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: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....

Im Focus: Chemical reactions in the light of ultrashort X-ray pulses from free-electron lasers

Ultra-short, high-intensity X-ray flashes open the door to the foundations of chemical reactions. Free-electron lasers generate these kinds of pulses, but there is a catch: the pulses vary in duration and energy. An international research team has now presented a solution: Using a ring of 16 detectors and a circularly polarized laser beam, they can determine both factors with attosecond accuracy.

Free-electron lasers (FELs) generate extremely short and intense X-ray flashes. Researchers can use these flashes to resolve structures with diameters on the...
