Quality control of hydrogen samples

Purity tests for the quality control of hydrogen are carried out at the Institute for Networked Energy Systems to support the coupling of chemical energy sources to the electricity system. The aim is to provide standard-compliant fuel for hydrogen-powered fuel cell cars.

HYPP research project

Plants only require certain parts of the electromagnetic spectrum for photosynthesis. If we wish to make optimum use of sunlight in parallel with energy production we can use the remaining wavelengths to generate electricity through transparent solar cells. The HYPP research project therefore involves developing a hybrid system that couples a bioreactor with a photovoltaic module.

In the network laboratory, the Institute for Networked Energy Systems uses a real-time simulation system to research new network structures in DC and AC operation. Here, scenarios can be simulated, for example, for the integration of electromobility, for the interaction of the power grid and digitalisation, or for system security.

High-resolution power grid simulation -

A server infrastructure with 14 TB RAM as well as 500 computing cores and eight graphics processors enables the high-resolution simulation of power grids at the Institute of Networked Energy Systems.

The Oldenburg DLR Institute of Networked Energy Systems develops technologies and concepts for the future energy supply on the basis of renewable energies. The focus is on the challenge of turning weather-dependent decentralised generation into stable and efficient energy systems. This transformation process is being researched within the framework of a consistent D3 approach (D3 = decarbonisation, decentralisation, digitisation). With its departments of Urban and Building Technologies, Energy System Technology and Energy System Analysis, the Institute is dedicated to system-oriented questions on the intelligent and efficient linking of the electricity, heat and transport sectors. System levels ranging from individual systems to 'smart' buildings to networked residential neighbourhoods and cities are considered. In addition, the Institute evaluates energy systems on a national and international level using its own network structure models and technology assessment methods.
