IKT free – Robust distribution networks even in the face of information and communications (ICT) infrastructure malfunction or failure
Security is absolutely critical when it comes to digitalised energy systems technologies. The distribution grid is an increasingly networked energy system. The project IKTfree aims to preserve the distribution grid as a robust system in the face of interruptions or the failure of information and communications technologies (ICT). In collaboration with elenia, the Institut für Hochspannungstechnik und Elektrische Energieanlagen of the Technische Universität Braunschweig, the Institute of Networked Energy Systems is designing a descriptive model of the entire system that can simulate a wide variety of scenarios. The network laboratory will provide an accurate representation of the distribution network for producers and consumers and will be used to validate simulation results.
