Student of Budapest University of Technology and Economics (BME), 2nd year MSc degree, Electrical Engineer
1. Why did you join the project?
In my dorm room I usually watched jealously my roommate, who is obsessively dealt with the electrical engineering developments of the BME Formula Racing Team?s race car, so when I got the opportunity to take part in an innovative project, where those kinds of tasks are waiting for me that are related to my specialization I didn?t hesitate.
On the other hand, the next few decades will set up huge challenges towards the high-voltage electrical engineering profession (smart grid, energy storage, integration of renewable energy resources with large production capacity into power systems) and in this project casino online I can deal with these current problems.
2. What are you doing in the project right now?
My main task is the leading of the electrical engineer team. My responsibility was the invention of the concept of the solar system and the design of the power plans so far. Together with the team we designed an algorithm, which gives a stochastic estimate based on variable input parameters about the yearly energy balance of our house (currently in hourly resolution) while the system monitors the most important power (and many other physical) parameters. The simulation results provide us an opportunity to prepare ourselves to those system statuses as well that can be a risk for us during the competition (e.g. overload or overproduction due to overheating problems, unwanted release of protections) and helpful in the solution of scaling and controlling problems. With good scaling we can reduce the costs (and we still get maximum score on the competition) and less solar panels are easier to integrate aesthetically into the casing of the house. I?m convinced that the planning of a family house?s solar system is a trivial task; however, to design a more efficient and more secure operating system with the world?s greatest 19 university is a great challenge! Besides the power planning and the clarification of the energy balance model I?m looking for the opportunities of the physical implementation of energy management and I also take part in the development of the house?s control concept (especially in energy management and lighting techniques).
3. What do you expect from the future? What are you doing besides the project?
Despite the fact that the European Union?s crisis situation hiding numerous risks ? and these might strongly affect the market of renewable energy and the innovation activities ? I look confidently into the future. Currently, besides my Master studies, I?m working as an innovation engineer (trainee) at General Electric Lighting & Appliances for more than a year. In addition, occasionally I prepare solar system licensing plans for Manitu Solar Ltd. and on weekends I like working with my father ? from whom I have learnt the most about the profession ? on lighting and power design tasks. I can be thankful for all of my jobs, because in recent years I have improved a lot both in approaches and knowledge.
4. In your opinion, how will we participate in the competition? What do you think, what is the most difficult part of the project?
Probably we will win:)
