ICT for Smart Grids


Lecturer: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ralf Lehnert

You can find further material on OPAL.


The course ICT for Smart Grids is offered for students in the module “Kommunikationstechnik” from the Renewable Energy Systems studies. It is linked to the course “Kommunikationsnetze” in this module as well.
The course focuses on communication technologies specific to IoT scenarios (ZigBee, LoRa), Application Layer IoT protocols (MQTT, COAP), data management systems and an introduction to datatbase design, data analysis (traditional and machine learning based), and security.
From this course, students will learn how to approach the design of a distributed and remotely controlled system, from the selection of the communication technology, to the application data management and privacy.

Language of Lecture: German / English
This course is offered only in Summer Semester.
