Curriculum Vitae and more

That's me together with my son

As a young man I started with studying communications engineering. Later I was fascinated by high voltage arcs, so I found a comprehension link between communication- and high-voltage-knowledge in my dissertation developing the concept of 'Wavefronts' with electro-magnetic 'Impulse Waves'. During my work at the university together with my doctoral thesis supervisor and other colleagues I was co-author of 6 published papers about different subjects. 


More than 29 years I was doing my job at a large company which is producing electric/electronic devices and building plants: First I got some knowledge about European  radiation protection equipment (which is one of the most sensitive in the world). After that, while working with a team revewing the leak-detection system for extended liquid metal filled pipes inside the ancient sodium-cooled fast breeder reactor in Kalkar, Germany, I decided to re-adjust my focus on the development of high sophisticated software e. g. for early prototypes of an image processing system ("Graubild-Sensor"), which was tested at Volkswagen's alloy rim production plant to enhance the reliability of fault detection. Later on, I joined a team who was designing and testing prototypes of track bed antennas and transmitters for wireless station platform observation systems ('Sitrail', the system is still in use in Hamburg, Germany). Further projects were the development of software for automation/process controllers ('PID-Tuner', see US000007349748, which is still available as a part of the process control software PCS7), a prototypical optical solder-paste inspection system ('µScan', see EP000001212583, US000006710867, the prototype was presented at the EPC Fair of Nurembourg, Germany, and I was co-author of a publication, but unfortunately the project was stopped). Later on I co-developed and tested Linux-based communication software (Modbus over TCPIP) in a remote cooperation with an Australian software specialist. After this I gained some theoretical and practical knowledge about plastics injection molding machines for developing a method to reduce the variability of the injection molding process (DE10312256, DE102007035804). Last not least I contributed to a project concerning the condition monitoring of packaging machines (DE102006022595, EP06818006, US000007905138).


Being on retirement for more than 5 years, my goals are: 

Give the most priority to my family, meet my budget and avoid getting bogged down! 


But I still have fun using my brain, now my hobby are compressed gases. So for example thinking about extending the state of the art technology for stationary applications of internal and external fired or compressed gas driven engines.


With the help of my university friend Hans-Peter S. and my son Sebastian, we are discussing about a comprehension link between compressor engineering, refrigerator technology and expansion engines reaching for the goal of an efficient thermo-dynamical cycle for expansion engines based on compressed gases (Open Innovation). For this purpose my university friend Hans-Peter S. invented an impressive thought experiment dealing with the isentropic, polytropic and isothermal expansion stroke.


Analyzing a suggestion of Ali Iscitürk, Antalya, Turkey, my son Sebastian and me were thinking  about construction details of windmills producing industrial grade compressed  gas as a cost-saving supplement to electrical driven compressors rsp. as an alternative solution to get mechanical energy for different purposes, similar to :

Finally I'd like to admit, that due to my skills, I'm better in thinking about new technical solutions plus writing papers and giving advice via emails and phonecalls, than either presenting slides in front of large groups, e. g. while participating in congresses, nor do I enjoy in managing projects.
