Digital Energy Twin – Optimised Operation and Design of Industrial Energy Systems

Industrial energy systems for manufacturing are mainly designed for single supply technologies, not designed for the fluctuation of energy demand and energy supply and thus can only react to a volatile demand and supply (thermal and electric) to a limited

EWA (Decision Support for Water Supply System Planning involving Future Change Szenarios)

The research project EWA deals with the topic of strategic planning in drinking water supply to cope better with an uncertain future development. In the project, a decision support tool for water supply systems is being developed, which is able to derive robust system extensions or adaptations. Various planning alternatives with regard to the security of supply, coverage of water requirements, life cycle costs and resource conservation can be examined in the tool, taking into account changing factors such as socio-demographic and climatic developments. The tool uses playful aspects to support intuitive solution-finding. Such an approach is also known as a “serious game”. The project also uses big data analyzes using machine learning algorithms to analyze time-series data (smart meters, pressure, and flow measurements). These are currently being developed in the research project ADAM (Advanced DAta-driven Modeling in water loss management). Long-term use of the web-based tool is ensured, among other things, by involving water supply companies, planning offices, state representatives and municipalities in the development of the tool.

Twitch Analysis

Today’s world is characterized by social interactions online. The video game world is also shaped by these social interactions within social networks and online games. One of the most important social networks currently in the gaming industry is Twitch. Twitch is a streaming service originally designed for gamers, where gamers stream games live. Streamers are already seen as an essential element for the distribution and marketing of video games and can be described as “influencers”. An important question is to find out who the influencers in this network are and whether they have an influence on elements such as the games played and the streaming time on other streamers in the network. We, therefore, want to find out more about the phenomenon streaming
