Field of activity
Philipp Mehrfeld conducts dynamic thermal building and system simulations. In addition to pure simulation investigations, these serve as a counterpart to experimental investigations on heat pump systems in the so-called hardware-in-the-loop procedure. As a result, Philipp Mehrfeld is also intensively involved in linking the two worlds of simulation and experiment, allowing dynamic tests to be realized in real time.
Skills: Modelica, Dymola, Python, Docker, Git, software development, project management, leadership experience.
Philipp Mehrfeld studied mechanical engineering with a specialization in energy engineering at RWTH Aachen University from October 2009 to 2014. He completed his 14-week internship in England at Victrex plc. During his studies, Philipp Mehrfeld worked as a student assistant at the Institute of Technical Thermodynamics on the one hand and at the Chair of Building and Indoor Climate Technology on the other. At the latter, he took up his position as a research assistant after completing his studies. Philipp Mehrfeld has been leading the Building Energy Systems team since July 2020.
