The Smart Grid Training Kit is designed to understand the interactions between green energy sources, energy stores and consumers in the smart grid. Through setting up smart grids on a laboratory scale and calculating and monitoring them, students can learn very demonstratively about the electro-technical problems of mains operations. Pre-set allow students to increasingly build their skills in their own experiments. Students first observe the problem in the trial of designing methods to improve grid reliability on their own. At the end they would check them in realistic tests. Also complicated topics such as demand-side control or conductor rope tracking may be discussed in experiments. The Training kit allows the calculation and monitoring of energy fluxes in the experiments.
