All projects

Here we have provided an overview of all the projects. The search facility enables you to find projects on various topics, which are presented in a clear manner. The project status is indicated by the green dots above the respective headings: project started, initial findings and project concluded.


In particular, the ability of rural low-voltage grids to absorb decentralised electricity generation is currently largely limited by the need to maintain the permissible voltages according to DIN EN...


Theoretical and applied scientists and industrial partners are working closely together on developing basic criteria for the stability, reliability, risks and market access of future-proof...

Map of europe shows the distribution of renewable energy systems in the 100% renewable energy scenario from the GENESYS projectdem Projekt GENESYS.

How could an optimal power grid in Europe look like? When considered in isolation, – i.e. in terms of a theoretical reconstruction – this question can be answered relatively easily. GENESYS2 is...

Challenge in the current grid operation: Maintaining the reactive power balance between the transfer nodes for the transmission and 110-kV distribution grids.

High-sea wind farms offer significant advantages for the electricity production: the wind conditions remote from the coasts are much more uniform and there is much more space than inland. But how can...

Graphical representation of wind speed, global radiationand the infeed from wind energy and photovoltaics resolved to the grid node level.

In the STERN research project under the direction of Dr Carsten Pape, researchers are working on depicting the residual load curve as precisely as possible in order to analyse the future electricity...

Basic information

The energy generated in a grid must always be equal to the energy consumed. The ancillary services are tasked with ensuring this.


Virtual power plants, active distribution grids, smart meters and adaptive protection systems – here you can find information about the most important aspects of smart grids.


What do direct and alternating current mean? How do they differ and what are the advantages and disadvantages?


How is our power grid structured? What sort of networks are there? What do security and quality of supply mean?
