Master Thesis Proposal - Smart Location of Breakdowns hos Kamstrup

Are you considering writing your master thesis in collaboration with a company? Do you want to tap into a ”real world” sustainable business opportunity? And do you want to make a difference by analyzing the business potential in using data and analytics in relation to predict cable breakdowns?


The Opportunity
Electricity providers must operate fast in case of cable breakdowns. Cable faults are difficult to predict and costly to prevent by traditional approaches. With data and advanced analytics, it might be possible to geographically locate the breakdowns and repair it fast!

At Kamstrup we are curious about:​

  • How big a pain is this for utilities?​
  • Evaluating the business potential​
  • What is the current state of the art?​
  • How could a disrupting business model look like?​
  • Who could be interesting partners?


  • Can we build a POC that illustrates the principle based on historic data?
  • Are there data that Kamstrup could generate that would support substation evaluation?

Field of Interests: Engineering/Business
We are looking for a master student within the field of either business, engineering or in the crossfield. In order to succeed the project you must be ambitious and eager to contribute to the green transition in an international context. The final specification of the project will be agreed on based on your interest and educational background.
