A societal index model for the assessment of the safety, operability and resilience level of regional mini energy grid


Supervisors: Professor M Pourkashanian, Professor K Hughes

The project is aimed at developing an open expert system for the end user and also for the developer to carry out the risk analysis involved in systems utilising upcoming new energy technologies. This will also aid in the implementation of strategies to manage and minimise the risks involved.

The system will incorporate the expert suites for risk assessment techniques and frameworks, as well as the codes/standards and numerical models to predict the consequences of fires, explosions and other accidents at data banks through the form of case studies. The expert system will produce a societal index to aid the decision-making process on the energy systems' safety, security level, operability and resilience.
