Demonstrator for a self-balancing smart grid node
The self-balancing, authentic smart grid node integrates various energy technology devices, including different actuators and sensors, (intelligent) electricity meters (Ipswitch, Pac Sentron), photovoltaic systems and solar batteries. In addition to developing a corresponding software architecture for monitoring, controlling and managing the system, we also created a mobile application that makes it possible to remotely monitor and manage the devices. Apart from monitoring the energy flow in the demonstrator, the integrated control system also allows the energy consumption to be adjusted at any time.
An additional goal is the development of an interface for determining what type of data is needed to link the different smart grid nodes (smart homes, e-vehicle batteries) with one another.
