Partnering opportunity

Slovak university is offering a new water power plant: a portable physical model of a pumped storage hydro-plant

Summary

An established Slovak university has developed a new water power plant. It is a portable physical model of a pumped storage hydro-plant. It can be applied in the research and testing of advanced control algorithms before their implementation on real industrial processes. The system is also suitable for supporting practical education in courses on automatic control systems analysis and design. They are looking for partners for license agreement or commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Partner sought

- Type of partner sought: Industrial partners - companies - Specific area of activity of the partner: Energy producers - Task to be performed: Implementation of technology via license agreement or via commercial agreement with technical assistance.

Description

Above mentioned Slovak university offers for decades education in technical, technological, technical-economical, technical-information and technical-artistic fields of study. The university has developed a portable physical model of a pumped storage hydro-plant, which can be easily applied in the research and testing of advanced control algorithms before their implementation on real industrial processes. Other practical use of this technology is in education process - e.g. in courses on automatic control systems analysis and design. The priority of the system is its ability to simulate single-input, single-output (SISO) and multi-input, multi-output (MIMO) processes with a variable time delay. There are a number of steps that must be undertaken before a control algorithm can be successfully applied to a real environment. The main benefit of the laboratory system can be expected in obtaining a first practical experience with the created control algorithms, and in shortening a test phase before their implementation in an industrial process. The main market for the result are universities and research laboratories. The technology could be also applicable in water power plants. The university is looking for partners to cooperate with via license agreement or via commercial agreement with technical assistance. Their aim is the implementation of this technology. These types of cooperation were selected because they fit to actual need of the university regarding to this technology in a very best way. Specific area of the partner sought should be in energy sector.

Advantages and innovations

- It enables first experiences to be obtained with tuning of the algorithms’ parameters. - It helps to overcome the drawbacks of the non-sensitivity of mathematical theories to many control problems, and supports their solutions. - The system reduces the costs planned for experiments with real industrial plants, and permits testing of the algorithms in various marginal situations.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
