TRacebility of ENgineering INformation (TRENIN) EUREKA Project

KEEI, Croatia

KEEI

Končar Enterprise was started in 1921. In 1961, KONČAR Enterprise founded Electrotechnical Institute as an independent scientific institution with the status of a legal person. In 1991 the holding company KONČAR - Electrical Industries Inc. of KONČAR Group has formed KONČAR - Electrical Engineering Institute, Inc. KEEI. The KEEI was given status of an independent company, whose owner leaves the total profit for the purpose of its further development.

Core business of KEEI include development of products for electric power, electrical vehicles, wind power plants, distributed power generation and commuter trains. Business activities of the KEEI are performed in departments, with support of common services. Transformer department covers power, distribution and instrument transformers, reactors, high-voltage and measurement equipment. Switch gear and Control gear Department covers the fields of LV, MV and HV switch gear and control gear, metal-enclosed bus bars and atypical switching devices. Materials and technology department deals with welding, soldering, destructive and non-destructive material testing, fabrication of sintered and composite materials, defectoscopy, heat treatment and vacuum techniques, design of equipment for various technological processes. It also works with oil insulations, conductors and cables. Power electronics and control department covers power electronics, control, information technology, communication and electric motor drives for power industry, transport and industry.

Within the project KEEI will provide a detailed overview of the processes that are occurring in the electromechanical product development and design process. The participants will be able to see how are the documents created and what interactions occur in this stage. Also KEEI will provide the participants help with determining what information is interesting to be traceable.
