The Illuminator is a development kit for demonstrating the challenges of the energy transition and the benefits of intelligent multi-energy systems. Such a development kit is complex and requires a multi-disciplinary approach. The Illuminator was initiated by and is developed by the PowerWeb institute, and will help students and policy makers to better understand the complexity of the energy transition
The energy components (generating, carrying, storing, and consuming) are downscaled to table top level, whereas the intelligent operational controls are programmed on a mini-computer (raspberry pi).
