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)
Cyber-attacks against Smart Grids have been found in the real world. Malware such as Havex and BlackEnergy have been found targeting industrial control systems (ICS) and researchers have shown that cyber-attacks can exploit vulnerabilities in widely used Smart Grid communication standards. This paper addresses a deep investigation of attacks against the(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)
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)
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 demand(More)
A microgrid is the power system of choice for the electrification of rural areas in developing countries. It should be able to adapt to changing load situations without the need for specialists to change the configuration of the microgrid controller. This paper proposes a self-configuring microgrid management system that is able to adjust both generation(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)
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)
