Hongtao Qiao
  • Biography

    Prior to his PhD, Hongtao worked at Carrier Corporation developing advanced steady-state computer simulations for HVAC systems. During his PhD, he developed a comprehensive transient modeling framework for thermo-fluid systems to explore complex dynamic characteristics of vapor compression cycles. Currently, Hongtao works on the control-oriented multi-physical system modeling.

      Date: November 11, 2015 - November 12, 2015
      Where: University of Connecticut
      MERL Contacts: Christopher Laughman; Scott Bortoff; Hongtao Qiao
      Research Area: Data Analytics
      Brief
      • MERL Researchers Scott A. Bortoff, Chris Laughman and Hongtao Qiao attended the North America Modelica User's Group Meeting, hosted by the University of Connecticut, November 11-12, 2015. Scott Bortoff gave the Keynote Address entitled "Using Modelica in Industrial Research and Development," and Chris Laughman and Hongtao Qiao each presented a paper on modelling of HVAC systems. The Meeting attracted approximately 80 Modelica users from a diverse set of companies and universities including United Technologies, Johnson Controls and Ford. Use of Modelica is accelerating in North America, lead by largely by automotive and similar "systems manufacturing" type companies.
