Professor Thomas Schulte primarily conducts research on real-time and hardware-in-the-loop simulation of energy systems and components. He is the director of the Future Energy Institute since 2017.

Berufstätigkeit / Employment:

Nach Abschluss seiner Promotion war Schulte bei der dSPACE GmbH als Senior-Applikationsingenieur und Teamleiter für die Entwicklung von Hard-, Software und Simulationsmodellen sowie die Projektdurchführung für die HIL-Simulation elektrischer Antriebe und Leistungselektronik zuständig. Seit 2010 leitet er das Fachgebiet Regelungstechnik und Simulation (ehem. Simulation technischer Systeme) im Fachbereich Elektrotechnik und Technische Informatik der Technischen Hochschule Ostwestfalen-Lippe.

After completing his doctorate, Schulte was responsible at dSPACE GmbH as a senior application engineer and team leader for the development of hardware, software and simulation models as well as project implementation for the HIL simulation of electrical drives and power electronics. Since 2010, he manages the control engineering and simulation department (formerly simulation of technical systems) in the electrical engineering and computer engineering department of the OWL University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

Akademische Ausbildung / Academic education:

Schulte hat an der Universität Paderborn Elektrotechnik studiert und wurde 2004 im Fachbereich Elektrotechnik für seine Arbeit „Stromrichter und Regelungskonzepte für Ultraschall-Wanderwellenmotoren“ mit Auszeichnung promoviert.

Schulte studied electrical engineering at the University of Paderborn and received his doctorate with distinction in 2004 in the electrical engineering department for his work "Power converters and control concepts for ultrasonic traveling wave motors".
