Abstract
As local energy communities are emerging they redefine the well-known energy system. A large number of decentralized energy resources must be integrated and controlled. Different aims have to be considered within the control, e.g. the formation of local energy communities but also need to comply with the voltage bandwidth. A scalable holistic approach that can be used for a variety of structures, e.g. smart distribution grids or local energy communities, and function, like operation or optimization, is required. In this paper a flexible, adaptable system structure for industrial computers is defined as a basic element for this holistic approach. By using standard technologies from computer science different advantages are realized. An application container allows a flexible use and easy Migration of software components. Through the implementation of software functions such as microservices or webservices and not as a monolithic software a higher degree of flexibility is realized. As an example, the use of this basic elements within a hierarchical ICT System is described. This hierarchical approach is specified and tested under the label “Energy Gateway” within the research project Designetz.
