Daniel Geweth

External PhD Student

Curriculum Vitae

In 2013, I received my Diploma (FH) in automation engineering at the University of Applied Sciences in Giessen and in 2016 graduaded with a Master degree in automation and control engineering at the Technical University of Darmstadt. After a short period at RWTH Aachen University, I have been working as an external-industrial PhD student at the University of Freiburg in cooperation with Robert Bosch GmbH in Stuttgart under the supervision of Prof. Moritz Diehl since May 2018. Since June 2022, I have been working mainly as a control engineer in the field of power electronics for electrified vehicles at Robert Bosch GmbH in Stuttgart, while also working on my PhD in the field of control of electric drives.

In my PhD, I mainly worked on model predictive control of permanent magnet synchronous machines for automotive applications, focusing on real-time algorithms for embedded hardware with limited computational power. The most recent result is a field-oriented economic model predictive control approach based on observer techniques to overcome dead times and parameter mismatches.
