PhD Award of the Graduate School CE for I. Kulchytska-Ruchka

Parallel-in-Time Simulation of Electromagnetic Energy Converters


Dr.-Ing. Iryna Kulchytska-Ruchka has been awarded this year's PhD Award of the Graduate School of Computational Engineering at TU Darmstadt. She received the 1,000 euro prize for her dissertation entitled “Parallel-in-Time Simulation of Electromagnetic Energy Converters.” Kulchytska-Ruchka was supervised by Professor Sebastian Schöps, the head of the Computational Electromagnetics (CEM) department in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at TU Darmstadt.

In her work, the author developed several new time-parallel methods for the industry-oriented application problem of efficiently simulating the steady state of an electrical machine. One of the algorithms can now be used by machine designers in a partner company. Work by Kulchytska-Ruchka has been published several times in leading journals and books and has won awards.

The Graduate School of Computational Engineering, which was founded as part of the Excellence Initiative of the German federal and state governments, presented the PhD Award for the best PhD completed in the previous year for the tenth time. The prize money is provided by Dassault Systèmes, a leading international science company and software developer. Its 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables customers in eleven industries to create sustainable innovations with the help of virtual twins.
