  1. PhD Workshop Energy Informatics 2020

    For the 11th time, the PhD workshop on Energy Informatics invites PhD students to present their research ideas and methodology. This workshop is organized by the Leibniz University of Hannover in cooperation with the HESSO and supported by the German Informatics Society (Gesellschaft für Informatik (GI)) Special Interest Group “Energy Informatics (Energieinformatik)“ (GI WI-EINS). The workshop takes place in Sion, Switzerland, on October 27-38, 2020.

  2. Thomas Wolgast is one of the laureates of Lower Saxony’s Chamber of Engineers for excellent scientific works!

    Every year, the Foundation of Lower Saxony’s Chamber of Engineers offers a price for excellent bachelor, master and doctoral theses. We are glad to announce that our colleague Thomas Wolgast is one of this year’s laureates!

    The Chamber of Engineers awarded the price as part of their New Year reception on 23 January 2020 at the Niedersachsenhalle in the Hannover Congress Centrum. During the event, speeches were given by Lower Saxony’s secretary of the interior Dr. Bernd Althusmann and Prof. Dr. Armin Grunwald from KIT among others. Each of the laureates had the opportunity to present their awarded work as well.

    The awarded master thesis of Thomas Wolgast deals with voltage control in future smart distribution grids, a topic that gains more relevance with the increasing feed-in of fluctuating energy sources like wind and solar power systems. One common approach for the voltage control problem are multi agent control systems. As part of the work, two such agent based voltage control concepts were implemented into a simulation framework and applied to multiple test cases. This way, specific characteristics of the concepts and how they influence voltage regulation were worked out and evaluated.

    Thomas Wolgast created his master thesis here at the group Energy Informatics, Leibniz University Hannover. The supervisor of the thesis was Prof. Dr.-Ing. Astrid Nieße, Head of Group Energy Informatics.

  3. Project kick-off: STIM

    We are involved in the STIM (Smarte Transformatoren als Stromversorgung der Zukunft für den industriellen Maschinenbau) Project. The kick-off took place on January 16th. In the next 3 years, we, along with the IAL, are working together with several other partners like Block Transformatoren-Elektronik GmbH or the Hochschule Neu Ulm to design and to create a smart transformer, which hopefully increases the power-efficiency and also helps us to create smart services based on the collected data from several sensors. With these services we primarily want to reduce power consumption. We contribute our knowledge in topics like simulation and machine learning to this project. The project is also funded by the Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie (Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy).
