Research project VeN²uS dealing with safe power supply operation from renewable energies
Together with ten partners we take on a great challenge concerning power generation: avoiding power bottlenecks caused by fluctuating energy feeding. The goal of the interdisciplinary research team is the implementation of a flexible grid protection system which ensures safe power generation from renewables.
VeN²uS aims to explore an adaptive grid protection system which avoids the unwanted shutdown of the decentralized generating plants. Thereby, it counteracts conventional protection concepts and encourages the integration of renewables.
This can be done by automatically adjusting the protection parameters during topology changes and power flow shifts. For that purpose, an adaptive algorithm for network protection is developed. Simultaneously, reliable and resistant test concepts for communication and protection of the grid system are investigated. The results are demonstrated subsequently inside the laboratory and for the first time across Germany as well as field study.
The focus of amperias GmbH in this project is the exploration of embedded security features ensuring a reliable and safe communication in the environment of sensors for critical infrastructure. Previous experiences from multi-year cooperation within Trusted Computing Group and Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) are brought into the current project.
VeN²uS is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in the seventh energy research program. The funding period includes three years which started in September 2021.
