On the 21st of March 2024, the ARCHIMEDES consortium partners gathered for a pivotal workshop focused on Future Electrical Networks (FEN), marking another milestone in their collaborative journey towards technological advancement.

Chaired by RWTH Aachen University and hosted by Vitesco Technologies, the workshop delved into various critical aspects of electrical networks, spearheaded by a World Café session titled “Requirements for (especially bidirectional) OBC & Perspective from Flexible Electrical Networks (FEN)”, under the chairmanship of Prof. Dr. Ir. Rik W. de Doncker. Discussions within this session encompassed a broad spectrum of topics ranging from On-Board Chargers (OBC) to Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) infrastructure, emphasizing safety measures, requirements for V2G-OBC integration, and strategies for lifetime preventative maintenance. Additionally, the dialogue explored the future prospects of hybrid modular batteries, aiming to revolutionize energy storage in automotive, aviation, and industrial sectors.

Another significant World Café session was dedicated to exploring the "Link between ARCHIMEDES and FEN", shedding light on the synergies between the two domains. Participants engaged in discussions pertaining to the FEN Test and Training Center, envisioned as a hub for Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) and Low Voltage Direct Current (LVDC) installation equipment, DC-DC converters, and demonstrations of sector coupling technologies. These deliberations underscored the consortium's commitment to interdisciplinary collaboration and innovation across diverse fields.

This Workshop, which followed the General Assembly of ARCHIMEDES, has been an incredible opportunity for partners to come together and showcase the groundbreaking progress that has been made in advancing automotive, aviation, and industry technologies. With collaboration at the forefront, the consortium is poised to continue pushing the boundaries of innovation and driving positive change in the industry.

The Workshop not only served as a platform for knowledge exchange but also reinforced the collective determination of ARCHIMEDES consortium partners to navigate the evolving landscape of electrical networks with ingenuity and foresight. As they harness the power of collaboration and innovation, the journey towards a sustainable and efficient future for electrical systems takes another significant stride forward.
