Purpose and goal
The goal of Darwin + project has been to establish an open environment that promotes collaboration between electricity grid companies, academics, innovators, entrepreneurs, suppliers, customers and users. Through a good collaboration between these agencies, interruption statistics can be easily collected in a common database and used to develop and renew the power grids in a future-proof and cost-effective manner. The main purpose of the project, to make available historical and future information collected and stored in Darwin via an open interface is estimated to be achieved.
Expected results and effects
The expected impact of the project was to create an open database storage to enable access to historical and future collected interruptions statistics from the Swedish electrical grids. The project has created Darwin +, which is an open interface with anonymous information retrieved from the Darwin database. The Darwin database is a interruptions statistics database, a joint venture consisting of Swedish electrical grid operators. The main purpose of the project, to make available historical and future information collected and stored in Darwin, is deemed to be achieved.
Planned approach and implementation
Project manager for the project has been carried out by Sweco in Stockholm. Technical implementation (programming) has been carried out by Elpool in Umeå. To the project there has been a working group and a reference group consisting of individuals representing different companies and parts of the industry. System development has been done based on these discussions and software testing has been done both internally and by allowing any selected network operator to test updates. To the project has a swell reported to a steering group within Energiforsk
