MoNiKa - Institute for Thermal Energy Technology and Safety (ITES)

Research goals

The experiments at the power plant facility pursue two main goals:


  • Validation of existing design- and simulation programs
  • Validation of transient calculations
  • Development of reliable models for the thermodynamic cycle and the interaction between the components
  • Development of models for the individual components


  • Development
  • Interpretation
  • Test
  • Characterization
  • Optimization of plant components, in particular of the main components
  • Investigation of the interaction between the components (systemic approach)
