The Chair for Process Systems Engineering (SVT) deals with computer-based methods for Process Engineering, i.e. Modeling, Simulation and Optimization. Our particular goals are process synthesis and process optimization. Our focus is on optimal design and operation of new chemical processes and energy systems based on existing and new methods. In particular we are aiming in optimal use of renewable energy and material sources for sustainable processes. In parallel we develop methods and algorithms.
The research focus of AVT.SVT is the optimal design of cutting edge chemical processes and energy systems, based on existing and novel design- and optimization methods. In parallel, there is a methodological interest in the development of optimization algorithms and their application to real processes. A variety of chemical processes and energy systems is considered with a special focus on renewable energy and raw material sources and sustainable technology.
