TIL Update: Hot water storage

Our TIL library for thermodynamic systems is under continuous development. It is compatible with the latest version of the Modelica Standard Library 4.0.0 and has been supplemented with an add-on for hot water tanks, among other improvements. Get a trial license to model and simulate the provision of hot water in buildings for heating and domestic hot water.

Meet the Team: Yann Pellny

Yann is studying mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University, and we are pleased that he is writing his master's thesis on "The dynamic modeling of a methanol synthesis" with us. For modeling and simulation, he will use our process system library PSL, which we are constantly developing. Yann has French roots and therefore speaks both French and German fluently. A good opportunity for all French speakers to get in touch. 😉

Future with Hydrogen

The project "Zukunftscluster Wasserstoff" is to be launched soon. The vision: an international, hydrogen-based energy economy that predominantly uses renewable energies. We have the opportunity to take a step towards a more sustainable future. The goal is to develop a complete value chain from hydrogen production, storage and distribution to the use of hydrogen technologies and market maturity. 👍

Interactive Diagram

For refrigeration systems, the log-p-h diagram is probably the most widely used graphical visualization. We use it every day in simulation projects to grasp the state of a system at one sight. For our web-based simulation apps we have developed an interactive log-p-h diagram with JavaScript. You can use it for free and create a cycle yourself. Try it out.

TIL Add-on: Hydrogen filling station

Tomorrow, people want to fill up their cars with hydrogen. Is your filling station ready?
We help you to design and optimize your facilities! No matter if liquid (LH2) or gaseous (CGH2) storage, cascading buffer tanks, direct compression and different gas tank systems (Type III, IV): We simulate it and enable you to make the right decision!l

TLK Energy App: aerosim

Window ventilation reduces the CO2 concentration and the risk of infection, but in winter it gets unbearably cold very quickly. With the online simulation app aerosim, we calculated the room air temperature. In a classroom, after just 5 minutes of window ventilation, it is close to 10°C on a typical winter day. A good argument for ventilation systems or air filters.

TIL Update: Tumble dryer

Laundry dryers are complex systems, as operating conditions are constantly changing due to the on-going drying process. Without dynamic simulation, you won't get anywhere! Fortunately, there are now ready-to-use tumble dryer models in the TIL Add-On library. Dry it out 😉 Get your demo license!

Update: TIL Add-on PCM

With the new TIL Add-On PCM you can now simulate phase change materials. Latent heat storage materials can store very large amounts of heat in a specific temperature range. With TIL you can design the optimal PCM storage for your application, e.g. hand warmers in winter. Write us to get a test license before your fingers get cold.

Project MoGaTEx: Adsorption columns

Using an online simulation tool to design adsorption columns based on small-scale experiments. This is the goal of our new project called MoGaTEx! The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung) and is carried out with partners from RWTH and 3P Instruments. Together with our associated partners Climeworks, sysadvanced, and Silica Verfahrenstechnik GmbH we want to make gas separation more energy efficient by holistic design and predictive control!

Wastewater treatment: CYKATT

Why care about wastewater? Because what looks like useless dirt is actually rich in raw materials, such as phosphorus. These treasures should be separated and the energy contained in the sewage sludge should be used. In our research project CYKATT, we investigate how energy and resource saving sewage plants can be designed in the future. CYKATT is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research and is carried out with our partners TLK-Thermo, TU Braunschweig, TU Clausthal and awama. We are happy to be part of it!

Modelica: System becomes stiff?

TIL HD can relieve your stiffness in many cases... Since almost every frequent user of Modelica knows the error message that the system is too stiff. Usually, this problem is not so easy to solve and occurs above all in highly dynamic simulations with transient boundary conditions as well as in switching processes with flow reversal and string disconnections. The TIL HD library is specialized in such cases and remains flexible. If you want to know more, just contact us!
