Developing Institutes and Partner Company
Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics (TUHH)
The Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics deals with the application of the laws of thermodynamics to industrial processes. The institute has its main focus on the interdisciplinary modelling and simulation of dynamic systems. The institute's objective is to improve the understanding of complex processes and get deeper insights into the dynamics of integrated energy systems to allow the solution of current technical questions. Currently, the institute works on several research projects in the fields of aviation, cooling and air conditioning, process engineering and renewable energy. These projects are carried out in close collaboration with other industry partners and universities. Lectures on thermodynamics, heat engineering, air conditioning systems, system simulation and energy technology are also offered by this institute.
Institute of Electrical Power and Energy Technology (TUHH)
The ieet has been founded in April 2015 and focuses its research and teaching activities at the Hamburg University of Technology on electrical power and energy systems engineering. The objectives are optimal cooperation of system components and technologies for production, transmission, storage, distribution, transformation and consumption of electrical power, respectively energy. Within the range of activities, special emphasis is placed on electrical grids as well as energy markets for a modern, sustainable and economically viable electrical power supply.
Institute for Electric Power Systems and Automation (TUHH)
The Institute of Electrical Power Systems and Automation engages in teaching and research in the field of electrical engineering especially for ships, electrical, thermal and mechanical auxiliary machinery and automation of systems and system components. The institute's research field was originally focused on ships and has been expanded to similar industrial power systems. The simulation of the systems on the basis of a physical modeling is a method established in this institute for over more than 20 years. Besides Matlab / Simulink, simulation with Dymola / Modelica has recently advanced in the institute. For the simulation of special problems a special proprietary simulation program is occasionally used. Thanxt to the institute's well equiped laboratory, measurements on real facilities can be conducted in order to confirm theoretical aspects deduced theoretically or to determine parameters for certain simulation models.
Institute of Energy Systems (TUHH)
At the Institute of Energy Systems, energy-related processes are analyzed and optimized. The modelling and simulation with realistic boundary conditions, followed by our own research facilities for conducting complex experimental studies (e.g. drop tube furnace, CO2 liquefaction plant, CO2 corrosion test rig, biomass combustion plant, measuring devices for ash characterization and for flue gas and fine particle emissions). Research topics include thermodynamic studies of steam power and CHP plants, investigations and assessments of Carbon Capture and Storage technologies, optimization of steam generators, electricity generation with geothermal energy, biomass co-firing and the study of flexibility and part load operation of fossil-fired power plants. These activities are carried out mainly in the context of research projects that are funded by the public sector or from German and international industrial partners.
XRG Simulation, Hamburg
XRG Simulation conducts systems simulations by numerical methods in the automotive, process and building services field, for the aerospace and shipping industry and for power plants. We are specialized in energy engineering and support industry and research institutions in research, development and improvement of products and projects. In every phase of the product life cycle we identify the potential for improvement in a cost effective and time saving way.

Industrial advisory council
The research project is being accompanied by an advisory board composed of representatives from the industrial and political sectors. In this council, the city of Hamburg as well as various plant and network operators are represented. This allows the partners to exchange thoughts with experts in the the energy sector.
