Digitisation makes power supply vulnerable to software errors

Friday 16 March 2018 | 18:06 CET | News
The digitisation of the power supply is advancing quickly. This is necessary for the use of more sustainable energy sources such as solar panels and windmills, and also for the large-scale application of heat pumps and for the temporary storage of electricity in, for example, car batteries. Due to the increasing complexity of the digital control of the power supply, and also because more and more self-learning and autonomously decisive devices are connected to the grid, new vulnerabilities will arise in the electricity system. The chance of large-scale power outages will therefore increase.
