Presentation of the Prof Dr Werner Petersen Prizes for Technology 2023

Two award winners from the School of EIM

The expert committee, in which the North German universities and the board of the Professor Dr Werner Petersen Foundation are represented, was once again delighted with the high quality of the work submitted. The awards are an incentive for students to prove themselves in the technical degree programmes. There was also a pleasingly high number of submissions.


The Petersen Prize for Technology was presented on 31 May 2024 as part of the graduation ceremony at the Institute of Computer Science at Kiel University.


The 1st prize (€3,000) in the Master's category went to Jonas Olschewski, Kiel University (Faculty of Engineering, Institute of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology) with the submitted thesis Analysis Design and Testing of a DC/DC Partial Power Converter for PV Applications. The work was supervised by Prof. Dr Marco Liserre.


The 2nd prize (€2,000) goes to Finn Nußbaum, Hamburg University of Technology (Institute for Electrical Power Engineering, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christian Becker). The title of the work is Optimisation of operating states and voltage regulation of a DC microgrid using reinforcement learning.


The 2nd prize in the Bachelor's category also goes to a student from Hamburg University of Technology: Marten Winkler will receive prize money of €1,000 for his work Benchmarking the Digital Annealer on the Max-Cut problem (Institute for Quantum Inspired and Quantum Optimisation).

The 1st prize (€2,000) was awarded to Henrik Müller from Kiel University of Applied Sciences (Department of Computer Science and Electrical Engineering, Institute of Physics and General Electronics). His work is entitled "Design of truck charging infrastructure at logistics centres and motorway service stations using local battery storage and DC grids".


The Petersen Prize for Technology is the most highly endowed technology prize for engineering students in northern Germany. It is a recognised indicator of the innovative strength and competitiveness of northern German universities in the fields of computer science, technology and engineering. It thus fulfils an essential criterion for the promotion of young scientists as a central concern of the Professor Dr Werner Petersen Foundation.
