The project focuses on the possibilities of load management and the provision of system services by rotting aeration fans in municipal biowaste treatment plants to balance fluctuating renewable energies. The focus is on the optimization of the control of the rotting aeration as well as its integration into the electricity market.
The aim of the project is to make statements to which extent the power requirement of rotting aeration fans of biowaste treatment plants can follow the power supply, e.g. during high (fluctuating) feed-in power from wind and photovoltaic plants. Furthermore, it will be verified whether alternative or additional system services can be provided by these aggregates to stabilize the power grid (focus on control power). The options mentioned above should be examined with regard to technical, economic and ecological aspects and with regard to their practicability.
