How can data science techniques like artificial intelligence create value in the power sector? What are the use cases with greatest promise for power sector actors such as TSO's, DSO's, utilities and energy service providers?
The AI4Power project focuses on the identification, development and exploitation of use cases for advanced analytics in electrical utilities business. It includes investigation into asset management, markets, real-time processes and data privacy in AI in power systems.
The project also includes the analysis, development and distribution of open access AI-based tools that allow utilities to increase their knowledge of AI, and where possible will use sample datasets to prove the value of AI methods.
The work supports ongoing HSLU research activities, the development of industrial partnerships, and the strategic development of the Digital Energy and Electric Power research group at HSLU. It also provides direct value to power sector actors in Switzerland by increasing their knowledge of AI use cases and increasing their visibility in relation to the topic in Switzerland and globally.
