The aim of cFlex is to tap unused flexibilities in cellular organized prosumer communities as a collective system (network) or as services to enable increased use of renewable energy sources in the distribution network and to coordinate production, storage, and consumption over long periods and regions. For this purpose, the cooperative bundling of different prosumers, network segments, and regions of (regional) Local Energy Communities (R / LECs) in cFlex aims to optimize the overall state of the energy grid. By applying a cellular approach in which data-based analysis, as well as neural forecasting and forecasting models, can automatically activate balancing mechanisms between energy supply and demand at different network levels.
The Department of Integrated Sensor Systems contributes expertise in distributed control systems. The main tasks are the development of use cases, the definition of interfaces and the implementation of control concepts to optimize the energy flow in energy communities for the benefit of its participants and to support the power grid to avoid supply bottlenecks on the local level.
