SimTech Concept – Simulation Technology Laboratory Concept

SimTech Concept

The SimTech Concept is the business plan and theoretical conception of a distributed power system research laboratory for real-time simulations as well as actual power systems hardware.

Changing and new technological and organizational requirements on our power supply system shall be analyzed by real-time simulation of electrical networks and components. Our goal is to create a research and simulation laboratory which offers possibilities to analyze and prove a vast number and multitude of different distributed generation systems. Results of these hardware, or software, or hardware-in-the-loop simulations of the SimTech Lab, on one hand should be applicable on a complex problem set, on the other hand simulation results are supposed to give precise predictions – also for future applications. This way, simulation results can be matched and validated with hardware tests in one lab. The combination of this system configuration with a heavy-duty simulation environment for electrical networks is an integral part to analyze interplay of equipment with the next power grid level.

About Marcus Meisel

Marcus Meisel, MSc. BSc. since 2007 in the Energy&IT Group at the Institute of Computer Technology at the TU Wien and currently works there as university assistant, teaching five courses, as project manager, leading five projects: RASSA-Architecture, Spin.OFF, iniGrid, eNDUSTRIE 4.0 and SIRIUS+, and for the European Technology Innovation Platform (ETIP-SNET WG4) leading the cybersecurity task force. He graduated in the Software & Information Engineering class of 2009 and Software Engineering & Internet Computing class of 2015. Latest projects were focused on security in smart grids (SG)2, establishing a steak-holder process for a smart grid reference architecture in Austria, (RASSA-Stakeholderprozess), the technology transition from centralized to distributed infrastructures (ICT4RobustGrid), the specification of web services for a secure smart grid (SmartWebGrid), the development of promising demand response scenarios up to 2020 (SmartResponse), the measurement of different technical customer electricity usage solutions (C2G), the simulation of geographically shiftable energy of buildings, electrical vehicles, and data centers (GeoGreen), the simulation of integrating electrified vehicles into the power grid (VehicleGrid), and the measurement and targeted modulation of electrical loads as a logical network, a virtual power plant (GAVE), the Integral Resource Optimization Concept (IRON). Apart from teaching, writing publications and proposals as a project assistant, his current responsibilities are gender equality and developing new research domains in the area of distributed communication technologies, Internet of Things, Industry 4.0, general Artificial Intelligence and Smart Energy Systems. Besides, he is a freelance professional photographer and works foremost with issues of science communication.
