Post Doc — Investigation on modelization of combined cycles for cooling and electricity production using modelica

Post Doc — Investigation on modelization of combined cycles for cooling and electricity production using modelica

RESEARCH FIELD

Thermal energy, combustion, flows

ABSTRACT

The Department of Thermal Bioresources and Hydrogen technologies works around thermal energy by exploring ways to enhance it. Among the research axes, the development of efficient disctict heating and offering more flexibility through intelligent management also requires technological solutions to convert heat in various forms. Thus, research work is already under way on the construction of dynamic models of district heating at LSHT, while technological bricks are developed at LS2T and LSHT to convert the different energy vectors. For the dynamic modeling of district heating, the choice of the Modelica language and the dynamic resolution environment Dymola has been achieved and has produced very satisfactory results. To meet the challenge of developing new technologies, understand their integration in an energy network and optimize their operation, it is now necessary to develop conforming models of these systems and compatible with the developments already realized for the district heating.
