  • Master thesis

    Background

    Due to the increasing integration of decentralized power genera-tion systems, distribution network operators are dealing with growing challenges. Low investment costs and high electricity prices of PV are making them more attractive. A decisive criteri-on for the design of new PV-plants is often the voltage mainte-nance in low load cases. In order to comply with the required limits, the network operator provides the subscriber with a method defining certain requirements regarding the reactive power provision and that should be considered in the design pro-cess. According to VDE AR 4105, there are three methods that can define the requirements of the reactive power provision.

  • Projectseminar

    Background

    In the course of the German phase-out of nuclear and coal energy, large power plants in the German transmission grid will be disconnected from the grid until 2038. With the shutdown of large power plants, infeed will be shifted from higher to lower voltage levels. This is accompanied by the need for plants connected to the distribution grid to provide more and more grid services. Due to the volatility of generation from renewable energy plants and the fact that grid expansion cannot keep up with the speed of renewable expansion, many tasks arise for grid management. Renewable energy plants in the distribution grid must be involved in congestion management and redispatch in the most cost-effective and intelligent way possible.

  • Projectseminar

    Background

    In the course of the German phase-out of nuclear and coal energy, the large power plants in the German transmission grid will be disconnected from the grid until 2038. With the shutdown of large power plants, the possibility to react flexibly to changes in the active and reactive power demand in the transmission grid will also decrease. One possibility to cover the active and reactive power demand in the future is to use the flexibility potential from the subordinate “active distribution grid”. Here, controllable renewable energy plants in the lower voltage levels offer new P-Q-potentials to support the transmission grid.
