Axial velocity distribution on the rotor disks of a group of closely spaced turbines with axial inflow conditions
IDAC Ireland uses FEA Finite Element Analysis, CFD Computational Fluid Dynamics, and electromagnetics software from ANSYS for the design of:
larger, lightweight turbines that capture more wind
higher, lightweight towers that reach windier heights
less expensive and lighter-weight, integrated drivetrains
single-stage gearboxes coupled to permanent magnet generators (PMGs)
better blade, nacelle, and rotor aerodynamics
site-specific configurations of turbines in wind farms.
Comprehensive multiphysics technology from ANSYS enables the boundaries of turbine technology to be pushed back by coupling simulations between structural dynamics and aerodynamics of the blades, heat transfer and electromagnetic losses in electrical equipment, and the response of offshore wind turbines to hydrodynamic waves. Engineered scalability accelerates analyses, and an adaptive architecture enables integration with industry-specific design and analysis tools such as Flex 5.
Marine Renewable Energy
IDAC applies the ANSYS AQWA suite of integrated modules which addresses the vast majority of analysis requirements associated with the hydrodynamic assessment of all types of offshore/marine structures
