Comprehensive Wind Turbine Simulation Solutions

Design and Development

In an integrated environment, Ansys multiphysics simulations enable wind turbine engineers to address rotor aerodynamics and acoustics; blade, nacelle and tower structural design; power generation and transformation systems; and the embedded software and control systems.

Operation and Maintenance

Through virtual sensors, the use of 3D reduced order models and what-if scenario simulations, a digital twin of a wind turbine can be generated to optimize performance and maintenance requirements and scheduling.


With an automated workflow for 3D computational fluid dynamic wind farm simulation, Ansys solutions enable engineers to determine overall energy levels, optimize turbine layout and assess farm behavior under specific wind conditions.
