Project Description

The proposed research will provide sensor deployment, coordination and networking algorithms for large numbers of sensors to ensure the safe, reliable, and robust operation of advanced energy systems. Specifically, the research will derive sensor performance metrics for heterogeneous sensor networks and will demonstrate effectiveness, scalability and reconfigurability of heterogeneous sensor networks in advanced power systems.

Project Benefits

This project will provide intelligent coordination of heterogeneous sensors in advanced power systems. These advancements will lead to better sensor deployment through coordination and networking algorithms for a large number of sensors. This will ensure the safe, reliable, and robust operation of advanced energy systems deriving sensor performance metrics from heterogeneous sensor networks and demonstrate effectiveness, scalability and reconfigurability of heterogeneous sensor networks in these systems. Improved measurement of conditions inside a gasifier or boiler will allow for better control of their operation. The ultimate impact of this technology is expected to be lower operating costs and increased efficiency, leading to reduced emissions and lessened environmental impact.
