Flexible Electrical Grids P1

The research campus flexible electrical networks (FEN) is an collaboration of different institutes of the RWTH Aachen University and industrial partners from different disciplines. The aim of the FEN is to develop innovative technical solution for future networks with a high share of decentralized renewable energies. The ISEA participate in Project 1. The Project investigates the modelling, planning and assessment of future networks. Therefore methods for the planning and operation of DC-networks as well as hybrid AC- and DC-networks are evaluated. The ISEA is engaged in the working package which deals with storage system in DC-networks. Therefore operation scenarios are investigated. The influence on the lifetime and the economics of storage systems in possible DC scenarios are assessed.
