E.ON ERC - Automation of Complex Power Systems

Director:

Univ.-Prof. Antonello Monti, Ph. D.; Univ.-Prof. Ferdinanda Ponci, Ph.D.

Short name:

ACS

Info:

The Institute for Automation of Complex Power Systems focuses on the scientific and technological developments necessary for the transition to the next generation energy grids. In particular, an intelligent and flexible electrical grid must allow for new ways of managing power flows at all levels, particularly at distribution level. The multinational team of ACS researchers targets the seamless integration of the advances in power electronics, control design and communication technology, which are major enablers of the transition. This will lead to an intelligent grid with high penetration of renewable generation, active involvement of customers and concepts such as e-mobility, commonly referred to as Smart Grids.

Profile Area ECPE

The provision of sustainable energy and materials is clearly one of the major global challenges which were identified in the future strategy of RWTH Aachen University. The profile area Energy, Chemical & Process Engineering (ECPE) addresses the two most important pathways to achieve this goal: Improvements in energy and material efficiency and the transition to renewable sources.

More information on the profile area's key topics can be found here.

RWTH Aachen Profile Areas

RWTH Aachen University is convinced that in order to solve today's complex and multi-faceted problems, universities have to develop appropriate, integrated approaches. The Profile Areas are designed to address interdisciplinary topics and thus to enhance the University’s capability to engage in significant research activities and take on large-scale projects.
