Sergey Kryltsov, student of the Mining University, was awarded with a grant for a solution, which helps improving electric power quality by keeping operating standards in accordance with specified values. This issue is of specific importance to large-scale enterprises, as any disruptions badly affect profitability.

In order to improve the power quality, it should be measured first, but it is a time-consuming process. It takes as long as 20 milliseconds to measure some parameters. New devices, which utilize our innovative features, may perform required measurements in 5 milliseconds, four times faster as before

Among other innovations, presented by young researchers from the Mining University, are new developments aiming at improving gold recovery efficiency, reducing man-caused impact of mining enterprises on ecosystems and some others as well. As noted by German professors and businessmen, these innovative projects, developed by students from St. Petersburg, both Russian and European businesses may consider being worthy of note.
