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.

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.
