„Integration und Bewertung der Spitzenkappung als Planungsgrundsatz zur wirtschaftlichen Netzentwicklung in Mittelspannungsnetzen“
The annual prize of the GEE - "Gesellschaft für Energiewissenschaft und Energiepolitik e. V." (Society for Energy Science and Energy Policy) for the best dissertation 2020 was awarded this year to Dr.-Ing. Christian Wagner for his dissertation on „Integration und Bewertung der Spitzenkappung als Planungsgrundsatz zur wirtschaftlichen Netzentwicklung in Mittelspannungsnetzen“ ("Integration and evaluation of peak curtailment as a planning principle for economic grid development in medium-voltage grids") prepared at ie3 of the TU Dortmund University. The selection was made by an eight-member jury of scientists from renowned research institutions.
In his dissertation, Dr. Wagner investigated at the level of medium-voltage electrical grids to what extent the possibility of peak curtailment of renewable energies can reduce the need for grid expansion. Among other things, one goal of the dissertation is to work out the added monetary value of integrating peak capping into the planning process at the distribution grid level.
GEE offers experts from the energy industry, politics, associations and science a politically open, interdisciplinary forum for the professional discussion of energy-related topics that promotes the exchange of opinions. The GEE has existed as a non-profit association since 1981. Our approximately 200 members are mainly executives from the energy industry and energy policy, from associations and science.

Location & approach
The campus of TU Dortmund University is located close to interstate junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dortmund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is "Dortmund-Eichlinghofen" (closer to Campus Süd), and from B 1 / A 40 "Dortmund-Dorstfeld" (closer to Campus Nord). Signs for the university are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dortmund.
To get from Campus Nord to Campus Süd by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at Campus Nord and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.
TU Dortmund University has its own train station ("Dortmund Universität"). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dortmund main station ("Dortmund Hauptbahnhof") and Düsseldorf main station via the "Düsseldorf Airport Train Station" (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 20 or 30 minutes). The university is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.
You can also take the bus or subway train from Dortmund city to the university: From Dortmund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station "Stadtgarten", usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At "Stadtgarten" you switch trains and get on line U42 towards "Hombruch". Look out for the Station "An der Palmweide". From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dortmund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dortmund main station to the stop "Dortmund Kampstraße". From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop "Dortmund Wittener Straße". Switch to bus line 447 and get off at "Dortmund Universität S".
The AirportExpress is a fast and convenient means of transport from Dortmund Airport (DTM) to Dortmund Central Station, taking you there in little more than 20 minutes. From Dortmund Central Station, you can continue to the university campus by interurban railway (S-Bahn). A larger range of international flight connections is offered at Düsseldorf Airport (DUS), which is about 60 kilometres away and can be directly reached by S-Bahn from the university station.
The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dortmund University. There are two stations on Campus Nord. One ("Dortmund Universität S") is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the university directly with the city of Dortmund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the "Technologiepark" and (via Campus Süd) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at Campus Nord and offers a direct connection to Campus Süd every five minutes.
