Brief Biography

I studied electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen University and at the UPM in Madrid. There I mainly dealt with generation, transport and storage of electrical energy from renewable sources. Working as a student research assistant at Prof. De Doncker's and Prof. Sauer's institute I got familiar with power electronics, applied control engineering and electrochemical storage systems. Supervised by Prof. Moser I turned my attention to the destabilising effect of photovoltaic generators in weak electrical grids in my final thesis. From 2010 to 2015 I engaged in control issues in low inertia microgrids as development engineer at Younicos AG, Berlin. Since December 2012 I am doctoral candidate at the Control Systems Group at TU Berlin, partly supported by the Reiner Lemoine Foundation. From September to December 2014 I have been a visiting student at Prof. Bemporad's DYSCO research unit at IMT Lucca.

Research

My research focuses on control concepts for microgrids. Here I am especially interested in

  • control schemes for electric grids with high renewable share,
  • model predictive control and time-series based forecasting and
  • energy management of microgrids.
