The 5G Application Center of Fraunhofer IOSB-INA in Lemgo supports companies and municipalities along the enablement chain of informing-demonstrating-qualifying-conceiving-implementing on the way to 5G-based products, services and business models for industry and municipalities. Based on practical 5G use cases in our IoT real labs SmartFactoryOWL and Lemgo Digital, we offer a variety of support formats.
(Lemgo / Aurich) One of Germany's largest manufacturers of wind turbines, ENERCON, has joined forces with Fraunhofer IOSB-INA in Lemgo to develop a groundbreaking innovation for wind turbine (WTG) control: The new ultra-high-speed communication system has now been successfully implemented and tested at the end of 2022 at the Staphorst wind farm in the Netherlands in a model type E-138 EP3 wind turbine with a rotor diameter of 138 meters and a rated power of 4.26 MW. The new technology improves the control of so-called feed-in converters. With the increasing number of regenerative energy sources, powerful feed-in converters play a central role. Thus, the new Fraunhofer technology is an important building block for a robust energy grid of the future. The system makes it possible to control the active and reactive power feed-in of wind turbines into the energy grid in real time and more precisely than ever before, enabling potential for greater efficiency.more info
