Smart Power Grids

In this research area new methods, concepts and procedures are developed for the analysis, operation and design of the future decentralized power system with large shares of renewable energies (smart grids). Most relevant topics are:

  • Control and operation approaches for distributed generators, storage systems, electrical vehicles and controllable loads
  • Concepts for flexible decentralized power system architectures and approaches for their optimized design
  • Control and operation approaches (incl. state estimation) for decentralized power systems
  • Methods for reduction of complexity in simulation, optimization and operation approaches with regard to interdisciplinary analysis across voltage levels and energy sectors.
