  • The new Smart Energy System Lab has been launched. The participating students were welcomed to the Energy Lab 2.0 with a kick-off-event on June 27th. The laboratory is sponsored as an ExU activity within the University of Excellence Project "Research Infrastructures in Research-Oriented Teaching (RIRO)".


    During this laboratory, which is being offered for the first time, Master's students from the courses of study Computer Science, Electrical Engineering and Information Technology, Mechatronics and Mechanical Engineering will work on the following four topics from the field of energy systems:

    1. Detection of household appliances with the help of smart plugs
    2. Modeling of grid fault conditions including integration into the power-hardware-in-the-loop environment
    3. Data transport from different measuring devices for electrical consumers and generators
    4. Modeling of an on-load tap changer (OLTC) transformer including integration into the power-hardware-in-the-loop.


    In the following weeks, the students will familiarize themselves with their project topics and then work on their projects in intensive cooperation with the scientists of the IAI within the Research Platform Energy (RPE). The labs of the Smart Energy System Simulation and Control Center (SEnSSiCC) and the experimental buildings of the Living Lab Energy Campus (LLEC) will be integrated into the projects.


    For the students, this laboratory offers the opportunity to work in a real research environment on relevant topics related to sustainable energy systems and to deepen their knowledge.


    For the scientists at Energy Lab 2.0, the integration of their research topics into the teaching means a gain in new perspectives and early contact with future (young) scientists.


    We are looking forward to the time together and to exciting results!
