ProAktivNetz analyzed how distributed Renewable Energy Sources (RES) can be optimally integrated in real network operation, considering planned shutdowns or unforeseen disturbances within the distribution grid. Reacting to these occurences, and the correlation between them, is a great challenge for future operation software. The project therefore developed and tested appropriate concepts and algorithms for an optimized automated operation of the distribution network, taking into account the actual and future schedules of distributed RES. The solutions considered modelling of the decentralized generation(photovoltaic and hydroelectric power plants), algorithms for planned outages as well as disturbances in the distribution network. Main goal of the project was to ensure a safe and efficient operation and maximize the integration of distributed RES in all operating situations of future active distribution grids.




About energyit

Energy & IT is a research group at the Institute of Computer Technology at the Vienna University of Technology. We work in research projects of two domains, on one side power engineering and information technology (IT) on the other side, with our goal of connecting both fields of research. The CO2-complex of problems, rising energy demand, and use of IT are causing a fundamental change of electrical energy usage. The tasks of IT inside the energy system starts with sensory data acquisition of usage data, including databases, electrical energy services, up to global distributed control mechanisms of distributed energy resources.
