New research project for Dr. Karl HOLLAUS

Dr. Karl HOLLAUS received the research project Magnetics for Filters funded by the Bundesministerium für Landesverteidigung (BMLV), Austria.

The goal of the project is to accurately simulate small transformers made of ferrite cores in a very wide frequency range for passive filters in different operating conditions (common mode, saturation, etc.). Appropriate finite element models (FEMs) need to be developed and implemented to consider with sufficient accuracy both the skin effect and the proximity effect of the windings. Simulations will be compared with measurements of representative benchmark problems. The Institute for Analysis and Scientific Computing will develop and implement the necessary FEMs and will carry out the simulations. The benchmark problems will be manufactured and the associated measurement data will be provided by the BMLV.

Karl Hollaus received his Ph.D. in 2001 from Graz University of Technology under supervision of Oszkár Bíró. In 2009 he joined the group of Joachim Schöberl at RWTH Aachen and later moved with him to TU Wien in 2010, where he is currently a research assistant.

The Institute of Analysis and Scientific Computing congratulates Karl on securing this research project!
