Loughborough University has announced a new competition to develop new approaches to substation monitoring. Entries may be entirely new methods of measuring and recording substation condition or use existing devices in new ways, but must show novelty beyond what is currently available.
The competition is open to all taught students studying at UK universities. The closing date for shortlisting of concepts is 16th February 2018 and for the final award is 29th June 2018
Prizes of £5000, £1000 and £500 are available.
