Optimization and Control in Smart Grids

Power grids are highly interactive and complex systems which, with the integration of renewable energy sources, become increasingly difficult to control with the integration of distributed renewable energy sources. In order to keep the future power grid stable a common communication infrastructure shall be installed which allows for reporting and even controlling components connected to the power grid. For the future power grid (amongst others) the following questions need to be addressed:

These and further questions will be addressed in the project SwarmGrid. TI is responsible for planning the underlying communication system.
