June 11th 2020
An important element in the reduction of CO2 is the change of vehicles with internal combustion engines to electric battery powered vehicles. The as such produced renewable energy can be used for individual mobility as well as for a temporary intermediate storage of excess energy. A viable electric mobility concept requires however stable cycle batteries with high specific energy (minimising weight, maximising driving range).

Abstract: In this talk we focus on the various energy grids, their coupling, and the control of the grids while having more and more embedding of renewables, and various storage devices. The two perspectives and the integration thereof that will be treated are the physical layer  and the optimization layer of a grid, where market structures are relevant. A combination of passivity based control techniques, as well as optimization in a combined distributed and hierarchical market structure will be considered.
