Status Completed
Venture Challenge-Driven Innovation – Stage 1 initiation
Call Challenge-Driven Innovation - Stage 1 Initiation 2018 (spring)

Purpose and goal

The purpose of the project has been to investigate the feasibility of a solution targeting the electric power load on construction sites through power monitoring and power balancing. The container solution will, among other things, use automatic phase balancing, battery storage and visualization. At the end of the project, we can see that a power solution for controlling and surveillance appears to be a satisfactory solution to the power demand problem at construction sites.

Expected results and effects

The project has generated extended and more detailed understanding for the power demand at construction sites today. Estimation have been made to forecast how this demand will change in the future with the phase-out of fossile fuels. A web page for the project will be launched during step 2. We have also come up with a proposal for a power hub with preliminary specifics on battery dimensioning, inverters and equipment, connections and cost calculations.

Planned approach and implementation

Data has been collected through high-resolution meters. Although no video was recorded from the activities at the site, the electricity data together with general information about construction activities was deemed sufficient as foundation. The container solution concept has been defined with aspects such as battery dimensioning, cost estimations and automatic load balancing.
