Home » Energy management and the challenges of an autonomous Off Grid energy system
At the Energy and Environment department of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg, they do have different research projects related to green energy contributing to the development of eco-cities.
On the Engineering side one goal is to be autonomous as far as possible in terms of thermal and electrical power supply. The aim is to achieve a self-sufficient supply in thermal (heating-cooling) and electrical energy produced on site in a regenerative manner. However renewable energy sources offer limited predictability and variability, which is a major challenge in an electricity grid where demand and supply must match at all times. To align electricity consumption and electricity production through variable renewable energy sources, demand response will play an important role in the future energy system. Demand response strategies are implemented with appropriate energy management systems, which enable demand to be shifted or reduced in order to improve the energy consumption and production profile of a building through optimal operational schedules. Model predictions and the fusion of the building energy system with ICT is crucial for assessing overall flexibility.

"The ABB Power Grids Jumet organisation is an innovative development and production facility of ABB that manufactures active filters and battery energy storage systems to support a stable grid. To test these systems we have acquired two Cinergia GE/EL +120kVA eplus units capable of doing grid emulation (AC + DC), operating as an electronic load (AC +DC) and being a battery emulator. We have experienced very good support from TTMS in obtaining these two Cinergia units. This included organising an on-site demonstration and supplying loan systems prior to the delivery of our final systems. This way we could start testing as early as possible. TTMS also organised training for the operators from the original manufacturer. This support allowed us to introduce the first battery energy storage systems even prior to the full delivery of the Cinergia systems."

“At the Energy and Environment department of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg we do have different research projects related to green energy contributing to the development of eco-cities. As a long-standing partner of our research unit, TT&MS has proven that they are able to answer even the most complex questions in a professional manner. They have shown that they are always up to date with the latest technology and do not spare any effort to look at the application and even the situation on site. The exchange of ideas was always very pleasant and took place quickly. We look forward to further years of fruitful cooperation.”
