MHI, Khalifa University, & TRANSCO Develop SAVE Software

We are proud to announce our research collaboration project with Khalifa University of Science and Technology and the Abu Dhabi Transmission and Dispatch Company (TRANSCO) to build software to monitor, predict, and interact with network operators in real-time. The industrial level software – ‘Stability Assessment, Visualization, and Enhancement’ (SAVE) tool — will enable renewable energy integration with the UAE power system.

This new software will utilize real-time measurements to evaluate the transmission network stability through the development of state-of-the-art mathematical methods combined with a data analytics-based classification engine. The tool will be used to estimate the domain of stability precisely and to predict the transient stability margins.

“MHI is proud to partner with Khalifa University and TRANSCO on this significant initiative that will undoubtedly help the integration and reliable operation of power systems with large scale renewable energy sources,” says Dr. Dharshana Muthumuni (Managing Director, Power Systems Technology Centre at MHI). “We are particularly pleased to collaborate with Khalifa University’s highly-skilled team, with whom we have had a long and thriving association.”

The collaboration was announced at the 2019 World Future Energy Summit (WFES) that was held as part of the Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week (ADSW) at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Center (ADNEC). Leo St. Hilaire and Jamal Al Dharif (Senior Managers from MHI’s UAE Office) represented MHI at the event on January 15, 2019.
