Prosjekter

Et utvalg av IFEs forskningsprosjekter
The Petro-HRA Project
A new method for assessment of human reliability in post-initiating events in the petroleum industry.
THELMA
Thermoelectric materials: Nanostructuring for improving the energy efficiency of thermoelectric generators and heat-pumps (Norwegian Resource Council project no. 228854).
Total scattering techniques for investigations of disorder in the solid state
"Total scattering" techniques , which reveal information about atomic and short-range atomic correlations by considering the diffuse scattering in addition to the Bragg scattering, have proven to be very powerful for investigations of the structur of disordered materials. These techniques are about to reach maturity but are hardly exploited by Norwegian research communities.
TracIntel
TracIntel er en flerklients JIP med formål å utvikle tracerteknologi for å møte utfordringer knyttet til nye produksjonsmetoder og miljøproblematikk. Programmet er delt inn i flere mindre prosjekter.
Tynne, høyeffektive solceller av silisium med nanostrukturer
Nanoteknologi og nanostrukturerte materialer har stort potensiale til å øke kostnadseffektiviteten til silisiumbaserte solceller. Dette prosjektet søker å utnytte dette potensialet gjennom å utvikle nye materialer og ny teknologi for å lage solceller av veldig tynne silisiumsubstrater.
Virtual Flow
The project of “virtual flow sensors” conducts a feasibility study of a computational intelligence approach to the enhancement of the accuracy of feedwater flow measurements in the framework of an ongoing cooperation between Tecnatom s.a. in Madrid (www.tecnatom.es) and the OECD Halden Reactor Project in Halden. The aim of this research project is to contribute to the development and validation of a flow sensor in a nuclear power plant (NPP).
Virtuell virkelighet for vedlikeholdsopplæring
IFE jobber med å bruke virtuell virkelighet for å gi arbeidere på kjernekraftverk bedre forståelse av arbeidsoppgaver, og bli kjent med utstyr og området der de skal jobbe
Vision-Based Diagnostics [2003-2008]
The goal of the Vision-Based Diagnostics project was to develop systems for automated, continuous monitoring of essential process equipment using primarily thermographic, but also ordinary visual light cameras. The activity led to the development of a software-based tool named Vision to perform this task.
VNEM
A Nodal Neutron Transport Method for Calculating In-Core Power Distribution of Light Water Reactors
Work practices
Ytelsen til solceller i tørt klima – effekten av soiling og modulteknologi på årlig produksjon
Prosjektet er et samarbeid mellom IFE, Universitetet i Stellenbosch i Sør-Afrika og Scatec Solar. Målet er å utvikle en metodologi for å forutsi og optimalisere effektiviteten til solcellesystemer i områder med tørt klima.
Zero Emission Gas Power Plant (ZEG) – Verification of process design in laboratory scale (2006-2007)
The main goal of the present project is to build, test and evaluate a 2 kW laboratory scale plant for co-production of electricity and hydrogen from natural gas with integrated CO2-capture. The plant comprises an integrated system with a SOFC-stack and a reactor for hydrogen production by sorption enhanced reforming.
ZeroGen II - Technologies for Large Scale Zero Emission Power Plants (2008-2009)
The main objective of the present project is to identify the optimal integration of the ZEG-technology with respects to high overall efficiency, high CO2 capture rate, low production costs of electricity and hydrogen as well as low CO2 capture costs in large scale zero emission power plants.
ZeroGen – Technologies for Zero Emission Power Plants (2005-2008)
The main objective of the ZeroGen program is to establish competence and knowledge within critical technology areas crucial for the realization of ultra-efficient zero emission power plants that can supply electric power and/or hydrogen to the marketplace at competitive prices.
