E-mobility and Prosumer Integration

300 million electric vehicles by 2050 in Europe will increase electrical consumption by 20% and potentially triple peak load. We want to enhance their inherent flexibility and ensure that they facilitate the green transition by integrating solar and wind energy, while safeguarding power system secure operation. Smart control approaches and advanced power electronics are the fundamental building blocks.

Electrification of mobility and prosumer solutions are at the center of our research. This includes grid-tied power converters for the pro-active grid integration of mobility assets along with behind-the-meter technologies. Mobility assets consist of light and heavy vehicles, marine vessels, and rail vehicles, as well as the associated charging infrastructures. Modelling, design and control by use of modern control theory are applied to ensure optimal design, coordination and cyber-security.
