Poster (Stand 01.2016)
In the context of the German “energy transition”, the increased penetration of electrical distribution grids with renewable generation plants is significantly changing the load cycles to which cable systems are exposed. The aim of the interdisciplinary research project described here is to define the thermal current carrying capacity of medium and low voltage cable routes more precisely in order to reduce the need for grid expansion in the short to medium term.
