Dimensioning, Placement and Optimal Management of Electrical Storage Systems for Electricity Grids

IKERLAN

START: 10/2016

COVERED
During the last few years, the rate of renewable power generation (mostly wind and solar power generation) has experienced significant growth. Although it is clean energy, with a low risk of contamination, being safe and inexhaustible, renewable sources have a significant drawback, which must be taken into consideration from the point of view of stability and reliability of the electricity grid: their great variability in production. The stochastic nature of the wind and cloud cover...

Cybersecure Cooperative IoT Schemes to Provide Reliable Communications and Interaction Among Distributed Intelligent Nodes

IKERLAN

START: 10/2016

COVERED
After a first wave of technology based on IoT (Internet of Things), the development of the concept called IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) had commenced. New generation IIoT scenarios will require the development of new techniques and communication schemes among various objects and machinery to provide interconnected modular systems that are capable of handling complex functions with a high degree of reliability. Delegating tasks, with a higher criticality in integrated nodes,...

Development of Monitoring Systems and Prognosis of Production Means for their Application in Industry 4.0 Environments

IKERLAN

START: 10/2016

OPEN
The term Industry 4.0 is associated with the so-called fourth industrial revolution. This revolution poses the definition of a virtual world, one in which information and communications technology and the physical world of machines have become the same. The perfect synchronisation of the real and the virtual world will open up new possibilities for industry. The continuous exchange of real-time data allows for a much higher level of intelligence and greater individualised automation. In...

Structural Reliability: Fatigue Reducing Joint Design

IKERLAN

START: 10/2016

OPEN
New demands for lightweight components requires the use of new materials and joining techniques for these materials. The most recent outlooks for the automotive industry indicate that the issue of joints is the biggest challenge in achieving additional reductions in vehicle weight, with a much greater potential than other trends associated with improved materials. This trend is also aligned with newer models of cars developed using carbon fibre, whose only alternative for assembly is through...

Multidisciplinary Integration of Ultra Low Power Consumption Microsystems for Industry 4.0 environments.

IKERLAN

START: 10/2016

OPEN
Within the current technological context, the creation of autonomous microsystems for industrial environments is essential for positioning the industry within the new strategy of Industry 4.0 and the Internet of Things. Their integration will have a broad impact on the creation of new products (smart objects), business models and cloud services. These new elements require increasingly smaller systems (miniaturisation), along with more features (intelligence) and lower power consumption...
