Purpose and goal

The overall objective of the project has been to contribute to the long-term strengthening of Metrum´s competitiveness nationally and internationally. The aim of the project has been to strengthen competitiveness by providing Metrum with new important knowledge within the field of artificial intelligence where these skills are used in the development of new applications that increase the customer benefit of Metrum´s products

Expected results and effects

Through this project, Metrum gained increased knowledge in AI, mainly in the field of prediction of electrical- and non-electrical quantities. These new skills will provide Metrum in terms of increased sales by launching a new generation of products based on the results of this project and increasing customer benefit.

Planned approach and implementation

Implementation of the project can be divided into three parts. The first part is gathering of information and choice of development environment for the software to be developed. The second part is the development of the AI algorithms as well as tests of reliability and accuracy of the algorithms in laboratory. In parallel with this, a datalogger for predictive maintenance of tap changers was developed. The final part of the project involves pilot installations during 2018 in two different power grids in order to investigate the accuracy of the algorithms when used in real environments.
