Part 1: Sustainability: Use Cases of AI in Energy, Water & Resources
10:45 - 12:15
Michael Klingel: Network state estimation for the renewable energy transition
The energy transition is taking place - through the expansion of renewable energies and the market ramp-up of electromobility - in the distribution grid. As a result, power generation is increasingly migrating to medium and low voltage. This dynamic is accompanied by new challenges for distribution network operators: they have to deal with bidirectional power flows and enormous peak loads - and all this with huge network areas. This is only possible with innovative approaches and the inclusion of artificial intelligence!
Dr. Cyrille Waguet: AI for resilient infrastructures
Timely maintenance of railway tracks is crucial for resilience, comfort and safety in rail traffic. It increases the acceptance of rail transport and its sustainability.
incontext.technology developed a smart monitor for rails which identifies and categorises anomalies on railway tracks by analysing sensor data based on daily train operations. Connected to the operator’s business processes, the resulting digital twin of the tracks keeps the maintenance teams up to date about the rail conditions and their expected evolution.
