Work Package-Lead: Virtual Vehicle

Partners: IESTA, ÖBB, Fertinger, ATT, Obrist, Institute for Thermal Engineering, Liebherr Transportation Systems

Main Target:

Work Package 6 is the linking element within the eco2jet project. It supports all 3 phases of the project and ensures that the identified solutions on component and system level are on the highest possible level. Working Package 6 concentrates on four key aspects within the evaluation on component and system level that are the general base for the evaluation:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Greenhouse gas reduction
  • Cost efficiency
  • Customer comfort and acceptance.

The following (evaluation) targets are defined:

  • Requirement Phase  are to ensure knowhow-transfer from GreenHVAC4Rail to eco2jet, to support the requirements design process by mock-up (bread board) testing of benchmark components and to ensure the practicality, producibility and traceability of the developed requirements.
  • Development Phase (Component and System Level) are to ensure the best realization of the requirement specification in close cooperation with Working Packages 2, 3, 4, 5 and 7. They aim to give feedback to the developer on the developed components and possible optimization approaches and to evaluate the component and system TRL.
  • Demonstration Phase are the evaluation of overall project targets and the evaluation of demonstration system based on defaults of the requirement specifications and on customer requirements concerning comfort in a wide operating range.

Main Tasks – the evaluation of:

  • Requirements (Lead: Virtual Vehicle)
  • Components (Lead: Virtual Vehicle)
  • System (Lead: Virtual Vehicle)
  • Demonstration (Lead: Liebherr Transportation Systems)


  • Quality Management, Quality Management Processes & Quality Assurance
  • FMEA
  • Simulation
  • Prototypes
  • Test bench measurements, data acquisition and analysis
