The global energy mix continues to rebalance, demanding more efficient, larger wind turbines that can operate in harsher environments—both onshore and offshore. Ansys provides a comprehensive multiphysics, multiscale simulation solution for wind turbine engineering development, manufacturing and in-service operations. Explore Ansys solutions for wind turbines:
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.
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.
Vestas develops wind power solutions, including generators, blades and towers. The company uses Ansys technology to shorten the design cycle in this very competitive industry.
As engineers devise new ways to capture renewable energy from the wind – from traditional large scale wind turbines to innovative turbines on high-rise buildings and artificial trees with energy generating mechanical leaves - Ansys’ comprehensive modeling and simulation solutions enable engineers to ensure their designs deliver maximum performance and efficiency.
