Purpose and goal

The purpose of the individual mobility project from Chalmers to ABB Corporate Research Center is to exchange and develop technical knowledge within the area of digital high voltage diagnostics where both academic and industry can benefit from each other. ABB will benefit from research experience developed within Chalmers for imminent power capacitor failure detection and Chalmers will gain knowledge on digital substation for engineer education. Both ABB and Chalmers will gain competences from the joined technique development in pulse electroacoustic measurement.

Expected results and effects

The project is planned to work within the three specific topics: 1) Capacitor end of life investigation, where my research experiences developed during PhD studies can help ABB in detection of imminent power capacitor failure; 2) Digital substations for education: knowledge on digital substation can be obtained from work related to diagnostic of substation components and used for Chalmers education. 3) Charge density measurement development: Both ABB and Chalmers will exchange and gain knowledge in development of pulse electroacoustic measurement technique.

Planned approach and implementation

AP1(May-Aug. 2018) : Preparation phases, personal education in safety, fire protection,test site electrical safety AP2(Sep.-Dec. 2018): Capacitor end of life measurement setup implementation, verification, testing AP3(Jan.-April 2019): Seminar on capacitor end of life results, course development in digital substation diagnostic techniques AP4 (May-Aug. 2019): PEA measurement system development, verification. AP5(Sep.-Dec. 2019): Seminars and lectures on digital substation high voltage diagnostics techniques, further improvement on PEA measurement system
