Nowadays, one cannot think of a world without energy. The energy usage, dependability on energy supplies and climate changes became important aspects in our society. Now and in the near future, the electricity consumption will increase even more. This increase is caused by a shift towards more electricity-supplied devices, for example electrical cars. On the other hand, we want to reduce the CO2 emission. This requires to improve/introduce generation based on renewable sources. One can think of sun, wind or water energy. This energy can be produced locally at the end-users, but these ways of generating energy are uncontrollable and very fluctuating. The reason for this is, that they are dependable on the amount of wind or sunshine available. Another important aspect is that the current distributed generation infrastructure is not build for a two-way (both demand and supply from households) energy system. Thus the infrastructure requires new control mechanisms to make this possible. Many different approaches to control this have been proposed, but unfortunately there is not yet a benchmark to quantitatively compare these methods. This bachelor thesis is the first step to such a benchmark. The purpose of this project is to define key performance indicators, which can mark how well each control system has achieved a given objective. After this a small-scale model is designed. In this model the different goals can be tested based on the defined Key Performance Indicators.
