Energizing Generator Designs

Delivering a fast, trusted workflow, Ansys simulations significantly reduce research and development time while optimizing energy output

INDAR engineers can meet performance targets in less time so they can explore a larger number of options to further improve the generator.

Generators serve as the heart of hydroelectric power plants and must be accurately designed to optimize energy output and prevent excessive temperatures that cause energy losses and shorten the machine’s life. Leveraging Ansys simulation and an improved workflow, INDAR engineers improve generator design accuracy and accelerate all stages of their simulation. Many of INDAR’s hydropower generators are nonstandard designs that must be customized according to each customer’s requirements. This level of customization requires flexible, comprehensive and accurate engineering simulation. 

The team’s recent adoption of Ansys Mosaic technology to enhance the Fluent meshing workflow has greatly accelerated all stages of the team’s simulation work. Automation has cut hands-on development time because preprocessing time has been reduced from six to eight days to four hours and solving time has been slashed by 30%. This greatly speeds up production as each design variation requires only one day to be analyzed instead of more than a week. 

Robust meshing for all physics simulations

Ansys meshing capabilities help reduce the amount of time and effort spent to get to accurate results. Since meshing typically consumes a significant portion of the time it takes to get simulation results, Ansys helps by making better and more automated meshing tools.

Whether performing a structural, fluid or electromagnetic simulation, we can provide you with the most appropriate mesh for accurate and efficient solutions. We offer easy-to-use, automated meshing tools, including tools that enable you to hand craft your own mesh. Smart defaults are built into all tools to make meshing a painless and intuitive task and deliver the resolution required for your problem.
