Otto von Guericke University of Magdeburg (D)
Chair of Electrical Power Networks & Renewable Energy Sources
The Chair of Electrical Power Networks & Renewable Energy Sources "LENA" at the Otto-von-Guericke University is part of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology with 550 students. LENA offers advanced lectures covering a wide area of topics, e.g. Renewable Energy Sources, Photovoltaic Power Systems, Wind Energy Systems, Fundamentals of Power Systems, Electric Power Network and Apparatus, Modelling & Simulation of Power Systems and Social Skills for Dissemination of Power Systems, LENA was and is a consortium partner in international and national projects regarding the network integration of renewable sources. The team of LENA will bring into the project Web2Energy its strong experience in data management and data models for communication.
Zbigniew Antoni Styczynski (1949) received his PhD in Electrical Engineering in 1977 and finished his professorial dissertation at the Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland) in 1985. 1992 he became professor at the Industrial Institute for Electricity Network Automation in Wroclaw. In this time he extended his scope of teaching to the University of Stuttgart, In 1999 he became professor in the University of Magdeburg and established its chair LENA, Furthermore he is engaged in a large number of activities in the society and the industry concerning the integration of renewable energy sources and critical infrastructures. He is author of more than 130 papers in international journals and international scientific conferences.
Przemyslaw Komarnicki (1980) earned a dual Master's of Science from Wroclaw University of Technology in Poland and Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg in Germany in 2004. Since 2004, he has been a research manager and, since 2008, the Electric Power Systems Group Manager in the Process and Plant Engineering Business Unit of the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation in Magdeburg, Germany. Parallel to his work, he earned his doctorate from the Department of Electric Power Networks and Renewable Energy Sources at Otto-von-Guericke University in 2008 and is an assistant lecturer at the university since then. His special fields of interest include synchronized measurements, testing methods and PMU applications for power systems. He is a member of the Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technologies (VDE), the International Institute for Critical Infrastructures (CRIS) and LPQIVES Certification Board.
André Naumann (1983) graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering from Wilhelmshaven University of Applied Sciences in Germany in 2007 and earned a Master's of Science from Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg in Germany in 2009. That same year, he joined the Department of Electric Power Networks and Renewable Energy Sources in university's School of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. His special fields of interests include the testing of electric measurement devices in power systems and digital communication of monitoring and control devices used in power systems.
