Netzbildende Wechselrichter, Hilfsdienste und Rapid Inverter Control Prototyping

Wir forschen an netzbildenden Steuerungen und Stromrichtern und diskutieren deren möglichen Einfluss in zukünftigen PV-Speichersystemen, Batteriewandlern und bidirektionalen Ladegeräten für Elektrofahrzeuge im öffentlichen Netz.

The shutdown of conventional power plants and the government's decision to accelerate the energy transition pose major challenges for grid operators. The provision of reactive power for voltage stability and the required instantaneous reserve for frequency stabilisation will increasingly have to be taken over by new grid components in the future. Therefore, transmission system operators demand grid-forming properties of systems for these purposes. There is discussion about projecting these properties to lower voltage levels to gain more grid stability. New products are being developed to meet these challenges.

Fraunhofer IEE has been researching grid-forming controls and power converters for more than 25 years, which have so far mostly been used in island grids and microgrids. In the future, it is likely that these controls will also be used in PV-storage-systems, battery converters and bidirectional chargers for electric vehicles in the public grid. Furthermore, suitable grid-forming controls could also help to supply grid sections without interruption in the event of a fault.

In order to effectively realise this type of control for different applications and to place products early in the market, we are developing a rapid inverter control solution with power hardware in the loop capacities. Our expertise in grid-forming control and battery storage is incorporated via libraries for model-based development. We are happy to discuss with you your requirements for such systems and your needs.

Search / advanced search of the idw archives
Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
