Pervasively Energy-Efficient ICT Production
Goal of the DESI project is to optimize the energy consumption of ICT production, considering both the domains of "ICT" and "Energy" in a unifying way. The operation of ICT components over the whole supply chain, up to customer networks, has to be taken into account and controlled with respect to varying traffic. This leads to new requirements for the power supply of widespread telecommunication networks.
Taking a unifying view on energy and ICT network makes it necessary to consider complex relationships between various restrictions on different systems. We use state-of-the-art methods of mathematical optimization to deal with this challenge. This includes a model-based description of network topologies and structures, the study of the net-wide influences of components under varying load, as well as the design and implementation of algorithms for the energy-efficient control of ICT production.
