The Project ResiliEntEE
The aim of this joint project of scientists from the fields of energy and electrical engineering is to reliably determine the resilience of future energy supply systems and to find possibilities to increase it. To achieve this goal the models which were developed in the research project TransiEnt.EE to describe optimized integrated energy systems according to environmental and economic aspects, will be refined and their resilience will be evaluated. Resilience is to be understood as the ability of a system to sustain its functions even at the occurence of local disruptions. Therefore following tasks will be realized in the project:

1. expanding the models by spatially resolved, stationary and dynamic computations within the electric supply grids

2. gradually expanding the considered area at different levels of detail

3. developing and modelling different automation concepts

4. developing suitable critical scenarios and test cases.

As far as possible the software will be written using the equation-based and object-oriented programming language Modelica. After the completion of the project these model will be publicly available.

The Project IntegraNet
The IntegraNet and IntegraNet II research projects have the objective of conducting a detailed bottom-up / top-down analysis of the German electricity, gas and heating networks. In this way, the potential for energy balancing through sector coupling can be determined. The effects of sector coupling are examined at different levels of detail, both in terms of energy balance and simulations (

Project term IntegraNet: 01.07.2016 - 30.06.2019

Funding code IntegraNet: 0324027

Project term IntegraNet II: 01.11.2019 - 31.10.2022

Funding code IntegraNet II: 03EI1008
The project TransiEnt.EE
The aim of the project was to identify innovative and reliable ways to efficiently integrate renewable energies into existing urban energy systems to maximize the energy self-sufficiency of the energy system. The energy system was defined as the combination of heat and power plants, renewable energy systems, electricity, gas and district heating networks, as well as large and small energy consumers.

The experiments required for this are based on a concrete energy system, the energy system of the city of Hamburg. The investigations were carried out numerically using physically-based simulation models with different levels of detail.

The official short description of the project can be found here.

The final report can be found here.

Project term: 01.05.2013 - 30.04.2017

The TransiEnt Library
In the project TransiEnt.EE, a Modelica library for simulation of complex energy systems was created. This library is further developed in the projects ResiliEntEE and IntegraNet and can be downloaded on this website under the conditions of the 3-clause BSD license.
