Machine-Learning for Distribution Grids
Full grid transparency at the lowest cost
FIELD TESTS & CASE STUDIES
Currently we validate and optimize our system in several international field tests
PROJECTS & RESEARCH
We are part of 3 EU Horizon 2020 Projects which we would like to introduce here:
OUR PROJECT PARTNERS
We cooperate with strong partners from research and industry, which share our vision of a cost-efficient and reliable operation of medium and low voltage distribution networks.

CEO and founder Artur Löwen has more than 15 years of experience in software development, e.g. for database-based CAD applications (such as Helios3D) and 3D visualization, of which he has worked more than 7 years in the energy sector.
The idea for Gridhound originated during his work at the Institute for Automation of Complex Power Systems at the E.ON Energy Research Center of RWTH Aachen University, when a European distribution network operator postulated the need for affordable capacity management for medium- and low-voltage grid monitoring. This input, coupled with the resulting implications for the future viability of the networks, led to the idea of transferring machine learning methods into network operation, thereby addressing the challenge of distribution system operators with an absolutely innovative approach.
Two years later, after intensive research, planning and a proof of concept in the form of a dissertation, Gridhound was launched.
Professor Antonello Monti is the head of Institute for Automation of Complex Power Systems of the E.ON Energy Research Center at RWTH Aachen University.
For Gridhound he acts as an idea provider, visionary and consultant/adviser and shares a deep connection with Gridhound.
Nicole Gerlach acquired extensive experience along with international expertise in the setup, marketing and successful sale of complex products and services in her previous employments in private companies and public services. Her skills in Business Development, Marketing and Sales form a valuable link between man and technology.
Behzad Zargar focuses on monitoring techniques for distribution networks, integration of RES as well as the control of energy systems. He started his work on his dissertation at RWTH Aachen University in 2017.
Ricardo Hernandez Montoya is a Software Engineer with experience in internet technologies, mobile and cloud applications as well as DevOps methods. He develops the backend in close cooperation with our Energy Systems Engineers.
Helmut Vor has more than 20 years of work experience in the field of quality management, processing and postprocessing of simulation data. Furthermore, he provides valuable input as a project expert and manager. As Chief Information Security Officer at Gridhound he focuses on IT-Security.
Subhodeep Chakraborty is doing his M.Sc. in Electrical Power Engineering at RWTH-Aachen. He works on the algorithm development and modeling of the machine learning process. At the interface to software development, he prepares the algorithms for integration.
