Simulation Studies and Data Reconciliation for Modern Steam Power Plants
Sebastian Vinkenflügel did research at Tsinghua for his Master’s thesis using real data from a 1.000 megawatt Chinese coal-burning power plant. His work can be used to optimize the operation of power plants and to minimize the output of greenhouse gases.
The many discussions with Tsinghua students and with Prof. Li really helped advance my work. […] Students at Tsinghua love to discuss current political and technical topics – especially during meal times. At Tsinghua, I encountered unconventionally thinking students who often offered fascinating approaches to problems.
