ERIGrid 2.0

ERIGrid 2.0 expands the research services and tools of the research infrastructure of the ERIGrid-1 project for validating smart energy networks with an electric backbone. More



New laboratory facilities for the design and assessment of next generation urban energy systems are under construction at RWTH Aachen University within the Urban Energy Lab 4.0 (UEL) project. Within the subproject RTlab, our institute’s laboratory equipment related to research in the field of electrical grids is substantially extended to support the revolutionary simulation & testing paradigm of parallel UEL project InFIS.

HermitCore - A Unikernel for Extreme-Scale Computing

The project HermitCore is a novel unikernel targeting a scalable and predictable runtime behavior for HPC and cloud environments. HermitCore could be used a classical unikernel within a virtual machine. In addition, it extends the multi-kernel approach with unikernel features to provide better programmability and scalability for hierarchical systems. More



"ENVELOPE - Effizienz und Zuverlässigkeit: Selbstorganisation in HPC-Systemen“ is a project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) with a period of three years. The project started in January 2017. More
