Multi-Energy Systems Applied to Smart Factories



The use of renewable energy sources (RES) will be the backbone of future energy systems. The European Union intends to produce up to 55% of the gross energy consumed from RES by 2050. Integrating these intermittent energy sources in the grid represents a huge challenge. At the end of 2015, over 60GW of intermittent (wind and solar) RES were in operation in Germany. Together with biomass, this covers around 30% of the total electricity consumption. Germany invested over € 1 billion in 2015 to integrate RES in the electrical grid, most of the money going toward redispatching. Since system operators are frequently unable to integrate the power generated by RES in the grid, operators of RES power plants have to switch them off. Multi-energy systems (MES) provide a means to integrate volatile RES in the energy system (electricity, gas and heat). MES can convert electricity into other forms of energy such gas and heat and vice versa. The heart of a MES is an energy management system (EMS) that optimally controls the power generated, consumed, stored and converted. An MES designed for smart factories has been implemented and is being refined at the Fraunhofer Institute IFF in Magdeburg. The underlying idea is to maximize the responsiveness of industrial processes to the power generated by RES in order to have a manufacturing process with near-zero carbon emissions.

The aim of the talk is to present and examine the preliminary results of the Fraunhofer Institute IFF Magdeburg’s MES test platform for smart grids.


Dr. Pio Lombardi, Otto von Guericke University, Magdeburg

Pio Lombardi studied mechanical engineering at the Politecnico di Bari, Italy. He graduated in 2006 at the same university with the degree M.Sc. He joined the Chair of Electric Power Networks and Renewable Energy Sources at the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany as a research engineer in 2006. At the same university he received his PhD. In 2011 he joined the Process and Plant Engineering of Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF. His primary field of interest includes modeling, simulation and optimization of multi-energy systems.  Since 2009 is Dr. Lombardi lecturer in “Power System Economics and special topics” at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg (Germany) and in “ Renewable Energy Systems” at Technical University of Wroclaw (Poland) . He is expert member of the Cigrè SC C6 on “Distribution Systems and Dispersed Generators”. He was secretary of the Cigré Working Group C6.15 on “Electric Energy Storage Systems”, currently he is a member of Cigré Working Group C6.22 on “Microgrid Evolution Roadmap” and C6.30 “The Impact of Battery Energy Storage Systems on Distribution Networks”.
