The functional renormalization group (fRG) has proven to be a versatile tool to investigate correlated, low-dimensional systems in and out of equilibrium. It was recently extended to study quantum dot setups with explicitly time dependent Hamiltonians [Phys. Rev. B 85, 085113 (2012)]. In systems in which one or more of the dot or lead parameters are varied periodically in time a periodic steady state is reached after all transients have died out. However, due to the limited simulation time the physics of this state can only be described, if we take advantage of the periodicity by combining the Floquet theorem and set up a functional RG with Green functions written in the Floquet basis. For the interacting resonant level model which in equilibrium and if driven by a time constant bias voltage is characterized by power-law scaling of observables in the relevant energy scales (e.g. temperature T or bias voltage Vb, respectively) with interaction dependent exponents this allows to investigate if and how the driving frequency Ω acts as a cutoff of the underlying renormalization group flow. The competition of this scale with the emergent low-energy scale TK (Kondo scale) is investigated. I discuss how this competition is reflected in the observables characterizing the stationary transport through the dot.
