Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jutta Hanson

Prof. Jutta Hanson studied General Electrical Engineering at the Technical University of Darmstadt and obtained her PhD from the same university in 2000. Subsequently, she engaged in industrial activities focusing on the planning and analysis of public and industrial power supply networks, with a particular emphasis on stability, especially for the use of power electronic devices. From 2004, she was responsible for Transmission and Industrial Networks in the field of Electrical Systems Consulting.

Since 2011, she has been a professor in the Department of Electrical Power Supply with Integration of Renewable Energy in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at the Technical University of Darmstadt. From 2016 to 2018, she served as the Dean of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at TU Darmstadt.

Her research interests lie in the stability of electrical power supply networks with an increasing share of inverter-based volatile generation from renewable energies, as well as in the utilization of sector coupling to create flexibilities. She focuses on the control of hybrid AC/DC networks and the planning of energy-optimized districts.

Prof. Hanson is, among other roles, a Senator of the Helmholtz Association for the Energy Research Field, a member of the board of the ETG (energy engineering association), a Senator of TU Darmstadt, an advisory board member of the BMWK's Roadmap System Stability, a member of the German Academy of Science and Engineering Acatech, and a member of the Academy of Sciences and Literature in Mainz.
