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 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.
Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety, and Energy Technology UMSICHT
Fraunhofer UMSICHT is a pioneer for a sustainable world. With our research in the areas of climate-neutral energy systems, resource-efficient processes and circular products, we make concrete contributions to achieving the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. In the energy systems unit, we develop local energy systems to supply to properties through to urban quarters. We investigate dynamic system behavior and carry out energy-efficiency evaluations. In addition, we prepare demonstration projects and implement promising energy concepts together with our partners.
Gas- und Wärme-Institut Essen
The Gas- und Wärme-Institut Essen e.V. (GWI) is a non-profit and independent research institute that has been shaping the energy topics of the future with its members and partners for many decades. With the energy transition, the GWI has evolved into a technology-open energy institute that is involved in numerous research projects at state, federal and EU levels as part of its academic and application-oriented research and development work. By closely integrating the expertise in practice and research that has been built up since 1937, GWI's know-how has created far-reaching opportunities to analyze and further develop the transformation of the energy system from generation to transport down to the end use at various levels.
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.
