On the basis of the geographically distributed generation structures, this Bremen University research project aims to develop the special functional possibilities of wind turbines for the stability of the electricity supply system. The intention is to prevent widespread power outages.
Further to this, the project is intended to make it possible to restore the electricity supply using wind power: greater energy efficiency from renewable energies means lower carbon emissions from fossil fuels used to stabilise the grid. Since a widespread electricity outage also has a big impact on digital communications, this task needs to be carried out using the simplest possible means of communication.
One of the biggest challenges in the energy transition is to link up energy consumption and the highly volatile supply from renewable sources in such a way that security of supply is safeguarded even when there are lengthy gaps in supply – i.e. when there is little wind and sunshine. The autonomous re-start of the wind farm and the restoration of the electricity supply following a total blackout (black start capability) currently poses a challenge for the management of wind farms, even though this is not part of the grid connection requirements currently in force.
The project is financed with funds from the European Union and the State of Bremen, the Senator for Climate Change Mitigation, Environment, Mobility, Urban Development and Housing Construction, the Applied Environmental Research funding programme.
