Project Description

The objective of the proposed 36-month effort is to develop CAPE-OPEN compliant virtual sensing capability and multi-objective stochastic programming capability for optimal sensor placement under uncertainty for advanced power systems with various objectives like efficiency, maximum information, and cost.

Project Benefits

This project will focus on large scale sensor deployment and optimization by determining optimal sensor location under uncertainty in advanced power systems. These advancements could lead to an increase in observability, create a cost effective sensor network, and increase efficiency in advanced power systems. Ultimately, these advancements in technology mean better control of gasifier or boiler operation and thus, lowered operating costs and decreased overall environmental impacts.
