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: Attoseconds break into atomic interior

A newly developed laser technology has enabled physicists in the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics (jointly run by LMU Munich and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics) to generate attosecond bursts of high-energy photons of unprecedented intensity. This has made it possible to observe the interaction of multiple photons in a single such pulse with electrons in the inner orbital shell of an atom.

In order to observe the ultrafast electron motion in the inner shells of atoms with short light pulses, the pulses must not only be ultrashort, but very...

Im Focus: Good vibrations feel the force

A group of researchers led by Andrea Cavalleri at the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter (MPSD) in Hamburg has demonstrated a new method enabling precise measurements of the interatomic forces that hold crystalline solids together. The paper Probing the Interatomic Potential of Solids by Strong-Field Nonlinear Phononics, published online in Nature, explains how a terahertz-frequency laser pulse can drive very large deformations of the crystal.

By measuring the highly unusual atomic trajectories under extreme electromagnetic transients, the MPSD group could reconstruct how rigid the atomic bonds are...

Im Focus: Developing reliable quantum computers

International research team makes important step on the path to solving certification problems

Quantum computers may one day solve algorithmic problems which even the biggest supercomputers today can’t manage. But how do you test a quantum computer to...

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Demonstration of a single molecule piezoelectric effect

Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale

Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
