    ACS participation at IEEE IECON - Industrial Electronics Conference

    Lisette Cupelli, Robert Uhl, Marija Stevic and Marco Cupelli attended IECON 2016 ( conference in Florence, Italy. Our institute presented four papers. Marija Stevic presented the paper “Virtual integration of laboratories over long distance for real-time co-simulation of power systems”. Robert Uhl presented two papers: The first paper is titled „Nodal-Reduced Modeling of Single-Phase Dual-Active Bridge Converters for EMTP-type Simulations“ and is about an efficient approach for modeling Dual-Active Bridge DC/DC-converters in transient system-level simulations. The second paper is titled „Non-linear Behavioral X-Parameters Model of Single-phase Rectifier in the Frequency Domain“ and is about applying the X-Parameters modeling approach in power electronics driven power systems. X-Parameters is a non-linear behavioral modeling approach, until now only used in microwave engineering, for steady-state simulations in the frequency domain, taking the generation of harmonics into account. Lisette Cupelli received the award for the best presentation on her paper “Ancillary services from data center HVAC systems and back-up generator sets” at the Special Session "Efficiency of Large Data Centers".

    Workshop "Distribution networks for the Energy Transition - network structures, grid benefits, balancing capability" at TU Kaiserslautern

    On 27 September 2016, a workshop of the IEEE PES Germany Section on the topic " Distribution networks for the Energy Transition - network structures, grid benefits, balancing capability" took place at the TU Kaiserslautern. Experts from industry, grid operators and science discussed on how the network structures that have been developed over decades are still sustainable in a more decentralized generation environment. Presentations in various topic blocks, such as grid expansion requirements in the distribution grid, system services and network black start capability, as well as further development of system structures, accompanied the discussions. Tim Schlösser from the institute ACS participated in this workshop to discuss with researchers and representatives of network operators the challenges of the Energy Transition in distribution grids in order to identify solutions from different perspectives and further research requirements.
