World : Khalifa University Joins Hands with Abu Dhabi's Transco and Canada's Manitoba Hydro International to Develop Software to Monitor Clean Energy Integration

Research Collaboration Project to Work on Developing Industrial-Level 'Stability Assessment, Visualization and Enhancement' Software Tool

Abu Dhabi: Khalifa University of Science and Technology, the Abu Dhabi Transmission and Dispatch company (TRANSCO) and the Manitoba Hydro International Ltd (MHI) of Canada, have signed a collaboration agreement today for building an industrial-level software to monitor, predict, and interact with network operators in real time and enable renewable energy integration with the UAE power system.

The collaboration was announced during the World Future Energy Summit (WFES) 2019 that is being held as part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) 2019 at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC) from 12-19 January. The agreement signing ceremony was attended by Dr Arif Sultan Al Hammadi, Executive Vice-President, Khalifa University of Science and Technology, Dr Bruce Stedall, Acting Managing Director, TRANSCO, Leo St. Hilaire, Senior Manager, and Jamal Al Dharif, Senior Executive from MHI’s UAE Office, officials, faculty members and students.

The industrial level software – ‘Stability Assessment, Visualization and Enhancement’ (SAVE) tool – will utilize real-time measurements to evaluate the transmission network stability through the development of state-of-the-art mathematical methods combined with a data analytics based classification engine to precisely estimate the domain of stability and to predict the transient margins.
