Sustainable technologies: improving energy efficiency with advanced simulation and optimization

The focus of the seminar is to discuss and explore the possibilities for improving energy efficiency with the use of advanced simulation and optimization.  

Several real-world application cases from the field of architecture, automotive (electric vehicles), and thermal efficiency will be presented throughout the morning session. In the afternoon, modeFRONTIER training will be held with the aim to demonstrate how to set up optimization projects to improve energy efficiency of products or processes. 

The event will be hosted by the t3e group,  Département de génie mécanique, École de technologie supérieure, Montreal, Canada. Room: A-4010, salle Robert Papineau
