Industrial Partners

Numerous companies are currently involved in research projects of FEN Research Campus in the areas low voltage, medium voltage and high voltage.

As an innovative manufacturer for low voltage switchgear systems, the ESA Elektroschaltanlagen Grimma GmbH searches for new product applications within energy distribution using direct current technology. For us, the focus is on general issues regarding serial production of these systems on the basis of grid topologies, selectivity behavior, short-circuit resistance and new protection concepts.
As a result of our cooperation within FEN Research Campus, we hope for answers or fundamentals regarding these topics in order to develop new products for this possible market in the future.
According to our assessment, DC technology in principle has a huge potential that can also affect the electrical installations in buildings. This impact is already visible today in different energy applications like photovoltaic and energy storage systems. Not only this, the share of direct current is also gradually increasing in lighting applications (e.g. LED). We at Hager are interested in developing our products and solutions to cope such changes in the electrical grid as well as the electrical installations inside the buildings.
With the academic and industrial partners at FEN Research Campus, we have access to a very large and thematically broad community of partners, with whom we can work together on different topics in the field of direct current technology.
Dr. Torsten Hager, Hager Electro GmbH & Co. KG
In the beginning of the 19th century, electricity was supplied through DC grids. For the transmission of electric energy over longer distances, AC-grids had been introduced. The AC-power had been required to transform voltages to different levels, which was done by transformers. Modern power electronics enables the transformation of voltages by DC-DC converters. This way the efficiency of grids can improve and the distribution of electric power will be simplified.
We would like to contribute to the success of DC grids by optimizing power devices. In cooperation with FEN Research Campus we intend to help removing the technical barriers for the application of DC technology.
Dr. Reinhold Bayerer, Infineon Technologies AG
FEN Research Campus provides us with the opportunity to research the potential of flexible and intelligent grids on a broad basis in collaboration with partners from science and industry. We are convinced that the joint research will offer answers and solutions with which we will realize the technological challenges of the future energy system.
