The transition of our energy supply to a fully renewable one is a major challenge of our society and an essential contribution to climate protection. To achieve this, generation and consumption of electrical energy have to be balanced on the energy market, and power grids must be operated reliably and efficiently. With the increasing digitalization, the historically evolved energy supply structures are becoming a complex and dynamic cyber-physical energy system (CPES) in which thousands of components interact with each other.
The Distributed Artificial Intelligence group is therefore working on equipping the distributed components of a CPES with intelligence and autonomy and networking them with self-organization processes. We work closely with the Department of Energy Informatics at Leibniz University Hannover and the OFFIS group Power Systems Intelligence.
