Fields of activity

By means of simulations and experiments, Valerius Venzik is working on the conceptual design, thermodynamic analysis and evaluation of heat pump processes operated with 4th generation refrigerants. A systematic analysis, as well as the development of knowledge-based optimization approaches for individual system components under consideration of the interactions with the working fluid, are in particular focus.

Further information can be obtained on ResearchGate:


Expertise: Python, LabView, binary zeotropic refrigerant mixtures, positive displacement machines, heat exchangers and storage tanks in heat pump systems


Valerius Venzik studied Mechanical and Plant Engineering with a focus on Energy and Process Engineering at the University of Duisburg-Essen. After his studies, he worked as a research assistant at the Department of Technical Thermodynamics at the University of Duisburg-Essen where he subsequently obtained his Ph.D. in 2019 on the topic "Experimental investigation of the fluid influence on the thermodynamics of heat pumps: hydrocarbons and their mixtures". In December 2019, he took up a postdoctoral position at the Institute for Energy Efficient Buildings and Indoor Climate at RWTH Aachen University.
