No Load Diesel Application in Remote Power Systems (2016 - 2019)$451,000
Description
The project aims to investigate and optimise no load diesel application within remote area renewable hybrid powersystems. While hundreds of remote Australian communities rely on expensive and polluting diesel for powergeneration, this project will increase penetration of alternative renewable sources into remote and isolated powersystems. Using dual thermodynamic and electrical modeling, this project will specifically investigate low to no loaddiesel threshold capability, reducing diesel consumption at minimal costs. The project will return immediatebenefits to remote mining, defence and tourism based communities, providing a pathway to reduce diesel usageand increased renewable penetration.

AUSTRALIA JAPAN EMERGING RESEARCH LEADERS travel to Japan (2016)$11,213
Description
The Australia Japan Emerging Research Leaders Exchange Program (ERLEP) is an importantinternational collaborative linkages program which aims to establish individual and institutional S&Tresearch linkages between Australia and Japan. The scheme is targeted at mid-career researchers ofboth countries who are emerging leaders in the Science and Technology community.The program began in 2010 with funding from the former Department of Innovation, Industry, Scienceand Research (DIISR) and the Japanese Society for the Promotion for Science (JSPS).The Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE) and the Engineering Academy ofJapan (EAJ) administer the exchange program.To date, 33 Japanese researchers have travelled to Australia to undertake two weeks of individualinstitutional visits, and 23 Australian researchers have travelled to Japan to undertake the same modelof exchange. With these visits, the 56 researchers have collectively engaged with over 1,500researchers in their respective fields of expertise.ERLEPs success is reflected in key outcomes such as collaborative projects, joint publications,international conferences, and staff and student exchanges.

Low Load Diesel Technology Demonstration (2015 - 2017)$686,599
Description
The proposal will investigate and optimise low load operating thresholds in modern multi-cylinder diesel generators. Operating thresholds will be established via controlled operation of a remote power system integrated diesel generator. Optimisation of the units low load capabilities will subsequently be explored via modification to the engine, possibly including cooling, injector, cylinder, exhaust and/or charge air cooling sub-system refinement. This work is motivated by a need to explore low load capabilities of modern diesel engines, primarily concerned with integrating maximum renewable penetration into any remote power system. Diesels accounts for the vast majority of new and existing generation into off-grid and remote power systems, yet renewables offer cost competitive supply alternatives (Frischknecht, 2014). A key roadblock to greater renewable penetration remains the performance of the diesel engines and their inability to run at low loads. The lower you can run your diesel, the more renewable penetration can be achieved. Just how to achieve sustained low load operation, while maintaining power quality is the problem addressed within this proposal.

Increasing renewable energy penetration through embedded renewable micro-grids (2014)$8,000
Description
This project will explore the role of primary producers within the Tasmanian network, leveraging both existing and future energy demand associated with a major Tasmanian primary producer. Using this existing facility to investigate how multiple embedded renewable energy technologies can contribute to reduced operational and environmental costs, this project aims to oversee the design implementation and operation of an embedded renewable micro-grid. Research will determine renewable technologies currently financially viable for integration within a private HV grid context.
