»QGrid High-Availability Cells« at Xyna Konferenz 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

Xyna Konferenz 2016


24th November 2016 the 11th Xyna Konferenz takes place at the Kurhaus Wiesbaden. Nothing is so much for the transition to a digital world as the cloud. But are digital innovations bindingly connected to a cloud model? How innovations beyond the cloud will look like? 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 more
