’s operational conditions. The plant represents a Multi-Vector Energy System, consisting of several renewable production units with a complex interaction, sewage heat pumps for heating and cooling production and solar collectors, a biogas boiler and heat recovery from shower wastewater for heating and hot domestic water production. The models will be used to investigate if the operation of the plant can be optimized regarding operational cost, GHH emissions and energy or peak load consumption. The project will investigate how to design and specify future thermal energy plants prepared for AI-based control and operation. Other reference projects may include the energy project Elnett21 at Stavanger airport and the new Airport in Bodø, which Norconsult is currently developing for Avinor.
