Energy Electronic Testbed – Smart Local Energy System for Industry

For the demonstration of sustainable energy generation, storage and supply in the rage of small and medium sized industrial plants (decentral intelligent energy system) a decentral energy system at the Fraunhofer IISB was implemented. This available infrastructure could be used as testbed for various energy electronic applications.

Decentral (local) energy system at Fraunhofer IISB


  • Intelligent micro-grid (DC)
  • Electrical storage for micro grids
  • Coupling between hydrogen and electricity
  • Energy grids – grid connectivity based on power electronic systems with high amount of renewable energy
  • Demand side management and secondary energy storage
  • Energy production and secondary energy usage
  • Energy efficiency

Solution – Research and demonstration platform

  • For linkage of power generation, different types of energy storages and distribution and various energy sensors and energy management systems
  • Interconnection of different energy sectors (electricity, heat, cold and hydrogen)
  • Demand site management and peak load shift
  • DC grids including new power electronics and control
  • Novel ICT for energy management purposes (IoT-ComBus)

Potential Users

Sensor provider, sensor system provider, etc.
