Article on the Project »EMILIE«

An article about our project »EMILIE« was published in the journal Computer-Automation. In this project, we are working together with our partners on edge gateways for decentralised data acquisition and processing.


Dortmund, Fair / 25.09. – 29.09.2023

Digital Week Dortmund 2023

The Digital Week Dortmund makes it possible for companies to gather impulses and contacts in the digital economy and to present their innovations to visitors. Our employees of the department »System Analysis, Prognosis and Control« will be on site and participate in a panel discussion on the topic »Demonstrator Energy Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance«.

EMILIE Makes Cement Mills More Energy Efficient

The future of industrial data processing is being taken over by so-called edge devices, which process data already in the control cabinet. In the project EMILIE, we are working with partners to improve these technologies. Among other things, the researchers are focusing on the energy efficiency of large mills.


Steinfurt, Conference / 23.08.2023

Efficiency Forum Economy

This year, the ninth edition of the »Efficiency Forum Economy« will take place. The focus this time is on the topic of »Sustainable Production and Economy«. Researchers from our department »Systems Analysis, Prognosis and Control« will be on site to present our work on the topic.


Fair / 07.11. – 08.11.2023


At IN.STAND, industrial services of specialized service companies as well as internal maintenance and repair organizations are mapped.

Our colleague Dr. Benjamin Adrian, deputy head of the department »System Analysis, Prognosis and Control« and his team, consisting of Julia Burr, Marvin Jung and Dr. Alex Sarishvili, represent our institute on site at their own booth.

Here we will inform you about the latest research topics, upcoming events and other news of the department.

Ongoing Ph.D.

  • Model predictive control of differential-algebraic systems with application to electrical networks (Dimitri Morgenstern)

Recently Completed Ph.D.

  • Nonlinear switched DAEs: Analysis, control theory and application to energy networks (Ferdinand Küsters)
  • DAE-Modellierung und mathematische Stabilitätsanalyse von Energieversorgungsnetzen (Tjorben Groß)
  • Stability Preservation for Parametric Model Order Reduction by Matrix Interpolation (Andreas Barthlen)
  • Structure-Exploiting Coupled Symbolic-Numerical Model Reduction for Electrical Networks (Oliver Schmidt)

Scientific Assistants/Interns

We are always looking for student assistants and interns with good programming skills, especially in C/C++, Python, or Matlab. We offer a variety of practical activities in our projects. In addition, other large software packages (for example, dSpace, Labview) are often used, where the possibility exists. The remuneration is to be agreed upon.



The seminar »KL-Regelungstechnik« (Kaiserslautern – Control Theory and Control Engineering) is organized by our department as well as several research groups  of the TU Kaiserslautern:

  • Technomathematics (Dep. of Mathematics)
  • Mechatronics in Mechenical and Automotive Engineering (Dep. of Mechanical and Process Engineering)
  • Automation Control (Dep. of Electrical and Computer Engineering)
  • Electromobility (Dep. of Electrical and Computer Engineering)

The seminar takes place at the ITWM every 1st Tuesday of a month (besides holidays and summer break). Aims are broadening of experiences and exchange of scientific views – also beyond the organizing groups.

Typical subjects of talks are:

  • ongoing or recently finished graduations and doctoral theses
  • current research and projects

Webinar-Series: Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance

In our webinar series »Condition Monitoring and Predictive Maintenance« we inform you about current possibilities of intelligent digitalization in the operation and maintenance of plants.

The event usually takes place at regular intervals (apart from holiday shifts and summer break) (planned monthly). The goals are to broaden horizons and exchange ideas on smart digitization, also across the participating groups.
