When e-mobility slows down the grid

“Rotterdam has experienced a problem that will become increasingly common in Germany. Due to the promotion of electric cars, the demand for charging power is growing massively. Without load management, this becomes a grid problem.”

This is how the grid operates in times of e-mobility

Only by creating transparency of the grid capacity through hybrid grid condition calculations, it is possible to control loads. With model data, secondary data and real measurement data, it is possible to determine the available capacity, which is transmitted to the individual players in the charging infrastructure on the basis of a Universal Smart Energy Framework, or USEF for short. For the implementation, it was necessary to integrate new measurement hardware, battery storage and controllable local network transformers.

Venios takes over the load management in the following aspects:

  • Grid security analyses with continuous calculation of capacity and flexibility
  • Avoidance of overload at the transformer through load reduction
  • Generation of optimal system schedules
