The DAI-Labor Smart Microgrid Testbed is located centrally in Berlin at the Telefunken building on the campus of the Technische Universität Berlin. It has been built as a testbed for research projects in the e-mobility and smart grid domain. It is continuously extended to present research results from projects to a wider public. It demonstrates the seamless integration of mobility, distributed energy production and storage into a smart sustainable living.
The focus of DAI-Labor’s work in the testbed lies upon various goals. In addition to the overall goals of realizing optimized personal mobility for each e-vehicle user and, methods of non-discriminatory access to charging stations, one objective is to ensure electricity grid stability and support the integration of renewable energy sources in various e-mobility-scenarios. In this field of research, the testbed allows to undergo the process of technical realization, potential analysis and cost efficiency planning.
The testbed is built on an area of around 200 m²:
The Smart Micro Grid provides a good example of IOLITE’s smart city integration capabilities. The testbed consists of 19 devices and sensors with 157 data points connected via 6 protocols / APIs.
The infrastructure is managed by the IOLITE Operating System, connecting all devices and sensors and making them interoperable for over-arching energy management use cases.
Additionally the testebed is equipped with the Smart Building Console. Grid operators benefit from the easy and intuitive user interface. A dashboard visualizes all devices and sensors at a glance. Additional views enable control and configuration of automation szenarios.
