Scientific Council and University Cooperations
We have established a scientific council for the purpose of regular exchanges between science and practice. The volunteer committee currently consists of 16 professors from the fields of energy technology, economy, law and politics. The council meets once or twice a year to discuss and assess current topics and future issues relevant to 50Hertz. An important aspect of its work is the initiation and execution of joint research and development projects and studies, as well as the supervision of dissertations, bachelorʼs and masterʼs theses
Beyond this, we have worked with a number of universities in our control area for many years. Our scientific partners include Dresden Technical University, Ilmenau Technical University, Otto-von-Guericke-University in Magdeburg, and Friedrich-Schiller University in Jena, Brandenburg Tech-nical University in Cottbus, and Berlin University of Applied Sciences.
The topics of our joint research deal with, for instance, the voltage quality of extra-high-voltage grids, the operation of three-phase current and direct current on one pylon, the determination of critical conditions in the 50Hertz grid, or the implications of the energy transition for the econ-omy, politics and society. In addition, we are active at the universities and research institutions by regularly giving practice-oriented lectures, talks and workshops..
