Intelligent Electrical Power Grids (IEPG)
The field of the Intelligent Electrical Power Grids research program covers the generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy, and a characteristic is the system-oriented approach. Our research program covers the three different time scales for which power systems are usually studied: transient, dynamic and steady state behavior of power systems. The area of this research program is concerned with the technical, economical and societal performance of the electricity supply system. Theoretical and technological limits of current and future power systems and components are investigated taking into account the changing operating environment, e.g. the large-scale introduction of renewable and distributed energy sources and the application of new and sustainable technologies..
It is our mission to develop new knowledge in the field of Intelligent Electrical Power Grids to educate researchers and engineers and to support industry with knowledge, solutions and technologies. We aim to define the theoretical and technological limits of future electrical power systems in a changing world, influenced by the liberalization of the electricity market, the uncoupling of generation and transmission and the large scale introduction of renewable and dispersed energy sources, by the application of future technologies.
Our mission leads to a variety of questions which are addressed in this program and which awakens the interest of students for Intelligent Electrical Power Grids and makes them aware of a fundamental challenge for power engineering students: how to power the society, now and in the future.
