Thermal Engineering and Energy Systems Group

The Thermal Engineering and Energy Systems group (GITSE) is one of the institute's research groups that has been recognized as a "Consolidated Research Group" and a "Reference Research Group" by the Government of Aragon. His academic activity takes place at the School of Engineering and Architecture (EINA) of the University of Zaragoza, imparting all the knowledge related to the field of thermal engineering, such as thermodynamics, heat transfer, air conditioning systems, renewable energies, motors. thermal, turbomachinery, power plants, energy optimization and combustion. Its members carry out basic and applied research in the areas related to the analysis, simulation and design of thermal devices and energy systems through the use of numerical and experimental methods.

GITSE is involved in the promotion of collaborations and coordinated projects with other research groups, departments and universities in Europe and America, participates in national, European and international networks and collaborates in several TASK and ANNEX of the International Energy Agency.

Integration of thermal storage in the hybridization of the generation in district heating and cooling systems with heat pumps, solar energy and biomass

This project studies the integration of short-term thermal storage, based on latent heat, both in macroencapsulated systems and in suspension / emulsion, in district heating and cooling plants that integrate heat pump, biomass and solar energy with the aim of approach a 100% renewable production.

Integrating Large SHC Systems into DHC Networks

The main objective is the development of technical and economic specifications for the introduction and commercial exploitation of solar systems and urban heating and cooling networks.

ECES Annex 33 Material & Components for Thermal Energy Storage

Joint project of the Solar Heating and Cooling program and the Energy Conservation & Energy Storage mission of the International Energy Agency that addresses the study and development of advanced materials for the thermal storage of energy with phase change materials and / or materials with characteristics thermochemicals.

Zero Energy Habitable Mobile Modules in Europe

Construction of an energy self-sufficient habitable module based on 20-foot containers and fueled with hydrogen produced with clean energies to build bases for European armies. It will be modular and removable and will allow a process of decarbonization of the European armed forces to begin.
