Simulation Infrastructure and HPC


Team Leader: Sonja Happ



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
