Project Name: Integrated monitoring and control system for complete real-time estimation of the functional state of all electrical networks – ACRONYM << SIMCEC>>

Summary of the Project Proposal / Expected Results:

The project “Integrated monitoring and control system for complete real-time estimation of the functional state of all electrical networks” aims to find solutions for online monitoring of the functional state of the entire national energy system.

For this, they benefit from the know-how and experience of NOVA INDUSTRIAL S.A. which designed, built, delivered, installed, put into operation and put into current operation the equipment and software programs related to the SMART GRIDS pilot project, comprising three high voltage substations (400/110 kV and 220/110 kV) belonging to CNTEE Transelectrica, project appreciated as an international premiere.

The IT system will ensure in real time the verification of the completeness and correctness of the operation from a technical point of view, the rapid evaluation of the current technical condition of the equipment and installations, the storage of data (both online and offline on the operation history) in a database. UNICA data (modern, flexible and operational, at national level), will allow the evaluation of the operation risk, the establishment of the urgency, the nature and the hierarchy of the maintenance works.

The volume of information to be conveyed (for the complete real-time estimation of the functional state of the electrical network assembly) is at least an order of magnitude larger than in “classic” SCADA systems..

The originality of the proposed methods consists in mixing two directions of action: integrating several areas of knowledge (including sensor networks) in a single expert system, and creating an integrated expert system (software) for online monitoring of the functional parameters of the whole electrical networks.

The project is based on the creation of a nucleus of high scientific and technological competence, in accordance with European standards, in a Romanian company, being a unique research project in the field of industrial maintenance and reliability, based on risks specific to the energy industry. ) and the concept of SMART GRIDS.

The project is in line with the new directions in the energy policy of the European Union and Romania.
