Dr. Hartwig Stammberger: Circuit breaker simulation & arc science

17 Oct 2013   16:15-17:45

Hartwig Stammberger received his Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Technical University of Braunschweig, Germany in 1995. After joining Moeller (named Klo?ckner-Moeller at the time) in Bonn, Germany in 1995, he was a senior engineer with the pre-development department. In 1997 he was appointed group manager with the responsibility for simulation in that department. In 2003 he became deputy department leader of the Technology development department.
After Eaton Corporation acquired Moeller in 2008 he took over the management position for the technology department of the Power Distribution Components Division of Eaton Electrical in Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA). He is presently manager for Digital Prototyping and Tools in the Power Distribution Components Division of Eaton?s Electrical Sector in Europe.
From 2005 to 2012 Dr. Stammberger led an arc simulation project that Eaton conducted with the Fraunhofer Institute for Scientific Computing and Algorithms (FhG SCAI), the Technical University of Ilmenau, Germany and ? since 2008 ? BASF SE and Electrical Apparatus manufacturer E-T-A. The main objective of this project was to develop and enhance the modeling of the interaction of electrodes, plastic walls and the switching arc in switching devices. The simulation model developed during this project is used in numerous R&D projects within Eaton now, especially for circuit breakers.
Dr. Stammberger holds eight patents and published 26 papers.
