Future Grid & PV Power Plants

Tuesday, July 20, 2021
11:30 am - 01:00 pm
ICM München
Room 13 B

The number of PV power plants is rising rapidly. If they are to be effectively integrated in our energy system, power grids need to adapt. The rise of PV power plants, often relatively small in scale, increases the distribution of energy generation. Meanwhile, the weather-dependent nature of solar power makes accurate forecasting essential - in terms of weather and climate but also energy generation and demand. In this session speakers will discuss how renewable energy generation and grid operation can be aligned to function as a single reliable and resilient system.

Lindig (European Academy Bozen/Bolzano (EURAC) Research)



Sascha Lindig works as a researcher at EURAC in Bolzano/Italy, where he is currently completing his doctorate in cooperation with the University of Ljubljana/Slovenia as part of the H2020 Marie-Sklodowska-Curie Solar-Train project. His studies focus on statistical models for the quantification of the degradation of PV systems, degradation patterns and the economic evaluation of technical failures in PV systems. He first studied photovoltaic and semiconductor technologies at the University of Applied Sciences in Jena/Germany and then environmental and energy technologies at the HTWK Leipzig/Germany, where he received his Master of Engineering in 2014.


Allenspach (ZHAW - University of Applied Sciences Zurich)



After his studies in energy engineering, Cyril has been working with Franz Baumgartner in PV system research at the Institute of Energy Systems and Fluid-Engineering since 2019. Main focus of his research is laboratory testing of PV system components, where he examines the efficiency of PV inverters, the performance of module-level power electronics and transients of battery systems. His activities further include the simulation of PV performance in shaded conditions and heat pump - PV control strategies.
