The Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev congratulated the laureates of the Prize. The Minister of the Education and Science of the Russian Federation Olga Vasilieva and Deputy Minister Grigory Trubnikov held the ceremony. Totally, in 2017 over a hundred of scientific works were submitted to the competition. 28 projects were honored with the Prize, including seven projects presented by young scientists.
Tomsk Polytechnic University was presented by young scientists Mikhail Andreev, Nikolai Ruban, Alexei Suvorov, and Ruslan Ufa. The project was led by former TPU Vice-Rector for Academic Affairs Yuri Borovikov (now – Acting Rector of Novgorod State University).
The developed simulation complex allows reducing the number of large accidents by 35-40%, decreasing the energy losses by at least 4-5% due to the optimization of operation modes for EPG with AAG.
It simulates any process in power grids: it may be the grid of one enterprise or the grid of the whole region, which forecasts real consequences caused by a malfunction in the operation of power equipment.
The Tomsk simulation complex has been successfully tested on power grids of individual enterprises, as well as cities and regions. Recently, using the development, the scientists assessed the reliability and sustainability of the power supply system of Sakhalin Oblast, identified bottlenecks of the grid and its potential backup capacity.
