Dipl.-Ing. Wolfgang Biener

Researcher, Energy Management and Networks, Department Intersectoral Energy Systems and Grid Integration

Research focus

  • Economical distribution grid operation control
  • Probabilistic load-flow
  • Optimal grid planning and reinforcement
  • Distribution grid state estimation
  • Transmission grid analysis

Key qualifications

Wolfgang Biener is working since 2012 at Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems. His current research topics are operation control of electrical grids and optimal grid planning. Operation control is divided into two main fields communication based optimal control and robust decentralized control without communication. Grid planning is done applying optimization algorithms on the use case.
