Jorrit Wronski

I have worked with many aspects of thermodynamic systems over the last years. I can contribute with modelling expertise and hands-on experience from experimental campaigns within the fields of heat transfer and organic Rankine cycles (ORC).

Regarding the modelling of energy and refrigeration systems, I have developed system-scale models and component models covering different levels of detail according to what is required to solve a specific problem. I like to write clean and well-documented code to facilitate the collaboration with other developers and you are invited to review my contributions to the open-source project CoolProp, which is a fluid property database for refrigerants and other working fluids as well as heat transfer media.

I have also been involved in laboratory-scale tests of ORC systems with 5 kW to 50 kW of electrical output at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and with a customer of ours. Regarding dedicated heat transfer investigations, I have worked with the design and control of facilities to measure heat transfer coefficients of various working media in single-phase and two-phase processes in plate-type heat exchangers.

During my studies in Germany (Ruhr-University Bochum) and England (Sheffield University) I became interested in applied thermodynamics and the related fields of thermal energy and refrigeration. After my graduation I could continue working with the Fraunhofer Institute for Environmental, Safety, and Energy Technology (UMSICHT), a place I knew from my final year project as well as from the time I spent there as a student assistant. Before joining IPU in April 2015, I was a PhD student at Department of Mechanical Engineering at DTU. My work was carried out at the Section for Thermal Energy (TES) and was focussed around my PhD project entitled "Design and Modelling of Small Scale Low Temperature Power Cycles".
