Assistant Professor

Detailed Curriculum Vitae
Dr. Detlef Hummes received his doctorate degree in Electrical Engineering from the Gerhard-Mercator-University of Duisburg, Germany, in 1997. In his thesis he developed a Differential Mobility Analyzer for particles in the nanometer size range, known as the Nano-DMA. From 1997 until 2000 he was the technical director of a wind turbine manufacturer that produced off-grid systems. Between 2001 and 2004 he worked as a patent agent for the Fraunhofer Patentstelle and the Provendis GmbH, both in Germany. Since 2004, he has been a consultant for international companies in the power sector in several countries in middle and the far east. His clients has been international companies like Siemens, Alstom and Mitsubishi as well as power plant operators of the emerging countries like China, India and Vietnam. Before 2010, he was a part time lecture at the German University, South-Westfalia, at the department of Mechatronics and Electrical Engineering. In 2010, his consultancies were mainly in the state of Kuwait. Since 2013, he is an Assistant Professor of Electrical Engineering at the ECE department, the American University of Kuwait. His research interests include renewable energy, based on wind turbine and photovoltaic for off-grid-systems with a focus on energy efficiency and energy storage. He has several publications, in addition to European patents. Dr. Hummes is a member of a number of national and international scientific organizations.
