Institute and chair of Power Systems and Power Economics (IAEW) are part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of RWTH Aachen University. Under direction of Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. A. Moser the focus of research, doctrine and industrial projects lies on the mathematical simulation, the technical and economical optimization as well as evaluation of the expansion and operation of power systems. Thereby special emphasis is placed on the markets and the generation as well as on the transmission and distribution of electrical energy. Due to many years of experience as a research institute in the field of market-, power grid- as well as system analysis, IAEW possess detailed knowledge regarding the evaluation of market design, behavior of market actors, grid expansion projects, power flow calculations and forecast errors of renewable energies as well as the objective interpretation of results.
ROLE IN THE PROJECT
Aachen University will be the leader of WP3 - Services and Market Design - INTERRFACE Architecture and will also lead Task 3.2 - Market design, coordination schemes and markets. Moreover, Aachen will contribute to the dissemination, exploitation and communication activities of the project.
