Projects in the PSMIX group includes most aspects of ICT systems for power system management, including distributed system using multi-agnet platforms, cybersecurity, interoperability, reliability and communication system performance.
Welcome to the virtual home of the PSMIX - Power System Management with related Information Exchange - group at KTH.
The emerging field of wireless sensor networks is a major focus of research at KTH’s ACCESS Linnaeus Centre. Professors Karl Henrik Johansson and Mikael Skoglund expand on how such networks can help to reduce the environmental impact of transportation systems and improve efficiency of industrial processes.
Professor Gunnar Landgren was instrumental in creating one of the world’s most dynamic ICT hotspots. ACCESS Centre’s Chair of the Board is the node director of Europe’s biggest initiatives in ICT. His vision is that information and communications technology will have the same impact on society as the mobile phone, which has revolutionized life in developing countries over the last 20 years. He’s in the driver’s seat of a project that demands excellence in research as well as cooperation between the university and companies.
The big sign in the shop window reads “Buy a washing machine and get a great deal on green electricity!” Alongside is a smaller sign that spells out an offer from a provider of home automation systems to cut your electricity costs in half. You already receive free parking in exchange for the parking facility’s use of your electric-car battery when you’re not using the car. The smart grid concept goes hand in hand with the creation of a consumer-driven electricity market.
Majid Mohseni had been doing research in magnetic sensors before he came to KTH to continue his PhD subject in spintronics. Now he has defended his PhD thesis “Spin valves and spin-torque oscillators with perpendicular magnetic anisotropy”.
ICT at KTH has been successful in competing for increased National funding and in becoming one of the main partners to the Stockholm Node of the EIT Knowledge and Innovation Community for the ICT Area - EIT ICT Labs. Its Co-location centre is based at the Electrum building in Kista.
KTH research in the area of information and communication technology as well as computer science is at the highest international level. It is a strong contribution to the fact that Sweden is in a very prominent position within this field.
Sweden's most notable transport researcher has recently presented his thesis and it is an extensive report. Among other things, it appears that better vehicle technologies and fuels are not sufficient to achieve our climate goals, that there is a need to reduce car travel by 30 percent and that air traffic will surpass car traffic within 10 years as regards the emission of greenhouse gases.
KTH researcher Jorge Zapico has developed an application which can calculate the carbon footprint of individual websites. The application is called Greenalytics and matches the latest web statistics with environmental data. It turns out that the KTH website produces seven tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.
