Energy Analytics & Solution Lab

Digital energy research labs for analysing core areas in the energy value chain

The aim of the project ENERGY ANALYTICS & SOLUTION LAB is to be able to analytically describe and develop core areas in the existing and future energy value chain in lab conditions. For this purpose, a digital energy research laboratory will be built both at the University of Applied Sciences JOANNEUM in Kapfenberg and at CAMPUS 02 in Graz.

Ultra-wideband-based WSNs for industrial applications in form of a proof-of-concept test bed

The project UWB4Industry aims to investigate the use of ultra-wideband (UWB) radio technology as a basis for monitoring tasks in industrial applications with new wireless and autarkic sensor networks (WSNs) and run a proof of concept for different condition monitoring use cases.

Developing heat exchangers using additive manufacturing methods

The project InStaf aims to develop new and complex heat exchangers and reflective structures using additive manufacturing (AM) methods. These new manufacturing methods have great potential to be used in many industrial and technological applications. In practice, it is common that the boundaries and deficiencies of different manufacturing methods are discovered after the parts have been built. In the use case of heat exchangers, AM could enable the building of complex structures and provide other advantages.
