Nominated as finalist in engineering excellence awards

- Advertisment -

Switchgear engineering firm Noja Power has been nominated as a finalist in the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards for their ARENA supported Synchrophasor project executed in partnership with Australian utilities Energy Queensland and AusNet Services, AEMO and the University of Queensland and Deakin University.

The nominated project is among the largest ever scale deployments of synchrophasor technology on the distribution grid. This technology provides a data driven method to improve grid reliability and control under high renewable energy penetration.

The big data acquired in this project is being used for research projects with the University of Queensland and Deakin University. The primary goals of this research are to develop new protection and control techniques for the future distribution grid. Preliminary outcomes from this research include high-precision distribution network parameter modelling, distributed load/generation distinction and network asset condition monitoring.

A multiyear project, Noja Power’s initial development of the synchrophasor phasor measurement unit (PMU) was included in their new recloser control device, the RC20. This new product required multidisciplinary engineering expertise, which is now being used in the field with industry and research partners to improve global application knowledge of synchrophasors in the distribution grid.

The AEEA awards will be announced on 15 September 2020.
