Smart Grid - network planning with brains
If you are an electricity grid operator, we have the right tools for your planning and design of efficient and affordable electricity grids. And that in the age of e-mobility and renewable energies. With the IAV Optera software, our customers can plan efficient and cost-optimised medium-voltage grids – fully automated and according to their wishes – and optimise existing infrastructures. Operators simply enter the relevant planning criteria – our software does the rest, saving them time and money.
The Flying Eye - Network inspection by drone
For grid operators, our smart drone “CarryAir” offers a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to helicopter flights to control and survey power lines. The autonomous flying object can also be used in industry and agriculture. An innovative hydrogen fuel cell system enables significantly higher ranges than battery operation, while AI methods are used to evaluate the collected data.
Clever Charging by IAV - we make electricity mobile!
As a fleet manager, for example in logistics or in the healthcare sector, you will find customised charging solutions with us. At least 15 million e-cars are expected to be on the road in Germany by 2030 – this means a massive expansion of the charging infrastructure at all levels. Intelligent communication that connects all e-mobility partners in the system enables successful grid integration of the vehicles. Whether it’s the use of batteries as intermediate storage, smart on-site charging management or the identification of attractive charging locations – IAV continues to drive e-mobility forward.
Energy transition for districts
If you are an energy supplier or a housing construction company, then you will benefit from our digital tools and automation solutions. IAV’s neighbourhood energy management system (QEMS) allows you to precisely determine your energy requirements, tap into savings potential and operate more efficiently. In addition, intelligent control of large consumers ensures effective load management in the power grid. We are also happy to fully automate your energy flows, right up to smart, holistic energy management – based on smart forecasts regarding production and consumption.
Energy suppliers and gas grid operators are increasingly converting their business model to hydrogen. This requires significant investments and extensive planning. IAV offers preliminary and feasibility studies, design and approval planning as well as complete execution and commissioning. With our many years of development experience in the hydrogen sector and powerful optimisation tools, we pave the way for a plant that meets requirements and is cost-effective.
Smart Corona Tracking
For cities, municipalities and larger industrial plants, we offer an intelligent tool for local pandemic control: IAV’s Ki-supported Corona Early Detection System determines the optimal position of measuring points in your wastewater system by fusing measured value analyses and microgeographical evaluations. Wastewater samples are taken there and analysed for Corona RNA. The virus is detected at an early stage and valuable time is gained to take action against the infection. On the recommendation of the EU, the German government is currently planning to monitor the spread of corona viruses at pilot sites using wastewater data – IAV is involved in the process through the application of a municipality.
