Aachen DC Grid Summit 2018

13.02.2018

Within the context of energy transition, direct current (DC) grids have gained more importance over the past few years and are considered a key technology in the research and development of our future energy supply. Therefore, FEN Research Campus will host the first “Aachen DC Grid Summit” (ADCGS) conference: the two-day event will bring together international experts from industry and science for mutual exchange on new developments in the area of DC technology.

ADCGS will be held on April 19 and 20, 2018, at Tivoli Business & Events in Aachen. Both conference days will feature exciting, practice-oriented presentations by DC experts in two parallel sessions. Day one focuses on the two sessions ”Grids – Planning, Operation, Protection”, led by Prof. Albert Moser (IAEW at RWTH Aachen University), and ”Grid Management and Automation”, led by Prof. Antonello Monti (ACS at RWTH Aachen University).


Aachen DC Grid Summit 2018

Renowned representatives from industry and academia will attend the summit as speakers, including presentations by Westnetz, Siemens, Amprion, ENTSO-E, RWTH Aachen University as well as the University of South Carolina, among others. On day two, participants will be offered the two sessions ”Components – Converters, Switches & Cables”, led by Prof. Rik W. De Doncker (PGS and ISEA at RWTH Aachen University), and ”Business Models, Innovations & Social Aspects”, led by Prof. Eva-Maria Jakobs (HCIC at RWTH Aachen University) and Prof. Reinhard Madlener (FCN at RWTH Aachen University).

Presentations on both industry and research topics will be held by experts from Mitsubishi Electric, Hager, AixControl, University of Düsseldorf and the Technical University of Darmstadt. Keynote speakers will be announced soon.

The conference gives the participants from industry and research the opportunity to enter into direct dialogue, to network among each other and to exchange interdisciplinary knowledge on anything related to DC technology. Besides the presentation sessions, there will also be an exhibition area, where industry and academia can present their latest research and project findings, for example in the form of posters.

Online registration for ADCGS 2018 is possible until April 19, 2018, via the conference website - early bird prices are available until February 15, 2018, inclusively.

Moreover, there is a “Call for Posters” that invites interested participants to submit relevant and innovative contributions (posters) on DC topics online.

FEN Research Campus is looking forward to two exciting conference days.

Im Focus: It’s All in the Mix: Jülich Researchers are Developing Fast-Charging Solid-State Batteries

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.

The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...

Im Focus: Color effects from transparent 3D-printed nanostructures

New design tool automatically creates nanostructure 3D-print templates for user-given colors
Scientists present work at prestigious SIGGRAPH conference

Most of the objects we see are colored by pigments, but using pigments has disadvantages: such colors can fade, industrial pigments are often toxic, and...

Im Focus: Unraveling the nature of 'whistlers' from space in the lab

A new study sheds light on how ultralow frequency radio waves and plasmas interact

Scientists at the University of California, Los Angeles present new research on a curious cosmic phenomenon known as "whistlers" -- very low frequency packets...

Im Focus: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....
