Large factories and smelters in electricity-intensive industries can use as much power as a medium-sized town, so finding ways to reduce their energy requirement is a high priority. To help industry partners in the design and testing process, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia’s leading science agency, needed to improve the energy efficiency of electricity-intensive industries through the design of better electrical connections using realistic simulation.

The Challenge

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) needed to improve the energy efficiency of electricity-intensive industries through the design of better electrical connections using realistic simulation.

Dassault Systèmes Response

CSIRO offered new modelling techniques with Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE technology including SIMULIA, the realistic simulation application, running on a high-performance computing (HPC) platform.

Benefits

Realistic simulation has allowed CSIRO’s industry partners to assess and test new electrical connection systems to significantly reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
