Development and testing (internally at the UoS, and externally on-site) of a prototype acoustic sensing system to support the Company in undertaking acoustic sensor surveys on transformers. This project would include the development or use of a PicoScope product as a compact, low-cost solution for signal acquisition. The final system developed by the company would enhance its service capability and assist with securing new contracts with utilities.
