Welcome to the homepage of the Control Systems and Network Control Technology Group (RuN) at Brandenburg University of Technology Cottbus-Senftenberg.

The two main research areas of our group are

  • the development of advanced methods in systems, control and network control technology;
  • the provision of intelligent algorithms for the analysis, supervision and control of energy networks with large shares of renewable generation units.

These aims naturally lead to an interplay between application-oriented and fundamental research projects.

Our teaching comprises introductory as well as advanced courses in systems and control engineering within the Faculty 3 Mechanical Engineering, Electrical and Energy Systems. We also participate in the international study program Power Engineering. In addition, we offer several advanced courses in modeling, network control technology and automation of modern energy systems as well as Bachelor and Master thesis projects.

We work in close collaboration with the Business Area Control, Automation & Operation Management of the Fraunhofer Research Institution for Energy Infrastructures and Geothermal Systems (IEG).
