Institute of Power Systems and Power Economics (IAEW) - Prof. Dr.-Ing. Albert Moser

Key aspects in research and teaching of IAEW are the mathematical simulation, optimization and evaluation of technical and economic development and behavior of the electrical power system. In particular electric power generation, transmission and distribution are key components of our work, but we also focus on profit maximization, quality of supply and environmental sustainability. The Institute is a competent partner with expertise and many years of experience in the areas of:

  • Evaluation of network expansion projects in distribution and transmission grids with consideration of flexibilities (e.g. curtailment of renewables)
  • Simulation of network operation and optimisation of power flow controlling devices and flexibility in distribution and transmission grids
  • Determination of impact of new regulatory instruments on distribution grid planning
  • Fundamental simulation of future market prices (e.g. for evaluating efficiency of power plants/energy storages)
  • Evaluation of system adequacy for future scenarios
  • Reliability calculations of electric supply systems
  • Feasibility studies for overhead lines in grid planning with regards to electromagnetic interference

Our models are constantly improved, extended and adapted to cope with actual research projects or on customer requests. If we have aroused your interest, please contact the chief engineers of the Institute ().
