Cityvolt – Identification of Locations for Mobile Fast Chargers of Uniper

7. April 2020 - 13:12

A rapid improvement of the existing charging infrastructure is necessary for the shift towards electromobility. Unfortunately, in particular, fast-charging stations have not been widely used in Germany until now. The energy infrastructure is not designed to provide the required amount of electricity in many places. This is where "E-Mobility Solutions by Uniper" comes into play: The system is based on mobile fast chargers that can be set up flexibly, also in inner-city areas if required. They present a valuable contribution to the sustainable improvement of the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.

But where are the ideal locations for mobile fast chargers? This complex question was addressed by the team of 10 bachelor students in the project seminar "Cityvolt" in the winter semester 19/20, taking into account customer needs as well as regulatory and technical requirements. To identify the locations, the students developed an algorithm for the automated identification and evaluation of potential locations and implemented it in a web application in the Microsoft Azure Cloud.

During their final presentation at Uniper's headquarters in Düsseldorf, the students demonstrated their solution in which potential locations for a selectable city can be evaluated and graphically displayed. Map data from publicly available databases, as well as knowledge and experience of experts from the project partners, were used for this purpose.

The project team of Uniper was impressed by the solution and the presentation skills of the students. They are already working on improving the prototypical software and integrating it into their own software platform for the management of the mobile fast chargers. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Uniper: for their joint work on this innovative and future-oriented topic and for the excellent support of the students. We wish much success for "E-Mobility Solutions by Uniper"!

Corona-Virus - Semester Plans and Communication Channels

18. März 2020 - 8:49

Dear students,

 you have all been contacted by the rectorate of the university that the semester start has been postponed until April 20th. Please continue to pay close attention to the announcements made by the rectorate: https://www.uni-muenster.de/de/en/coronavirus-information.html

The IS department is in close cooperation with the Dean’s office and the rectorate. Along with our colleagues we are working on contingency plans to ensure the continuance of your studies under these difficult circumstances. We are confident that together with your cooperation we will meet the challenges in terms of teaching as well as examination. We are trusting on your cooperation and acceptance that this semester will be anything but “business as usual”.

While these contingency plans for the upcoming semester are maturing, we would like establish effective communication channels with you:

1.       Please pay attention to your university email account. The rectorate sends around updates via this channel alongside the official website: https://www.uni-muenster.de/de/en/coronavirus-information.html

2.       Make sure that you and your fellow IS-students are enrolled to the study coordinator Learnweb course: https://www.uni-muenster.de/LearnWeb/learnweb2/course/view.php?id=27915. For us it is the easiest way to keep all IS-students posted.

3.       In a few days, all courses, seminars and other modules offered by our department will have their Learnweb-courses online. Please enroll or register to those courses that you intend to take in the summer semester. Again, it allows us to quickly address particular groups of students.

In line with the rectorate’s strategy, we try to limit the need for physical contact between employee’s and students of the department. As a result, all rooms, normally available to students have been closed. You may contact the Chairs, your supervisors by email and phone. They are happy to provide help and support in a virtual setting.

Best Regards and stay healthy!
