Field of activity
Christian Vering investigates the performance of heat pump circuits from the refrigerant selection to the system controller. For this purpose, he uses applied optimization methods and couples them with dynamic simulation models and hardware-in-the-loop experiments to validate important assumptions. Considered in an integrated way, the methods aim at identifying the influence of the operating strategy of a heat pump on the design of the system and vice versa. The whole process is performed in the especially built refrigerant laboratory.
Skills: Matlab, Python, Julia, TwinCat, LabView, Modelica
Christian Vering studied mechanical engineering with a specialization in regenerative energy engineering at RWTH Aachen University from October 2010 to June 2016. During a six-month technical internship, he investigated thermal management strategies of sports vehicles at Porsche AG. During his studies, Christian Vering worked for seven semesters at the Chair of Technical Thermodynamics in teaching and research. After completing his studies, he began working as a research assistant at the Chair of Building and Indoor Climate Technology.
