Ventilation and Air-Conditioning

Efficient ventilation and air-conditioning technology makes a decisive contribution to the energetic optimization of buildings and industrial processes.

We place a special focus on the development and evaluation of comfort-oriented and energy-efficient ventilation and air-conditioning concepts for residential and office buildings. For this purpose, air quality, air temperature and air humidity as well as their spatial distribution must be combined with efficient heat recovery concepts and suitable flow control. Thereby, energetic aspects are considered as well as the evaluation of indoor air quality with regard to comfort and user behavior.

Based on simulations and experimental characterization, we evaluate the energy demand and the indoor air quality on different scales. This enables us to develop and analyze equipment concepts or subcomponents such as distribution systems or new types of heat exchangers and to control them. When it comes to dehumidification, we use our extensive expertise in the development, characterization and processing of sorption materials.
