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: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...

Im Focus: Basel researchers succeed in cultivating cartilage from stem cells

Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.

Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
