Fraunhofer promotes Solar-powered Smart Homes - meet us at the Intersolar B2.354

13.06.2013
Electricity rates rise every year, continuously. At the same time, photovoltaic feed-in tariffs are on the decrease inexorably. Using solar energy right where and when it is generated becomes even more interesting.

We present solutions for boosting on-site consumption of PV power which benefits both the customer and the grid. Meet us at our booth B2.354 on the Intersolar Europe 2013 in munich and find about about how we can work together in the future.

Key areas of work are battery systems, energy yield forecasts, smart grid technologies including house bus systems. We offer our solutions under the following four brands:

- myPowerGrid: for energy storage
- PVCAST: energy yield forecasts,
- mySmartGrid: demand side management along with
- HexaBus as a flexible building blocks house bus system.
myPowerGrid delivers a centralized, easy-to-use management infrastructure for an aggregated distributed energy storage transparently serving the interests of electric utilities, TSOs, and private households. www.myPowerGrid.de

PVCAST is a precise and uncomplicated energy yield forcast for photovoltaic power plants up to six days in advance. A self-learning algorithm creates the forecast based on weather forecasts and the actual power generation of the previous weeks. A time-consuming and detailed specification of each plant is not required. www.pvcast.de

mySmartGrid is the intelligent device control system for private homes. Private households understand their power consumption, predict their PV power production and exchange experiences with a community.

With the upcoming HexaBus, mySmartGrid enables them to control their devices. www.mySmartGrid.de

HexaBus is an open-source house bus system based on the internet standard IPv6. It allows the implementation of arbitrary control scenarios and works with any device in the house, i.e. using a switchable plug. It is available license-free, and allows a decentralized control of devices - no central control is necessary.

Devices are not affected by failures of other devices. The flexible building blocks of HexaBus are designed to fit into heat pumps and inverters. Along with the energy management systems mySmartGrid and myPowerGrid, you have a powerful energy management solution kit at your disposal.

Additionally, we offer technology development that meets your individual needs - e.g. HexaBus can be fitted to your special requirements.

We are looking forward to meeting you!

The Fraunhofer Institute for Industrial Mathematics ITWM provides industry mathematics for the Energiewende, Germany's switch to Renewables. We simulate battery chemistry for better electric cars, we work with global players to find the best layout for huge solar parks on uneven landscapes, and we provide state-of-the-art technology for smart homes - solar-powered and grid-friendly. The Fraunhofer ITWM provides expert advisory services as well as market-ready innovative solutions. We combine consulting with deep technical expertise and development. We work with large companies and with small and medium enterprises - and have been doing this for almost 20 years.

Im Focus: Giant Magnetic Fields in the Universe

Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.

The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.

Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...

Im Focus: Tracing down linear ubiquitination

Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.

Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Im Focus: Polymer-coated silicon nanosheets as alternative to graphene: A perfect team for nanoelectronics

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.

Im Focus: Researchers Imitate Molecular Crowding in Cells

Enzymes behave differently in a test tube compared with the molecular scrum of a living cell. Chemists from the University of Basel have now been able to simulate these confined natural conditions in artificial vesicles for the first time. As reported in the academic journal Small, the results are offering better insight into the development of nanoreactors and artificial organelles.
