Curriculum vitae

Thomas Wolgast is doctoral student in the field of energy informatics at the University of Oldenburg.

He received his Master of Science in Power Engineering from the Leibniz University Hannover. His master thesis was the implementation and evaluation of multi-agent based voltage control concepts in the distribution grid.

Currently, he is using Machine Learning and especially Reinforcement Learning, to learn attack vectors on power systems and to identify systemic vulnerabilities this way. That in turn allows to evaluate countermeasures. Especially vulnerable for such attacks are ancillary service markets. Thomas is responsible for the PYRATE  project.
