Project Description:

The project's "Intelligent light sensing for next generation smart grids" (LightSense) primary objective is to respond in a holistic way to the energy efficiency, continuity and security needs of power distribution networks within Cyprus, regarding timely fault prevention and intrusion detection.
The extensive goals are to:
(1) Exploit the optical sensing capabilities of the existing optical fibre, on-grid network, to enable the remote and automated, continuous, and timely monitoring of the grid infrastructure integrity of the principal energy supplier within Cyprus;
(2) Extract critical information, such as the locations of transmission inefficiencies, such as hot-spots, and provide predictive information regarding the emergence and location of possible faults, in order to ensure reliability and continuity of supply;
(3) Address the lack of informed policy with regard to issues of security and reliability in the context of actively monitoring future smart grids at the operations level, in real time;
(4) Monitor unmanned or unsupervised critical infrastructure to prevent unauthorised interference and access.
