Our field of research is orientated to the current challenges and innovation of electrical energy systems :

  • The development and design of large scale transmission systems (e.g. Electricity Highways, Offshore-Grids, etc.)
  • Design and integration of High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) transmission systems   and Flexible AC Transmission Systems (FACTS)
  • System integration of centralised and decentralised renewables, in particular, wind, photovoltaic and solar thermal power plants
  • Innovative storage concepts for volatile energy sources and their integration into the network
  • Intelligent and future-orientated operation and management of transmission grids in a deregulated environment
  • "Smart Energy Systems“: interaction and repercussions of decentralised systems on the transmission.
