CoNDyNet2- Fokusworkshop

Systemic Sustainability and the Energy Transition

From Data and Policy to Theory – and back

The Paris climate agreement as well as the recent Fridays for Future initiatives reiterate the urgent need to rebuild our energy system and its economic boundary conditions. Understanding and redesigning power transmission and distribution grids as well as the forms and modes of energy feed-in and consumption constitutes a fundamental prerequisit to achieve such a goal. The collaborative research project on the Collective Nonlinear Dynamics of Power (Grid) Networks (CoNDyNet) aims to work out fundamental theoretical and modeling contributions, develop algorithms and software and evaluate boundary conditions in support.

The aim of the workshop is to summarize the state of research between the fields of statistical physics, nonlinear dynamics, graph theory, data-driven modeling and algorithm development, to provide basic overviews and to discuss current and future developments and challenges. The focus is on the possibilities of bridging the disciplinary boundaries and the bridging of theoretical to application-driven basic research on phenomena of the collective dynamics of electrical energy systems.
