»QGrid High-Availability Cells« at Xyna Konferenz 2016

01.09.2016

The blackout threatens: »Federal Government observed faults in the network«, reported the German Business News on 25th August. The President of the Federal Office for Civil Protection, Christoph Unger, warned: »The long-lasting, widespread power outage is the central challenge we faced us for us.« The aspect of the Blackout avoidance for critical infrastructure is essential for a high-tech society like ours. Besides avoiding area-wide blackouts it is very difficult to solve the problem of restarting of the networks. This is a non-trivial solution in a synchronous network. Analogous to shipbuilding it is recommended the withdrawal of security bulkheads and thus segmentation of the network. How can such a thing to be realized? In particular, the coupling of the resulting sub-networks and micro grids is a challenge and requires new concepts for power transmission. read more

What challenges we will be confronted with – technically, economically, but also politically? These are the questions we will discuss this year at the Xyna Conference 2016 of the GIP Research Institute.read more
