Aim of the group is to develop fundamental technologies supporting turbomachinery, thermal engines, and distributed energy system. Subjects going on now are the research and developments of micro ceramic-gas-turbine for co-generation, windmill for power generation, and novel flow control devices. The group members have plenty of experience and knowledge on thermo-fluid dynamics, combustion, numerical simulation of flows, system control theory, and material evaluation technology.
