Our power grid is being loaded more and more non-linearlyby the increasing use of power electronics, which leads to
- distortion of the waveform (harmonics),
- causes visible fluctuations in the lighting (flicker),
- leads to overvoltages and undervoltage above the 10% tolerance limit and sometimes
- caused total failure of the supply voltage.
In this context, the partners in the netAKTOR network are particularly dedicated to the topic of “network-friendly consumers”. Based on the identified project ideas, demonstrators for grid-friendly user solutions will be created in the course of the research and development projects, which will later contribute to stabilizing the power grids after further development and market maturity.
