Project description

Renewable energy systems are subject to the strong variability of their corresponding energy sources. Because current energy converters are insufficiently accommodated, they fail to yield optimal energy efficiency and economic reliability. Energy uptake will be optimized both numerically and experimentally by establishing variability-adapted systems that amongst others consider the interaction between the various electrical, mechanical and other physical domains.
