Associate Professorship Power Transmission Systems

Prof. R. Witzmann

Welcome to the website of the Chair for High Voltage Engineering and Switchgear Technology (HSA) and the Professorship for Power Transmission Systems (EEN).

In the area of high voltage technology, current research projects are focused on the performance of electrical insulation systems and insulating materials for applications in high voltage devices and gas insulated installations. Further, the effects of high DC voltages and the current capacities of particular electrical connections are analysed. At the Professorship for Power Transmission Systems, the influence of future trends, such as the integration of renewable energy sources and utilization of storage technology, on the stationary and dynamic behaviour of electrical transmission and distribution systems is investigated.

In the context of the European Energiewende, these research topics are of relevance to both the academic/industrial engineering community and to the wider society. For further information on individual research activities, please follow the relevant project links.
