The chair of Electrical Power Systems uses classical methods of power engineering as well as adapted strategies for the grid integration of decentralized power plants with renewable sources. A focus lies on the integration of energy converters and the resulting topics “grid identification” and “future grid operation with decentralized power generation”. These issues are part of the interdisciplinary research cluster “Sustainable Power Supply”, in which the chair of Electrical Power Systems is significantly involved. There are numerous research projects in the field of grid impedance measurement on low-voltage, medium-voltage and high-voltage level as well as in the integration of energy storage in power grids.

Another joined interdisciplinary research cluster at Helmut Schmidt University is “Aeronautics Research”. Topics with the subject sustainability, which the chair of Electrical Power Systems deals with in this cluster, are developments for future onboard grids of aircraft, including the integration of fuel cells.

The scientific spectrum of the professorship includes measurements with corresponding simulations as well as the development of new simulation tools for special operating cases in power grids.

The Academy of Sciences and Humanities in Hamburg elected Prof. Schulz in 2011 as a Full member. His task is to strengthen the focus of the Academy in the field of energy research.

Since 2019 he is a spokesman of the working group “Hydrogen for the North German Energy System“.
