By investigating, developing and demonstrating within six application areas, the European Pattern Recognition project (EPR project) explores the vast potential of pattern recognition technology combined with power quality measurement in electrical grids.
What is Pattern Recognition?
Pattern Recognition is a branch of machine learning that focuses on the recognition of patterns and regularities in data. Algorithms such as support vector machines, often trained by labeled training data, form its core. Today, the technology is used in many applications such as finger print recognition and in online search engines.
The EPR project will apply pattern recognition technology to power quality and other related electrical grid data such as smart energy meter readings to develop tools for grid operators and energy companies to optimise the power system and enable a higher share of renewable energy generation.
