Technical University of Denmark
The Department of Mechanical Engineering conducts teaching and research in basic mechanics, advanced design tools, product development, energy systems, coastal hydrodynamics, and marine technology. The main activities of the section of thermal energy are research and education within thermal energy systems, including refrigeration and heat pump systems, process integration, heat transfer, combustion technologies, integrated energy system, power cycles, and integration of biomass processes.
The current project is in line with the current two-year strategy of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, which i.a. targets research topics related to digitalization and digital twins. Another focus of the department is efficient energy supply.
Furthermore, the project is in line with the overall commitment of the DTU to UN sustainable development goals, where the department especially aims at contributing to aim 7 Affordable and clean energy, aim 9 Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, and aim 11 sustainable cities and communities.
In the project, the Department of Mechanical Engineering will focus on the development and application of physical models. Furthermore, the department will be concerned with the optimization of the operation of the systems and the application of the developments to the demonstration cases.
The Department of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science (DTU Compute) is an internationally unique academic environment spanning the scientific disciplines mathematics, statistics, computer science, and engineering. The interdisciplinary research areas are big data and data science, artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), smart and secure societies, smart manufacturing, and life sciences. The Section for Dynamical Systems performs research within a broad range of areas within dynamical systems - including modelling, optimization, forecasting, and controlling in both deterministic and stochastic systems.
The mission of the Section for Dynamical Systems (DynSys) at DTU Compute is to conduct fundamental, advanced, strategic, and applied research in the area of dynamical systems. This involves both deterministic and stochastic systems, discrete and continuous systems, deductive and inductive model building, forecasting, and descriptions as well as control and optimization. The enabled digitalization of heat pump and refrigeration systems is in line with the overall commitment of the DTU to UN sustainable development goals, where the department especially aims at contributing to aim 7 Affordable and clean energy, aim 9 Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, and aim 11 sustainable cities and communities.
DTU Compute will focus on the development of stochastic grey-box models for supermarket systems and the application to the respective demonstration cases.
