LightSense Project
On December 2, 2021, members of the LightSense Project visited the offices of the Transmission System Operator – Cyprus (TSOC). During the visit, TSOC engineers presented to our members the SCADA system; a powerful control system that is designed to collect, analyze, and visualize data from the power equipment of the transmission network. In case of a failure, the TSOC coordinates the processes for the restoration of the generation and transmission system, making it an efficient, secure and reliable system. All the above are performed to ensure an uninterrupted supply of electricity to the consumers.Learn more on: www.light-sense.org ConsortiumCoordinator: Cyprus University of Technology / Τεχνολογικό Πανεπιστήμιο ΚύπρουProject PartnersBar-Ilan University, IsraelFrederick University Cyprus Research Centre, CyprusCyprus Energy Regulatory Authority, CyprusCyprus Computer Society, CyprusΑρχή Ηλεκτρισμού Κύπρου, CyprusAlgolysis LTD, CyprusLumoscribe LTD, CyprusResoloupe LTD, CyprusThe Project LightSense (INTEGRATED/0918/0031) is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Cyprus through the Research and Innovation Foundation.Ίδρυμα Έρευνας και Καινοτομίας/ Research and Innovation Foundation See MoreSee Less

LightSense Project
Pilot deployment of the sensor systems at EAC Head officesOn October 2021, LightSense project members had successfully installed the sensor systems at EAC Head offices in Nicosia.LightSense project utilizes the EAC’s existing single-mode optical fibers installed in parallel with the underground power cables as the distributed sensor. The starting point of the optical path is the EAC Head Office in Nicosia (Dhasoupolis transmission substation 11 kV) and the end point is the “Langadas” distribution substation (11 kV). The underground cables have a total distance of about 1.6 km, with multiple power cable joints. The increased number of joints leads to an increased possibility of failure in the power network.The sensor systems (from FEBUS Optics and Silixa Ltd) monitor the temperature and strain of the optical cables for providing useful information and also for identifying abnormal behaviours on the cables and thus in general possible network failures in the power network.Learn more on: www.light-sense.org ConsortiumCoordinator: Cyprus University of Technology / Τεχνολογικό Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου, Social Computing Research Center – SCRCProject PartnersBar-Ilan University, IsraelFrederick University Cyprus Research Centre, CyprusCyprus Energy Regulatory Authority, CyprusCyprus Computer Society, CyprusΑρχή Ηλεκτρισμού Κύπρου, CyprusAlgolysis LTD, CyprusLumoscribe LTD, CyprusResoloupe LTD, CyprusThe Project LightSense (INTEGRATED/0918/0031) is co-funded by the European Regional Development Fund and the Republic of Cyprus through the Research and Innovation Foundation.Ίδρυμα Έρευνας και Καινοτομίας/ Research and Innovation Foundation See MoreSee Less

LightSense Project
A new journal paper has just been published in OSA Photonics ResearchThe journal review paper entitled “Distributed polymer optical fiber sensors: a review and outlook” has just been published in OSA Photonics Research. The Photonics Research is a highly impact factor journal (2020 Impact Factor: 7.080) with high-quality, peer-reviewed articles in its portfolio of journals, publishing fundamental and applied research progress in optics and photonics.This review paper focuses on recently developed distributed and quasi-distributed POF-based sensing techniques based on Rayleigh scattering, Brillouin scattering, and fiber Bragg gratings.Read and download this Open Access review paper: doi.org/10.1364/PRJ.435143Cyprus University of Technology / Τεχνολογικό Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου 横浜国立大学 / Yokohama National University(YNU) DiGOS Potsdam GmbH Shibaura Institute of Technology(芝浦工業大学) Tokyo Institute of Technology Antreas Theodosiou See MoreSee Less

LightSense Project
Silixa provided to the project two ULTIMA DTS (Distributed Temperature Sensor) systems (Multi-mode and Single-mode) and an iDAS (intelligent Distributed Acoustic Sensor) system. A two-day training was conducted by the company to the Cyprus University of Technology / Τεχνολογικό Πανεπιστήμιο Κύπρου research staff.Read our latest project news on: www.light-sense.org/silixa-dts-and-idas-systems/ See MoreSee Less
