“Der Vattenfall Frequenz Regler” (frequency regulator) is a simulation game that lets the visitor experience what is it like to regulate electric power in public power networks. It is part of an installation at Vattenfall’s Germans branch offices in Berlin and Hamburg
Because electric power can’t be stored easily, but the need changes over time, some regulation needs to take place between power generation in windmill-powered plants, coal-burning and nuclear power plants and hydroelectric power plants on one hand and the consumption of power on the other hand.
We used a concept by Interbrand Zintzmeyer&Lux to design the simulation in an fun and interactive way. The system automatically changes certain parameters, and the visitor must use two handwheels to react and keep the lightbulbs burning and the oven warm. Warnings appear when there is not enough energy available, and wind strength changes randomly, just as in real life.
“World of Vattenfall” is an information terminal that shows the Vattenfall group’s activities in several places in Germany and Sweden showing points of interest like sports events and windmill-powered plants. Installed at branch offices in Berlin and Hamburg.
