POB6.8 Energy efficiency and energy management
SUT staff has proposed a topic named: Electronic devices supporting the holistic approach of energy efficiency of current technologies. Despite the fact that new technologies can be very effective in many areas, technologies known for many years are still being used. Currently designed devices that use the latest solutions can improve their energy efficiency. This may not only improve the efficiency of power supply and power control systems, but it also supports energy management techniques. In turn, the use of energy-saving technologies may lead to lower energy consumption. In order to optimize power supply and power control systems, dedicated measuring devices with model-based algorithms can be used. Sonochemical techniques are also an important part of the implemented technologies. In the case of energy management systems, machine-learning methods can be used for predicting energy consumption and optimal decision making. SUT participates in the project with one of the largest institutes in Europe - the Institute of Power Engineering (IoPE) in Warsaw. The primary goal of the project realized jointly with IoPE is to design a method for solid fuel combustion intensification. The method must also ensure a flexibility of the power supply system. In this case, the flexibility is understood as a potential reduction in the fossil fuel consumption or combustion of fossil fuels of low quality, while at the same time, keeping sufficiently high efficiency of the power supply system and low emission of gaseous pollutants, even in the presence of varying demand for electricity. The project goals are currently realized in dedicated laboratories in IoPE, in Warsaw. The implemented technologies use the granted European Patent.
