Lecture Series "Current Challenges in Electrical Engineering

The lecture series is organized by the Institute of Electrical Power and Control Engineering and the VDE University Group at the TU Ilmenau with the support of Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik e.V. Ilmenau.

In the summer semester 2024, the lectures will take place on Mondays 17:00 to 19:00 at the Ehrenberg Campus, Humboldtbau HU 201. It is also possible to participate in the events online.

April 08, 2024"Redispatch 2.0 -Practical experience from the perspective of a DSO"

Dipl.-Ing. Ronald Halbauer, Mitteldeutsche Netzgesellschaft Strom mbH

There is a broad social consensus for the further expansion of renewable energies. This growth must also be accompanied by grid expansion at distribution grid level. Despite massive investments, the operation of a congested grid has become the new normal. In order to ensure orderly distribution grid operation, MITNETZ STROM has been operating congestion management for 20 years. Redispatch 2.0 maps this system within the current legal framework. This presentation will present individual technical phenomena and shed light on the background.

April 15, 2024"Neighborhood energy management / on-site energy systems"

Prof. Dr. Peter Bretschneider,Sebastian Flemming, Tom Bender, Arne Martin, Fraunhofer IOSB AST Fraunhofer CINES: Team of the on-site systems activity

In order to achieve the expansion target of 215 GW for PV systems in 2030, an annual increase of approx. 19 GW of PV capacity is required. This requires more PV rooftop systems on detached and semi-detached houses as well as on apartment buildings and non-residential buildings. In urban areas in particular, there is still considerable and currently untapped potential for roof areas for the energy transition, which must be tapped locally in an accepted manner. Intelligent on-site systems based on the priority use of renewable energies are the key to tapping this RE potential in an accepted and sustainable manner for highly efficient use in the electricity, heating and mobility sectors. The presentation will explain what on-site systems are and provide an overview of on-site systems in Germany, and then use a specific example to highlight the potential of on-site systems in conjunction with predictive energy management options.
