At the December meeting of the ForWind Board of Directors, Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Andreas Rauh was accepted as a new member of ForWind. Rauh has been appointed to the professorship “Computer Engineering – Distributed Control in Networked Systems” at the Department of Computer Science at the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg in 2021.
Prior to this, he spent a one-year research stay in Brest at the École nationale supérieure de techniques avancées (ENSTA) Bretagne, one of France’s leading research and educational institutions in the field of engineering.
Rauh studied electrical engineering and information technology at the Technical University of Munich and obtained his doctorate in 2008 at the Institute for Measurement and. Control and Microtechnology at the University of Ulm. He then worked as a senior engineer at the Chair of Mechatronics at the University of Rostock, where he completed his habilitation in the field of measurement and control technology in 2017. From 2008 to 2015, he was also a member of a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a global professional association of engineers, technicians and scientists.
His research focuses on state and parameter estimation for dynamic systems with stochastic and quantity-based uncertainties, their reliable simulation and their robust and optimal control.
With Andreas Rauh, the Oldenburg Department of Computer Science is now involved in ForWind with three departments and complements the broad spectrum of engineering and physical research in the field of wind energy. This means that a total of 30 working groups or institutes from the universities of Oldenburg, Hanover and Bremen are currently members of ForWind.
