Innovation and Technology Fund Internship Programme
The purpose of this project is to: 1) develop an innovative new technology for monitoring the operating state and identifying the energization status of a power cable, 2) construct a sensing system incorporated with magnetoresistive sensors and the inverse calculation algorithm to demonstrate its applications, and 3) promote this new technology to power industry and other possible industrial users for technology transfer. In summary, a new technology and a new sensing system will be developed to meet the need of the power industry which cannot be coped with by existing technologies. Technology transfer through effective information dissemination, patent application, and commercialization will benefit both the local and global energy industries, and commercial sectors.
