Head of Group Smart Grid Operation and Planning, Division Power Solutions

Short biography

Dr-Ing Berhard Wille-Haussmann, born in 1977, studied electronic engineering at the University of Stuttgart. In his dipolma thesis (finished 2005) he worked on the characterisation of thin film photovoltaics. Since 2005 he works at Fraunhofer ISE in the field of managing distribution grids with a high penetration of renewable and distributed generators. His main task is the optimal operation of heat systems with cogeneration and thermal storage devices. In June 2011 he finished his PhD with the topic "Usage of the symbolic model reduction for analysing control strategies in Smart Grids". Since 2010 he is head of the group Energy Management and Grids.

His main working field is the integration of distributed generators and loads into grids. The span reaches from grid planning, control and operation management. For scheduling predictive optimization algorithms are applied to use thermal and electric storage capacities for local and grid storage.
