Upcoming challenges for LV grids include a high penetration of distributed energy resources and electric vehicles. The project " DG DemoNet – Smart LV Grid " aims to enable an efficient and cost effective use of existing grid infrastructures based on a three-step concept: intelligent planning, on-line monitoring and active LV grid management.(More)
— Increasing electricity demand and upcoming shortages of resources, make on-line energy management like peak-load reduction and control energy provision by the demand side of the electric power system a valuable method for keeping the grid stable and efficient. For developing the next generation if these methods, a simulation environment for studying(More)
The rising share of energy generation of renewable energies leads to a more volatile energy generation. Large conventional generation capacities have to be kept in the system in order to smooth out the generation patterns of distributed generators. The controllability of electricity generation is on decrease. To improve adaptability of power systems due to(More)
This work aims to optimize transportation processes in production by throwing objects between the working stations instead of transporting them on conveyed belts. One aspect of this new approach is the accurate prediction of interception positions of thrown objects with the catching robot. In a first step, this work analyzes the variation of the flight(More)
Despite the recent easing of electricity wholesale prices, the absolute level of on-peak electricity prices for most markets is tremendously high. The German on-peak electricity wholesale price is about 290% higher than six years ago, which has resulted in tariff hikes. These tariff hikes burden economies worldwide and result in higher inflation or economic(More)
Optimizing the energy system is vital for supply safety and efficient operation. One part of such optimization efforts are demand side measures. This article discusses a simulation platform for automated demand side management, i.e. automated load management. Up to now, the strategies and algorithms that decided where and when to take influence on the loads(More)
While distributed generation (DG) from renewable energy resources is seen as key element of future energy supply, current electricity grids are not designed to integrate a steadily increasing share of distributed generators. The hierarchical network topology was designed for unidirectional power flows and passive operation. In order to avoid excessively(More)
The IEC 61850 standard originally was developed for the substation automation. During the last years it was adapted for the integration of distributed energy resources into communication networks. There are however specific requirements in this new field of application. Many small and midsize manufacturers are using as controllers a big variety of different(More)

Facing the shortage of energy resources and rising energy costs, it is crucial to increase the efficiency of energy usage. Daily consumption peaks in electrical power grids result in the necessity to maintain overcapacities that are only temporarily used. Although already deregulated, today's power markets still lack incentive for large consumer groups to(More)
