Energy Wall - Steam Distribution and Energy Delivery Optimization Wireless Sensors
June 12, 2013 — The objective of the project is to design, develop and deploy robust methods to efficiently deliver steam on ORNL campus. Wireless sensors are used for demonstrating ease of deployment, low-cost, and rapid fault identification. Steam losses amount to $540/trap/year, typical facility like ORNL has 1-2K traps on steam distribution.
Fully-virtualized Computational Energy Infrastructure Model for Improving Cyber Resilience
June 12, 2013 — Multiple interdependent energy foundations, comprising energy generation, transmission, and end-use, serve as critical infrastructure facility for ORNL. These energy infrastructures are driven by multi-level control systems that observe the state of the system and respond to attain a local stable operating point. The goal is to develop a simulation framework to comprehensively analyze the resiliency of the ORNL campus that can be scaled to include regional and national level infrastructure modeling.
