Dynamic Simulation Development Engineer for ETES Heat Pumps (m/f/d) 80-100%

von: MAN Energy Solutions Schweiz AG | Ort: Zürich
N: MANEnergySolutionsSchweizAG

   Dynamic Modeling and Simulation Development:

  • Maintain the existing Modelica-based tool and models (debugging, updates, release management, etc.).
  • Enhance and modify existing Modelica-based models, focusing on heat exchangers and thermal storage models.
  • Develop closed-loop heat pump system models for new plant layouts and refrigerants.
  • Validate existing models (components and complete system) using experimental data or supplier-provided information (e.g., heat exchangers).
  • Conduct sensitivity analysis simulation runs and analyze component limitations.

    Dynamic Simulation Tool Usage for R&D and Engineering Support:

  • Implement real industrial project-based dynamic operation scenarios, such as start-up, shut-down, and grid stability balancing with fast load/power variation.
  • Utilize simulation results to determine operational limitations, collaborating with the Engineering team.
  • Propose and verify novel control and operation strategies.
  • Evaluate refrigerant fluid transfer during maintenance operations.
  • Assess performance variation of heat exchangers under off-design conditions.
  • Validate novel heat pump features through dynamic simulations.
  • Pre-dimension equipment, followed by iterative clarifications with sub-suppliers.
  • Develop novel energy import and export concepts based on existing load profiles (e.g., energy management optimization concepts).
