SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AT ECINE

Research at ECINE is carried out in 2 laboratories, the LERMA and the TICLAB, and revolves around 3 fields: energy, materials and control.

  • Building Thermal Systems
  • Micro-grids using renewable energies
  • Gravity energy storage
  • Heat exchangers
  • Modeling flows in a wind field
  • Anaerobic digesters

  • Phase change materials
  • Plant fiber composite materials
  • Materials for refrigeration
  • Living materials (especially bones)
  • Functional materials
  • Thermal metrology

  • Diagnosis and control using expert systems (application to renewable energies)
  • Optimization of complex system operation (application to buildings and electric vehicles)

The basic engineering sciences used in these applications are numerous: Thermal, physical, physical chemistry, fluid mechanics, solid mechanics, automation and electrical engineering. 

In addition to the techniques used: Numerical simulation, homogenization, identification and control.
