About the Challenge
With the growing use of Distributed Renewable Resources Generators (DRRG) such as solar photovoltaic (PV) systems worldwide there is increased need for interface protection units utilising robust methods to ensure accurate islanding detection with no nuisance tripping for systems connected to the distribution network. Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA), is looking for innovative solutions for Loss of Mains (LoM) detection that overcome the known limitations of current technologies in order to provide increased protection for personnel and equipment.
This is a Reduction-to-Practice Challenge that requires written documentation, experimental proof-of-concept data, and delivery of a prototype upon request of DEWA.
Submissions deadline: 26 Feb 2022 before 11:59 PM (US Eastern Time)
To receive an award, the solvers will have to transfer to the DEWA their exclusive Intellectual Property (IP) rights to the solution.
