The project starts with the module Feed-In Management ("Last- und Einspeisemanagement") based on the German Electricity Feed-In Act. The future demand for electric energy is to be adapted to the supply and availability of renewable energy. Based on specific rules and parameters the Feed-In Management calculates a blueprint for electric switching stations and power plants based on renewable energy. Implementing the calculation input data is needed from electric networks, switching stations, power plants, electric demands and feed-in capabilities.
Furthermore, the project designs an IT-architecture based on the architecture draft of the DSO working group. The IT-architecture is to comply to all functional and non-functional requirements of the Feed-In Management and will support the development of further modules in the near future. The IT-architecture is based on software provided by other open source projects (e.g. application server, integration bus solution and database). The major focus of the IT-architecture is to integrate loosely coupled modules via standardized APIs.
