The DeaSYS Project is a cooperation between the "EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG" and DAI-Labor of Technische Universität Berlin.

Goal

The desired result of this project is a showcase which not only displays the results but enables people to experience the project and its results.

The showcase integrates external mobile energy storages (e.g. the large battery of a Plug-In hybrid vehicle) into the living environment to supply electrical energy for some time.

Implementation

For the integration of the external energy storage there is a loading/docking station needed, which is located at the parking lot close to the apartment where the showcase is implemented. A Plug-In hybrid car or an electrically powered car connects to this docking station and will be immediately integrated into the Energy Management System (EMS) of the "Ambient Assisted Living Showroom", which is located in the 15th floor of the Telefunken building in Berlin.

Now, stored energy from the battery, which was generated by a regenerative breaking system or is left after a drive, can supply electrical consumers in the showroom. The docking station at the parking lot is a mediator between the car and the EMS, to optimize the usage of the coupled electrical capacity.

The energy management system of DAI-Labor is based on a distributed multi agent system (MAS), which controls and regulates the energy consumption in the showroom in an intelligent way. If the system recognizes a planned or unplanned peak load and a car is connected to the docking station, the additional energy source can be used to reduce the load of the public electrical network and to flatten the personal electricity consumption curve.

The external energy storage can also be used to store energy when the tariff is cheap or when there is an overproduction of energy by the energy provider or at a local regenerative power plant.
