Digital data and analytics can help to reduce operations and maintenance costs, improve power plant and network efficiency, reduce unplanned outages and downtime, and extend assets’ lifetime. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the overall savings from these digitally-enabled measures would be around USD 80 billion per year over 2016-40. To realize these and enjoy the benefits of digitalization, it is important to develop and deploy new methods for digital asset maintenance and management for the electricity grids. Research Goal The goals of this postdoctoral research are to:Improve the current “wait until it breaks” approach to maintenance to a more proactive, predictive, and prescriptive maintenanceLeverage available digital data e. g. operation data, working environment data, etc to better prioritize asset replacement and plan renovation Background and/or Theories Today’s common practice in maintenance in electricity distribution grids is a reactive approach which is accompanied by expensive frequent preventive maintenance on some assets such as transformers and cable boxes. Therefore, the current maintenance practice relies heavily on manual inspection and does not use digital data. Many efforts have been dedicated to improving the current practice, e.g. through fault prediction and location [1]. These methods, although effective, they either not reliable or require data with a very high resolution. To the best of our knowledge, methods that can use the currently available low-resolution data for proactive, predictive, and prescriptive maintenance do not exist. Asset management is more advanced compared to maintenance still heavily relies on expensive manual inspections and assumptions and does not use operational conditions or environmental working conditions such as soil type, proximity to roads with damaging vibrations, etc.  These parameters are important to be considered in asset management as they affect the actual lifetime of the assets.  Methodology In this project, a digital twin will be developed for simulation-based prediction and analysis of faults and critical events in smart grids and the evaluation of possible solutions. This is expected to be carried out in MATLAB or PowerFactory environments. In addition, Machine Learning is expected to be used on the available time series to identify pre-failure symptoms and behavior, allowing us to predict faults at the early stages. Machine Learning will also be used for asset management to combine different available data on environmental working conditions and operation with grid information and to better plan asset replacement.

MoU between PGU and North East Petroleum University (China)

Persian Gulf University and Northeast Petroleum University (China) signed a Memorandum of Understanding at the level of the presidents of the two universities on July 16, 2022 in order to develop joint scientific collaborations. Dr. Arash Khosravi said the the goals of the aforementioned memorandum, which has been signed by the presidents of the two universities, Dr. Mohammad Modarresi and Prof. Mingo Jiang, and is valid for 5 years, are as follows: To Establish a joint research lab named “unconventional energy resources. Engage in scientific research and academic exchanges between the two parties, share new research ideas and create new opportunities for cooperation. Exchange of information and bibliographic materials, sharing of know-how about high complex technical-scientific sets, higher education extension activities, included the mobility of technical, administrative and librarian staff connected to these goals; Facilitate smooth progress of joint projects and promote bilateral cooperation and international exchanges between the participating institutions. Conducting of educational activities in subjects of common interest including joint co-supervisions of master and PhD thesis Conducting joint organization of scientific events The Director of International Affairs at Persian Gulf University added that the capacity of joint research grants between Iran and China is a priority for bilateral cooperation. According to the MoU, Prof. Reza Azin and Prof. Bo Liu have been appointed as contact persons in the collaboration capacity building. Northeast Petroleum University has 27,000 students and 1,400 full-time faculty members who work in 21 faculties in the fields of engineering, humanities, foreign languages, sports, arts, politics and economics.
