No participant requirements

Skills to be acquired in this module

The students will learn different approaches to integrate distributed facilities, the regulatory framework, relevant standards and architecture concepts of energy management systems and will be able to apply this knowledge.
Professional competence
The students:

  • develop and evaluate IT-architectures for energy management systems
  • model objects of this domain appropriately
  • model energy information systems
  • realise and differentiate advanced tasks of decentralised energy management systems

Methodological competence
The students:

  • identify problems of energy management, analyse these problems systematically and provide solutions
  • apply different simulation approaches of decentralised plants and consumers

Social competence
The students:

  • discuss solutions for energy management systems in the group
  • develop use cases in teams
  • present self-developed solutions

The students:

  • reflect their actions with regard to structuring and decomposing systems
  • reflect their own use of power as a limited resource
Module contents

This module provides the computer science basics for energy management. It provides the requirements of energy supply information systems with the focus on technical components and the requirements of decentralised and renewable energy plants.
These are:

  • Architectures for energy information systems, e.g. SOA, Seamless Integration Architecture (IEC TC 57), OPC-UA
  • Norms and standards of energy industry data models (CIM, 61850)
  • Systematisation of energy information system requirements based on ontologies
  • Development, analysis and adaption of energy industry reference models and processes
  • Methods and technologies to support energy industry processes
  • Methods and algorithms to support decision processes of the decentralised energy plants control
  • Smart Grid plant communication, particularly for load management
  • Methods for modelling and simulation of power supply system dynamics
