Advisory Systems as Innovative Solutions
We understand advisory systems as supporting systems in technology, which automate processes, technical procedures through methods of artificial intelligence and data science techniques, or gain new information.
Knowledge-based expert systems or highly automated process control of energy technology or process engineering processes are just two examples of the diverse applications of advisory systems.

Our Current Innovative Projects
ERA-Net AISOP project focuses on AI-assisted grid situational awareness and operational planning. The objective is to create a decision support system for electrical distribution network operators (DSOs) to aid in decarbonization, supported by advanced digital technology.
The system enhances operational planning in distribution networks with high DER share by integrating AI/ML-based solutions, improved situational awareness, and market incentives. It involves data access, distribution network awareness, decision support, dynamic tariffs, and digital platform integration.
Led by HSLU & ETHZ, this project sees collaboration with partners across Switzerland and Germany. It spans from 2022 to 2025 and is financed by SFOE - ERA-Net Joint Call 2020 on digital transformation for green energy transition.Project Link
