DC INDUSTRY 2
In terms of content, the project builds on the results of DC INDUSTRIE in which an extensive system concept has already been developed. It is the aim of DC INDUSTRY 2 to expand the system concept for larger systems. While the first part of the project focused on the development, adaptation and testing of power electronics devices for the supply and protection of DC networks in production cells as well as methods for their robust operational management, in the second phase the DC network should become an intelligent DC - Network for a production hall or a large-scale process plant can be expanded.
About the research project DC-INDUSTRY 2
DC-INDUSTRY 2 is funded as part of the 7th energy research program under grant numbers 03EI6002A-Q. With a project volume of around EUR 13 million (total funding EUR 7.4 million), DC INDUSTRY 2 is one of the largest collaborative research projects in Germany. The 13 industrial alliance partners BLOCK, BMW, Daimler, Eaton, ETA, HOMAG, KEB Automation, LAPP, Lenze, LTI Motion, Phoenix Contact, SMA Solar Technology, Weidmüller together with the 5 universities OWL University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Technical University Brunswick, Fraunhofer IPA, Fraunhofer IISB, University of Stuttgart and the 22 associated partners ABB, AMK, Audi, Bauer Gear Motor, Bender, Danfoss, Dehn, ESR Pollmeier, Gerotor, Harting, JEAN MÜLLER, KUKA Germany, KUKA Systems, LEONI Kabel, LEONI Special Cables, Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen, Paul Vahle, Puls, Rittal, SEW-PowerSystems, Siemens and Wöhner are researching the industrial DC network of the future.
