Bran­den­bur­gi­sche Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät Cott­bus-Senf­ten­berg - Fac­ulty of Mech­an­ical Engin­eer­ing, Elec­trical and Energy Sys­tems

Im Her­zen der Lau­sitz ver­bin­det die BTU her­aus­ra­gende inter­na­tio­nale For­schung mit zukunfts­ori­en­tier­ter Lehre. Sie leis­tet mit Wis­sens-, Tech­no­lo­gie­trans­fer und Wei­ter­bil­dung einen wich­ti­gen Bei­trag für Gesell­schaft, Kul­tur und Wirt­schaft. Als Tech­ni­sche Uni­ver­si­tät bie­tet die BTU ein bun­des­weit ein­zig­ar­ti­ges Lehr­kon­zept: Bei uns kön­nen Stu­di­en­gänge uni­ver­si­tär, fach­hoch­schu­lisch und dual stu­diert wer­den.

Pro­fessor (W3) Decent­ral­ized Energy Sys­tems and Elec­trical Net­works

Working field:

The announced pos­i­tion fol­lows the suc­ces­sion of the pro­fess­or­ship „Energy Dis­tri­bu­tion and High Voltage Engin­eer­ing“ and „Decent­ral­ized Energy Sys­tems“ of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Har­ald Schwarz. These chairs will be restruc­tured as “Decent­ral­ized Energy Sys­tems and Elec­trical Net­works” and in a second announce­ment, „High Voltage Engin­eer­ing and Elec­trical Sys­tems“.
This chair has an import­ant role in the realign­ment of the energy region Lusa­tia. In rela­tion with this realign­ment sev­eral major pro­jects are planned at the BTU within the frame of an “Energy Innov­a­tion Cen­ter”, e. g. in the area of “Scale-up Lab for Smart Grids”. The new pro­fess­or­ship is sup­posed to par­ti­cip­ate act­ively in these pro­jects and to cooper­ate with the new energy related insti­tutes of DLR and Fraunhofer Gesell­schaft in Cottbus. It is expec­ted that the research of the chair is dir­ec­ted towards the restruc­tur­ing of the pro­duc­tion of elec­trical energy from fossil to renew­able sources and era­di­ate espe­cially into the area Lusa­tia.

We are look­ing for a per­son­al­ity who is able to com­pre­hens­ively rep­res­ent this field in research and teach­ing. In the con­text of the main research topic "energy trans­ition and decar­bon­isa­tion" at the BTU, the fol­low­ing main research top­ics are to be worked on:
  • Integ­ra­tion of renew­able decent­ral­ized gen­er­a­tion (espe­cially wind energy and PV) into the national / European elec­trical power grids from the per­spect­ive of grid sta­bil­ity in con­nec­tion with static and dynamic fre­quency and voltage con­trol,
  • Power grid sta­bil­ity pre­vent­ing oper­a­tion and man­age­ment of stor­age sys­tems, sec­tor coup­ling sys­tems and con­trol­lable loads (also elec­tro mobil­ity),
  • Mod­el­ling and sim­u­la­tion of smart grids in the dis­tri­bu­tion grid level as well as their man­age­ment strategies to sup­port the over­laid power grid oper­a­tion,
  • Grid res­tor­a­tion con­cepts based on an increas­ing num­ber of decent­ral­ized energy sys­tems, stor­age facil­it­ies and sec­tor coup­ling sys­tems and a sim­ul­tan­eous decline in con­ven­tional power gen­er­a­tion,
  • Mod­el­ling of elec­trical grids of all voltage levels for sta­tion­ary, quasi-dynamic and dynamic grid cal­cu­la­tions as well as their pro­tec­tion design and oper­a­tion man­age­ment optim­iz­a­tion.

The pro­fess­or­ship is respons­ible for the sci­entific and admin­is­trat­ive man­age­ment of sev­eral large-scale labor­at­or­ies, such as the Power Sys­tem Sim­u­lator in LG 3E and a Micro Grid in the power range of 50...200 kW.

Other duties res­ult from the require­ments set by § 42 Branden­bur­gisches Hoch­schul­ge­setz (Higher Edu­ca­tion Act of the State of Branden­burg - BbgHG) in con­junc­tion with § 3 BbgHG.


The can­did­ate is expec­ted to have rel­ev­ant exper­i­ence in research in sev­eral of the above­men­tioned areas and to be will­ing to par­ti­cip­ate in joint research pro­jects with other depart­ments of the fac­ulty and the uni­versity and to con­tinue ongo­ing research activ­it­ies of the chair.

In teach­ing, par­ti­cip­a­tion in Ger­man and Eng­lish is expec­ted in the courses of study in Energy Tech­no­logy and Energy Eco­nom­ics, Power Engin­eer­ing, Elec­trical Engin­eer­ing and Indus­trial Engin­eer­ing as well as other engin­eer­ing courses of study. Trans­mis­sion- and Dis­tri­bu­tion Grids of elec­trical Energy, Renew­able Sources to pro­duce Elec­trical Energy and the integ­ra­tion of Renew­able Sources in Elec­trical Grids are assigned to this chair. Fur­ther devel­op­ments of the teach­ing offers are expec­ted.

Please refer to §§ 41 para­graph 1 no. 1 - 4a and 43 BbgHG for Pre­requis­ites and con­di­tions of employ­ment.
