Selected funded projects:

  • MathEnergy - mathematical key technologies for energy networks (Duration: 10/2016 - 09/2020)
    The project MathEnergy develops mathematical aproaches to tackle the challenges which arise in the context of the energy turnaround. In order to adapt the workload and the expansion of the energy networks, offers and demands have to be adjusted and flexibilities among the energy sources have to be utilized. For this purpose, network-transcending models and model-based monitoring, controlling and evaluation concepts are developed. The goal is to develop a software package for hierarchical complex network models which supports stochastically varying input data and workflows for the integrated simulation and analysis of network-transcendent scenarios of the energy supply with power and gas.
  • ES-Flex-Infra (Duration: 06/2016 - 06/2019)
    Modeling and optimization of the coupling of energy sectors for the flexibilization of the energy infrastructure.
  • Reaktionskinetische Modelle
    The project Identifikation physikalischer reaktionskinetischer Modelle unter Einsatz von Metamodellierung am Beispiel der alkalischen Elektrooxidation von Methanol  funded by the DFG models and simulates mikro- and macrokinetics speed determining steps of the alkaline oxidation of methanol on the basis of a suitable combination of physical approaches and metamodelling. Project duration: 10/2015 - 09/2017
  • CharMe-uPS
    The project CharMe-uPS is funded by the Forschungsvereinigung der Arbeitsgemeinschaft der Eisen und Metall verarbeitenden Industrie e.V. (AVIF) and works on the characterization and meta-modelling of heterogeneous spot-welded joints for crash simulation. Project duration: 07/2015 - 12/2017
