Computer Scientist, Physicist or Similar - Visualization of Energy Systems on Board of Ships

DLR - German Aerospace Center

Geesthacht, Germany

Your mission:

The institute researches and develops innovative solutions for decarbonization and emission reduction in shipping. In cooperation with the industry, these solutions are transferred into practice. The institute is building a large-scale infrastructure to test and try out the new energy systems to be developed in a standardized laboratory environment as well as under real conditions on a research vessel.

For this purpose, the institute is divided into four departments. The first one researches systems based on fuels to be identified, their storage on board, conditioning for use in the appropriate converter. The second one researches the further development of on-board systems for electricity, heat and cooling and their interaction with the systems of the first department. The third department brings the developed and built systems of both departments on board a demonstrator to test the systems under real conditions and make them ready for certification. The fourth department virtually replicates the maritime energy systems to investigate simulations under extreme conditions.

The department Virtual Ship develops computational models for the overall system for the generation and use of energy and material flows in maritime applications. For this purpose, various simulative tools are used to parameterize the process engineering influences. A program for mapping and simulating the coupling of the superordinate system is to be developed. This will identify the bidirectionality or feedback of effects. The generated results will be continuously validated in the course of the experiments of the departments and, if necessary, compensated or mathematically adapted by changed correlations.

Your field of activity will include:

  • Design and development of system configurations for testing maritime energy supply systems;
  • Evaluation of technical system modules and the use of the newly derived findings to generate new technical solutions (their optimization through simulative evaluation);
  • Digital representation of construction and integration of new (suitable) systems to be designed into system models;
  • Formation of hypotheses with verification or falsification via experiments;
  • Conception of new examination methods and procedures and their combination;
  • The mapping of the overall system is implemented in this department on the basis of various simulative tools into a superordinate system model for the parameterization of the process engineering influence during the generation and utilization of energy and material flow.

Your qualifications:

  • Completed scientific university studies (MSc) in physics, computer science, shipbuilding or comparable field of study;
  • Physical-technical knowledge on the subject of simulation of energy systems, ship operation technology or similar;
  • Experience with measurement signals in maritime applications for the holistic description of energy flows;
  • Handling of simulation tools (e.g. ASPEN, Ansys);
  • Extensive English language skills.
