Dr.-Ing. Holger Weber is the founder and managing director of Eltrocon. He mainly deals with modelling, calculation, analysis and optimisation of distribution and transmission grids from a technical-economic point of view. Mr Weber has many years of experience. In addition to his work for Eltrocon GmbH, this is also based on his previous 7-year employment at Consentec GmbH and his studies of electrical engineering at the RWTH Aachen. During his work at Consentec, Mr Weber already dealt with similar topics, but in addition also with issues such as the regulation of distribution grids, European electricity trading as well as system services in the transmission grid, which means that he has a broad knowledge of the entire energy industry and a large network of technical experts for a wide range of topics. In addition, Mr Weber has been able to demonstrate his expertise through numerous seminar participations and lectures as well as follow current developments and discussions in the grid industry.
M.Eng. Andreas Kubik has been a permanent employee of Eltrocon since 01.11.2020 after working as a student trainee. He completed his bachelor's degree in energy management at the Dortmund University of Applied Science and Arts. During his bachelor thesis he dealt with the implementation of a power flow calculation in a software for solving mathematical problems. He then completed the master's degree program in energy systems at the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and Arts, specializing in energy systems engineering, and graduated in September 2020 with a master's thesis on the development of future distribution grid structures in cooperation with the distribution grid operator in Kempen. During his work for Eltrocon, Mr. Kubik dealt intensively with issues in the field of grid modeling, planning, calculation and optimization, among others, in connection with target grid planning for several distribution grid operators. In particular, Mr. Kubik is responsible for questions in the area of plant design. This subject area includes the calculation of the thermal and dynamic short-circuit resistance of lines and substations, the arc fault calculation including the derivation of reliable recommendations for protection against work under voltage as well as the pressure calculation in switchgear rooms in the event of a short-circuit.
Assistant to the management
Andrea Wagner has taken on a central role in Eltrocon's organization and communication since 2019. She takes care of all office correspondence and answers post, e-mails and phone calls.
