Research and Development
We believe that the basis of innovation and development is applied research, so we decided to implement it by strengthening relationships with research institutes and universities. STAER SISTEMI has a strong partnership with the University of Tor Vergata, La Sapienza of Rome, Roma Tre and the University of Oslo.
STAER SISTEMI is proposed as a link between university laboratories and the market. Just in laboratories and in the places of university research insights are born, and you forward the testing of prototypes that will make a difference in the world of tomorrow. STAER SISTEMI identifies potential innovative projects that are in an advanced stage of research and by providing its technology, its expertise and professionalism, bets in sectors and markets in developing or have not yet been explored.
We invest about 10% of our revenues in independent industrial research and in collaboration with scientific institutions.
Through scholarships and internships for recent graduates in subjects related to our fields of application, we introduce young people to the labor market, encouraging them to satisfy his own quality and professional attitudes. We keep up to date know-how with university research to develop innovative solutions.
Innovation – Energy Management+ Tor Vergata
The product consists of a hardware with supporting software, which realizes the functions of Energy Management. This product, which is already in our catalog (Energy Management), supports the operation and management of facilities for the production of energy from renewable sources. Thanks to an update HW & SW, the new release (Energy Management +) will aim to manage the production of energy and especially the monitoring of consumption and losses that occur during transport and the effective use of energy. The main areas of application concerning the management of installations where the energy is used (ie shopping centers, hotels, hospitals and industrial plants, data centers, …) as well as possibly produced there (ie photovoltaic, solar thermal, cogeneration). Energy Management + will implement energy saving and eco-friendly policies, but also cost containment management. Will be prepared interface to sensors and actuators (energy monitoring, data logging and remote control), for processing, modeling and automate realtime conditioners, boilers, UPS, … In addition, there is a gateway function to devices and systems for ICT, home and building automation for the economic optimization of consumption through the implementation of energy demand management algorithms.
FILAS – Energy Harvesting (La Sapienza)
Through the use of innovative materials is possible to verify the structural integrity (health integrity) of critical components, such as those used in aerospace and rail.
The challenge Staer Systems wants to face is the possibility of using energy recovered from the environment (energy harvesting) to power sensors (temperature, presence of fire, …), for example, installed on trains (even for goods) , and to allow the transmission of information (via protocols that require a low power as zigbee) to the receiving station located on the locomotive and from this to another mail locally on the tracks, and then remotely.
Other possible applications concern the monitoring of the health of older people or athletes, monitoring of suspended structures (bridges, photovoltaic and wind power, …), supply sensors typical building automation (sensors, temperature, brightness, …).
Algorithm PV – photovoltaic (Tor Vergata)
STAER Sistemi has manufactured a product for the management of PV systems, in which stands out the appearance of the monitoring production. To this end, it is made of a mathematical model of the various components of the plant, able to evaluate the expected productivity from the sensing field, comparing it in real time with that which is actually given to the network. The objectives of precision pre led to a critical review of the scientific literature and design systems on the market. It is defined as a pattern, which, although derived from PVsyst and CEC, introduces original features and improvements. The performance of the system are being validated at the University of Rome Tor Vergata with which Staer Systems collaborates. It is believed that an effective monitoring system will contribute not only to the profitability of enterprise to maximize the environmental objective typical of the production of electricity from renewable sources.
