Wind Farms

Axial velocity distribution on the rotor disks of a group of closely spaced turbines with axial inflow conditions

ANSYS Wind Farms

CADFEM 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

CADFEM 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

Wave Energy Devices:

  • mooring systems
  • wave energy-mechanical energy coupling
  • random wave and survival wave conditions
  • output prediction

Tidal Energy Devices:

  • fluid behavior
  • body forces
  • vortex effects
  • structural loading and assessment
AQWA can take account of hydrodynamic interaction between adjacent structures. Thus the motions of one structure can affect the motions of another. The structures can be articulated, connected by cables or independent. A typical application would be shielding effects. Note that hydrodynamic interaction with forward speed is currently not available.
