Prof. Dr.-Ing. Thomas Brückner

has held the professorship in High-Power Electronic Systems at the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology since September 2019.

Prof. Brückner's work focuses on components, topologies and systems for the electronic control of electrical energy, particularly for high-power applications up to the multi-megawatt range. His professorship is thus at the center of what is currently one of the most socially and technologically relevant areas, namely the turnaround in energy policy and the related topic of electromobility.

Prof. Brückner has many years of professional experience in this field. Before his appointment to the Universität der Bundeswehr München, he worked as an engineer, team and department leader at General Electric, where he specialized in the development and industrialization of medium-voltage power converters and their employment in a wide range of applications, such as industrial drives, grid interconnections, pumped storage plants, wind turbines and photovoltaic plants. Prof. Brückner had previously undertaken research at various institutes, including the ABB Corporate Research Center in Heidelberg, and was a visiting student/researcher at the Virginia Power Electronics Center (VPEC) in the United States and at Monash University in Australia. He received his doctoral degree from Dresden University of Technology.
