grid and Energy Demand Management University Projects Group project to design Biomass plant for heating at Heriot-watts halls of residence estimated to save up to 1800 tonnes of CO2 emissions per academic year. Business plan proposal and design of a 46MW wind farm at Kirkcudbright with 1MW 6MWh storage capacity Sodium Sulphur NAS battery. Design of Photovoltaic module for residential lighting system with storage facilities. Design of Pumped Hydro system. Modelling, simulation and load profiling for active demand management and scheduling of a residential unit. 2014(June-August) Masters Placement with Siemens Transmission and Distribution Plc Smart asset management: Wireless Sensor Networks(control and instrumentation). This research was focused on providing an improvement to the current GIS monitoring system by investigating the inter-operability and efficacy of a wireless sensor network solution. The aim was to achieve inter-operability with existing monitoring system and reduce costs in expensive wiring, costs in installation and deployment, as well as improving the flexibility the monitoring system as opposed to SCADA. Produced and prepared a test plan for the research Designed 10 year battery life for a wireless sensor network solution and recommended a solution for the inter-operability with the current monitoring system. Calculations produced using MathCad Organised the purchase, design and construction of test bed elements. Performed simulation of proposed WSN to investigate the energy consumption and performance. Investigation confirmed energy reduction of around 99.8% on transducer side and overall 80% reduction by duty cycling of radio. Design and construction/Machining of a 200bar pressure Vessel. Calculations produced using MathCad and drafting with PTC Creo parametric Produced a final report on the efficacy of the wireless sensor network towards monitoring of grid connected assets in a substation environment.
