Moving Integrated Product Development to Service Clouds in the Global Economy - Proceedings of the 21st ISPE Inc. International Conference on Concurrent Engineering, CE 2014 | Year: 2014

Through a broad approach about reputable methodologies of Product Development Process (PDP), this paper proposes a model of development to be considered in designing and management of R&D project of the Research and Development Program of the Brazilian Electricity Sector regulated by the Brazilian Electricity Regulatory Agency (ANEEL). Such projects, guided by the search for innovative products and technologies in response to technological challenges of the power sector, are well defined by PMBOK Guide of Project Management Institute as "a temporary endeavor undertaken to create a product, service or result". This means that, for a R&D project to fulfill the principle of temporariness, its management should seek to achieve pre-established goals, following appropriate processes, technologies and teams involved in problem solving principles for development until it gets the achievement of the planned product. In this sense, the objective of this work is to demonstrate that, as in the industry, PDP methodologies may be also suitable for these R&D projects, ensuring better adaptation of the results to customer needs and strengthening the relationship between university and industry in the R&D process of the electricity sector. This research addresses a compilation about several PDP models already established by the industry with a view to creating a suitable development model to the R&D projects of the electricity sector. The model emphasizes the constructive interaction between the various stages of development methodology (concepts of Concurrent Engineering) and multidisciplinary teams fully integrated with the innovation process. The proposal shows to be promising to induce to the reduction of the typical limitations of segregated and sequential activities observed in many of the projects in R&D of electric sector. © 2014 The Authors and IOS Press.

The current article reaffirms MOR&D as a practical application through a case study in order to propose a production line design for a device that was created and developed previously in R&D projects within the R&D ANEEL (National Electric Energy Agency) Program. The lack of specific methodological models for product development in R&D projects in the Brazilian electricity sector generated the need for this specific knowledge. From a comprehensive research about respectable models of product development, the authors developed a suitable model for planning designs framed within the R&D Program of Brazilian Electric Sector regulated by ANEEL. The developed model promotes integration and dynamism between development stages and multidisciplinary teams. The model, named MOR&D, is comprehensive enough to meet the most types of R&D projects assigned to the R&D ANEEL Program and contains the main recurring concepts in product development, reason of its flexibility and adaptability. © 2015 The authors and IOS Press.

43rd International Conference on Large High Voltage Electric Systems 2010, CIGRE 2010 | Year: 2010

This article presents compact transmission lines for 69 kV, 138 kV and 230 kV, that have been developed by Copel since 1975. Concrete poles with 22 m of average height are used, with distances between phases of 1.2 m (69 kV), 1.7 m (138 kV) and 3.0 m (230 kV). These lines are intended for use on urban or semi-urban areas. All studies are described, as well as details, measurements and results obtained since this standard was first implemented.
