Hannover Messe 2019 Virtual power stations: Intelligent bundling

Editor: Theresa Knell

At the TU Dresden, the team for Combined Hybrid Energy Systems (CHES) has developed new system architecture for effective and intelligent networking of small energy generation installations and storage units.

This can enable communication among hundreds of thousands of de-centralised micro-power stations in co-ordinated operation. Compared with today’s cloud-based systems, which can only co-ordinate a large number of installations using a massive computing power, this new control and regulation architecture from CHES enables bundling and cost-effective operation of multiple decentralised installations.

Self-learning control box

The fundamental building-block is the Dinco self-learning control box. This identifies sensors in the system and installation autonomously by methods of machine learning and can thus configure itself. Using the data and user-specific prognoses, these control boxes, in conjunction with the superordinate co-ordinator Coco, enable the installations to be used in harmony with renewable energy generation at the moment in question.
