Complex Dynamical Systems

Our team is concerned with the development of innovative system solutions. Our work is centred around “Thinking in Systems” and the holistic view of processes and products. To this end we research and develop advanced methods of modelling, algorithms as well as technologies for digitisation and automation.

Our special focus here is on physically based and data-driven modelling, simulation, system analysis, identification, diagnostics, real-time optimisation, control, system design and system integration. 

In close collaboration with our customers we put our expertise to good use in the following fields:

  • production systems
  • energy systems
  • robotics and handling systems
  • mechatronic systems and components
  • dynamic drive systems (electric, pneumatic, hydraulic, hybrid)
  • power electronics systems

It is a key objective for us to work together with our partners from research and industry to realise optimum utilisation of the possibilities of digitisation with regard to systematically increasing system efficiency (resources, costs), quality, dynamic properties, robustness and reliability as well as flexibility and operability. At the same time we attach great importance to reducing waste and emissions by means of maximum efficiency. 

We focus on the following innovations and research topics:
