Personal Background

After graduating from high school in 2007, I studied electrical engineering and information technology at RWTH Aachen, where I depressed my interest in electrical power engineering. In my bachelor thesis at the Institute for High Voltage Technology, I dealt with the “scenario analysis of the development of the German high and extra high voltage network under ecological criteria”. After an ERASMUS year at the KTH Stockholm, I graduated in 2013 with a master's degree from RWTH Aachen University. My master's thesis at the Institute of Power Systems and Power Economics was titled with “Investigation of the influence of subordinate loads and feeds on the voltage stability in the transmission system”. Since May 2014, I am a research assistant at the Department E5 of TU Darmstadt.

Field of Research

As mentioned above, my research deals with the static stability of hybrid transmission systems. In the future, to ensure a permissible and stable operating point, increasingly power electronic applications such as high-voltage DC systems (HVDC systems) will be used to master the challenges of the energy transition in the transmission network. Together with the changes in network operation, this requires a closer look at the effects on the overall system. In my research, I concentrate on the static part. This includes both the admissibility of the stationary operating point that develops after the choice of the degrees of freedom as well as the effects on static system stability. The latter one includes not only voltage stability but also rotor angle stability. Compared with the classical approach, which was focused on the use of synchronous machines to provide power, the viewing and evaluation methods have to be adapted to cover those challenges.
