Hier eine kleine Auswahl von Projekten, an denen wir in den letzten Jahren aktiv mitgearbeitet haben

Smart Grid operation

Verteilersystembetreibers (VSB)

Vor dem Hintergrund lokaler Netzprobleme (z. B. Spannungsüberhöhungen, Phasenunsymmetrie und thermische Belastung durch Oberschwingungen), die durch eingebettete Erzeugungsanlagen und elektronische Lasten entstehen, ist ein Wandel beim Betrieb der Verteilernetze erforderlich. Verteilernetzbetreiber, die bisher für die Wartung und den Betrieb des (statischen) Netzes zuständig waren, müssen nun die Rolle des Verteilersystembetreibers (VSB) übernehmen, um die an diese Netze angeschlossenen Geräte aktiv/dynamisch zu verwalten. Dazu gehören intelligente Netzschaltanlagen sowie eingebettete Erzeugungsanlagen und Lasten (in Zusammenarbeit mit ihren Eigentümern). Es wird ein Marktansatz angestrebt, der eine preisabhängige Reaktion auf die Nachfrage (DR) vorschreibt. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf der technischen Herausforderung und den damit verbundenen regulatorischen Fragen, die es zu bewältigen gilt.

Sustainable energy technologies


Netzgekoppelte Durchflussbatterien sind aufgrund der Entkopplung von Leistung und Energie, der fehlenden Selbstentladung und des hohen Recyclingpotenzials eine geeignete Technologie. Sie haben jedoch spezifische Anwendungen, für die sie im Vergleich zu anderen gebräuchlicheren Typen wie Li-Ionen-Batterien geeignet sind. Der Schwerpunkt liegt auf der Betriebslogik und den kritischen Reaktionszeiten, die für diese Technologie charakteristisch sind.

Simulation and control of electrical systems

Simulation von Steuerungssystemen

Elektrische Fehler in Motoren und Generatoren (z. B. in Windenergieanlagen) können aufgrund der durch Kurzschlüsse erzeugten Überhitzung schnell zu einem Totalausfall führen. Es ist absolut entscheidend, einen solchen Fehler zu erkennen und ihn dann zu isolieren oder die Maschine anzuhalten, bevor irreparable Schäden entstehen. Die physikalische Asymmetrie, die in die Wicklung des Motors/Generators eingebracht wird, wirkt sich auch auf die Steuerung aus, z. B. bei einem Antrieb mit variabler Drehzahl und Frequenz. Darüber hinaus verändert das Steuersystem auch die Art und Weise, wie sich der Fehler im Strom und in den Schwingungen des Systems manifestiert, und erschwert so die Fehlererkennung.
