Student Assistant Jobs


Student Assistant (f/m/non-binary)

Our Profile

Three chairs cooperate in the Institute for High Voltage Equipment and Grids, Digitalization and Energy Economics (IAEW): The Chair for High Voltage Equipment and Technology (EAH), The Chair for Active Energy Distribution Grids (AEV) and the Chair for Transmission Grids and Energy Economics (UEW). The IAEW deals with the challenges of the energy transition from materials to components to the entire energy system. The following topics are currently in the focus of the respective chair:

Chair for High Voltage Equipment and Technology:

• Development and investigation of novel insulation materials in high voltage laboratories
• Design and analysis of innovative, environmentally friendly components for medium and high voltage grids of today and tomorrow
• Protection and control of future multi-terminal HVDC grids
