Industrial/ Ph.D course in the Smart Transformer

Mar 29, 2017

The international three-day Industrial/ Ph.D. course in “the Smart Transformer, its Impact on the Electric Grid and Technology Challenges” took place between 22th and 24th of February at the Chair of Power Electronics of Kiel University. This course was offered as a part of running project ,“the Highly Efficient And Reliable smart Transformer (HEART), a new heart for the Electric Distribution System”, funded by European Research Council (ERC)  Consolidator Grant.

The Smart Transformer (ST), a power electronics-based transformer, can provide ancillary services to the distribution grids to support the grid management, in addition to the voltage adaptation. The Smart Transformer is a natural connection point for hybrid (AC and DC) grids both at MV and LV levels and is supposed to reach a market of US$204.3 million by 2020.

The Smart Transformer possible services to the electric grid plus the power electronics technologies which could enable these services were the main focus of this course. The course contained lectures and laboratory experiments .The instructors were Prof. M. Liserre from Kiel University; Prof. C. Vournas from university of Athens, and Dr. G. Buticchi form Kiel University.

Schleswig-Holstein is funding the construction of a medium voltage laboratory

Mar 27, 2017

The state is co-funding the construction of a medium voltage laboratory at the chair of power electronics from the “Landespgroamm Wirtschaft” (EFRE). This project follows the target to extend the research for the grid integration of renewable power plants to medium voltage, where already today all large plants are connected. With the availability of this infrastructure, it will be possible to investigate and solve problems in the actual electrical distribution grid. The laboratory will enable to test power electronics up to 10 kV AC and up to 1 MW power. Read more

Kolloquiumsvortrag, Prof. Tamas Kerekes - "Design of residential Photovoltaic systems – a guideline"

Feb 13, 2017

When & Where : 13.02.2016 , 17:15 - 18:45 , Technische Fakultät, Institut für Elektrotechnik und Informationstechnik, Kaiserstr. 2, Kiel, Raum: "Aquarium", Geb. D

Abstract: Photovoltaic technology continues to increase its share in the global energy market, with an exceptionally fast growth in the last few decades reaching a cumulative capacity of 227 GW by the end of 2015, with a predicted extra 50GW of new installations for 2016.  Residential PV systems are a key element in the success story of PV rooftop installations and large utility scale plants share about 50% of new installations today. ENTSO_E forecasts that by 2025 European power generation will have over 50% renewable, where solar will be expected to have a major role. If we combine the solar increase with even more wind penetration, then this will require a much more flexible system in order to make the best use of renewable energy sources when they are available.  By making the best use of cheap renewable electricity when it is available, storage can make the energy system more cost-effective. By adapting to demand and limiting the possibility of peak pricing, storage will also have a balancing effect on prices throughout the day. If solar is combined with storage then this will act as a bridging technology between the electricity, heating and cooling as well as transport sectors. Besides the rapidly developing battery storage capacity, the electrification of the transport sector and the use of electricity for heat purposes allow for an integrated approach of the energy system. This will provide new opportunities for European consumers and businesses, whilst potentially offering a variety of services to grid operators.

Sonderkolloquium, Prof. Concari, University of Parma - "Fault Diagnosis of Electrical Machines"

Feb 07, 2017

When & Where - 21.02.2017 ,15:00 - 16:30, Technische Fakultät, Kaiserstr. 2, Kiel, Raum: "Aquarium", Geb. D

Abstract: The fault diagnosis of electrical machines has been the subject of intensive research for several decades. Being able to detect or predict incipient faults before they impair the ability of the machines to function properly is a very welcome feature in industrial environments, where unscheduled downtime can cause production and financial loss.
Electrical machine faults include electrical stator faults, electrical rotor faults, eccentricity, bearing faults. Diagnostic techniques for the detection of such faults in electrical machines are reviewed, and their effectivity is assessed in different operating conditions, including closed-loop inverter-fed operation. Furthermore, the impact of wide-bandgap devices is discussed and prognostic techniques are reviewed, with particular focus on aerospace applications.

Nachwuchstalente mit Power

Jul 29, 2016

 Power girls and Power boys

Bei den „Power Girls & Power Boys Tagen“ am 18. und 19. Juli in der Technischen Fakultät der Christian-Albrechts-Universität zu Kiel (CAU) war Fingerspitzengefühl gefragt. Schülerinnen und Schüler der fünften und sechsten Klassen aus Kiel und dem Umland stellten ihr Können unter Beweis. Getreu dem Motto „Ausprobieren und Selbermachen“ erhielten die jungen Nachwuchstalente bereits zum achten Mal spannende Einblicke in Technik, Energiegewinnung und Elektronik. Angeleitet wurden sie von wissenschaftlichen Mitarbeiterinnen und Mitarbeitern des Fachbereichs Leistungselektronik.

Die Kinder verkabelten zum Beispiel Handtaschenlampen, bauten solarbetriebene Windenergieanlagen und löteten Herzen aus LED-Leuchten. Unter den 27 Schülerinnen und Schülern war Enrico von der Peter-Ustinov-Schule in Eckernförde einer der schnellsten Tüftler. „In der Schule haben wir sowas noch nicht gemacht“, berichtete der Zwölfjährige. Er sei ebenso wie sein Tischnachbar Felix Lewe (11) von der Gemeinschaftsschule Hassee begeisterter Hobby-Elektrotechniker. Auch bei den Mädchen waren Interesse und Konzentration groß. Der wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiter Stefan Walz freute sich über die rege Teilnahme an dem Projekt und die gute Zusammenarbeit mit den teilnehmenden Schulen: „Die Schülerinnen und Schüler werden dafür anlässlich von Projekttagen extra vom Unterricht freigestellt.“ Die selbstgebauten Geräte konnten die „Power Girls“ und „Power Boys“ am Ende mit nach Hause nehmen. Die Handtaschenlampen sorgen sicher noch weit über die lang ersehnten Sommerferien hinaus für die eine oder andere Erleuchtung.

Die „Power Girls und Power Boys Tage“ werden vom Fachbereich Leistungselektronik veranstaltet und von der Firma Jungheinrich und der Gesellschaft für Energie und Klimaschutz Schleswig-Holstein (EKSH) unterstützt.
