Equipment and methods
On the page Equipment and Methods the technical capabilities of our institute to work on energy related problems are listed. Under the category Simulation you will find our computer-aided methods of numerical fluid simulation and energy system simulations. Under Optimization you will find information on the optimization of energy systems, but also on optimized renovation schedules of building portfolios. The Experiment section provides an overview of the different test benches of the chair. In our laboratories and two experimental halls, we test system components and conduct subject tests in the context of comfort studies. In the Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) area, the boundaries between simulation and hardware merge. Complex components, such as a heat pump, are installed as real hardware in the laboratory and dynamically tested under various boundary conditions emulated in the laboratory. The field test area comprises various experiments which are carried out in real operation.
