HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD&CEO of Dubai Electrical energy and Water Authority (DEWA), visited DEWA’s Analysis and Improvement (R&D) Centre on the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Photo voltaic Park. He was briefed on the most recent initiatives the Centre is engaged on and the areas of labor of the IoT laboratory, which helps handle vitality and belongings utilizing good sensors, Synthetic Intelligence analytics and cloud storage capabilities.
Al Tayer was welcomed by Waleed Bin Salman, Govt Vice President of Enterprise Improvement and Excellence at DEWA; Dr Ali Rashid Al Alili, Vice President – Analysis and Improvement; Dr Hesham Ismail, Senior Supervisor of Expertise Development and workers members.
Al Tayer counseled the efforts of the R&D Centre, which incorporates gifted Emirati professionals, in growing superior options within the Centre’s areas of labor.
“By the R&D Centre, DEWA goals to develop disruptive applied sciences for the Fourth Industrial Revolution to supply world-class providers that improve the standard of life in Dubai, along with growing the analysis and improvement sector within the UAE and offering it with certified Emiratis, in addition to supporting the scientific group within the UAE and the world. That is achieved by means of disseminating information, growing the capabilities of Emirati researchers, and strengthening DEWA’s distinguished place on the forefront of worldwide utilities. By its pioneering initiatives, high quality partnerships, and the improvements it develops, the R&D Centre helps DEWA’s imaginative and prescient to grow to be a globally main sustainable revolutionary company,” stated Al Tayer.
Al Tayer reviewed a variety of revolutionary analysis initiatives on the R&D Centre. These embody the Carbon Seize Storage and Utilisation (CCSU), Wi-fi Energy Switch (WPT), and the Move Battery, for which DEWA has registered a patent. The 4IR Superior Supplies crew is engaged on a complicated model that includes a no-leak geometry in addition to one other invention that improves the protection of the system.
The 4IR Robotics crew defined the most recent updates on the granted patent of System and Methodology for Measuring Atmospheric Attenuation to find out the most effective areas for Concentrated Photo voltaic Energy (CSP) towers. The crew briefed Al Tayer on a brand new invention, which is a high-precision photo voltaic tracker.
Al Tayer was briefed by the IoT workers on use circumstances on the primary totally automated and energy-optimised constructing monitoring and management IoT set up within the UAE. The platform consists of temperature sensors and folks counting programs, to regulate the temperature and lighting circumstances primarily based on the variety of individuals contained in the constructing in addition to the exterior temperature. He additionally reviewed a data-driven resolution assist system and an underground pipeline inspection (UPI) take a look at rig for the identification of water transmission leakages.
Al Tayer was briefed about LoRA IoT for the 3U nanosatellite (DEWA-SAT 1) launched by DEWA as a part of its House-D programme. The R&D Centre developed the satellite tv for pc IoT terminals to attach DEWA’s belongings to the satellite tv for pc straight and be appropriate for grid functions, the place it hyperlinks IoT sensors to DEWA’s nanosatellites.
Seawater Reverse Osmosis (SWRO)
Al Tayer checked the solar-powered water pumping and desalination station on the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Photo voltaic Park to desalinate water utilizing Reverse Osmosis (RO) expertise, with a manufacturing capability of fifty cubic metres (round 11,000 gallons) a day. This challenge is a part of DEWA’s efforts to supply R&D amenities at Photo voltaic Park with high-quality consuming water.
The Centre’s work areas
The R&D Centre’s analysis areas embody solar energy, good grid integration, vitality effectivity, and water. It additionally focuses on area applied sciences and Fourth Industrial Revolution functions. Its inner labs research and take a look at system reliability, and it carries out exterior subject testing of recent applied sciences and gear, together with the efficiency and reliability of photo voltaic photovoltaic panels and eradicating mud.
