Institut für Energietechnik (IET)

Laboratory of Thermodynamics

In the thermodynamics laboratory the students complete practical training in the area of thermodynamics and fluid dynamics. The laboratory facilities and equipment are also used for project, bachelor and master theses. However, the laboratory is mainly used for the activities of the IET to carry out industrial projects.

  • Analysis and optimization of energy equipment (especially heat exchangers), pipelines, tanks and fittings
  • Development and optimization of energy-converting devices and processes in energy and process engineering
  • Measurement and assessment of prototypes and initial analyzes on site or in our laboratory
  • Compression heat pumps, chillers and absorption heat pumps
  • Simulation of thermal processes
  • Thermal energy storage
  • Trouble shooting in the energy sector
  • Process representation and planning
