Fraunhofer ITWM pioneers open energy management

06.06.2012
Fraunhofer ITWM already provides the technology needed for tomorrow's smart grid.

The expansion of renewable energies is characterized by de-centralized energy generation and storage. When plenty of consumers turn to prosumers that also produce energy, intelligent energy management solutions are needed.

Featuring the open energy management platform mySmartGrid and an upcoming yield forcast technology, prosumers are empowered to maximize their PV on-site consumption with myPVSpy.

Balancing energy production and consumption is made easy with the mySmartGrid platform. Fraunhofer integrates a complete set of devices and web technologies: Based on independent metering and the intelligent yield forecast PVCAST, user-friendly visualizations are generated, as well as schedules for switching devices through flexible home automation components. Combined with de-centralized energy storage in myPowerGrid, the expansion of renewable energies is going to take place in private households.

The technically mature mySmartGrid platform is ready to be applied by retailers such as energy-cooperatives, PV installers and communities of ecologically aware people. Retailers benefit from the commitment to open source technology that allows for tailored systems with minimum effort. Installation and end customer support processes are made as easy as possible. The production-grade remote support system is already built-in.

End customers maximize their return on investment in PV power plants by achieving an excellent price-performance ratio. Additionally, vendor-independent PV monitoring functionality prevents unnoticed yield losses. Recorded consumption and production data can be compared at a glance. Optionally, the platform is extended with HexaBus home automation components for controlling devices.

Please visit us at booth B2/514 on the Intersolar exhibition in Munich from Wednesday, June 13, to Friday, June 15, 2012.

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....

Im Focus: Researchers Develop Data Bus for Quantum Computer

The quantum world is fragile; error correction codes are needed to protect the information stored in a quantum object from the deteriorating effects of noise. Quantum physicists in Innsbruck have developed a protocol to pass quantum information between differently encoded building blocks of a future quantum computer, such as processors and memories. Scientists may use this protocol in the future to build a data bus for quantum computers. The researchers have published their work in the journal Nature Communications.

Future quantum computers will be able to solve problems where conventional computers fail today. We are still far away from any large-scale implementation,...

Im Focus: Wrinkles give heat a jolt in pillared graphene

Rice University researchers test 3-D carbon nanostructures' thermal transport abilities

Pillared graphene would transfer heat better if the theoretical material had a few asymmetric junctions that caused wrinkles, according to Rice University...
