Jürgen Backes joins the DIgSILENT Team

On November 01 Juergen Backes joining our study group division has reinforced our team. After graduating from the University of the Saarland, Germany in 1991, Juergen started working in the department of Electrical Power Engineering and received his PhD in the area of Distribution network planning based on Probabilistic Reliability Criteria in 1997. In the following period, he collected practical network planning experience within ABB's Electrical Systems Consulting Group (Mannheim, Germany) and in September 2000 changed to the developer team of the NEPLAN software, BCP (Zuerich, Switzerland), from where he left last month to join our company.

As Juergen combines expertise from system studies as well as from software development, he is the ideal complement for our Network Studies and Consulting team. Apart from that, he will be – together with Jasper van Casteren – responsible for the further development of our Reliability Module.

We warmly receive Juergen and wish him a successful start as well as a smooth private settling in the area of "Schwaben"!
