Academic partners

Hochschule Bielefeld

The Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences and Arts, with its research and development focus on Applied Mathematical Modeling and Optimization (AMMO) of the Department of Engineering and Mathematics participates in the project. The research focus AMMO has a broad spectrum of experience in the field of symbolic and numerical treatment of differential-algebraic systems of equations and their applications in the Modelica environments.

Technische Universität Braunschweig

The Technical University of Braunschweig is represented in the project by the Institute of Thermodynamics (IfT). As part of the project, the IfT provides support through its expertise in the field of simulation technology, especially in the modelling of thermal systems and in the methodology for model order reduction. The use cases of the derived “proper models” range from the design/optimization of thermal systems to real-time analysis.

Universität Augsburg

The University of Augsburg is represented in the project by the Chair of Mechatronics as part of the Faculty of Applied Computer Science. The main focus of its research lies within AI-assisted simulation, especially Hybrid Models and AI-based extrapolation. As a result, advancing these techniques enables AI-enhanced digital twins.

XRG Simulation GmbH

XRG Simulation GmbH is specialised in employing system models and numerical simulation in order to answer requests related to complex energy management systems. Our key competence is the dynamics of (sector-) coupled energy supply systems including their control. We support our customers with services and dedicated software solutions in the fields of aircrafts, automotive industry, buildings, energy supply systems and power plants. By participating in research and development projects we continuously extend our product portfolio and field of activity. Consequently our customers benefit from a direct transfer of current knowledge to the practice. For the electric mobility sector optimisation of air-conditioning and thermal management provides a large potential for increasing the driving range. Here machine learning is an innovative approach to deploy complex system models across different platforms - from a workstation down to real time hardware-in-the loop applications.
