Digitalization and System Technology

Topic 2 “Digitalization and System Technology” addresses R&D on technical system design and resilient (real-time) operation of decentralized integrated energy systems. For this purpose, Topic 2 will develop models, methods and tools for optimization-based design, scheduling and control of energy systems and demonstrate the technical feasibility of different hardware and software solutions in smart energy system labs, e.g. Energy Lab 2.0 at the KIT, Living Lab Energy Campus at the FZJ and the DLR Grid-Lab. The temporal resolution and timeframe of the quantitative technical simulation and optimization models ranges from μs to years, whereby model structures and parameters will be iteratively refined, e.g. based on insights gained in the technical real-world laboratories.
