Engineer innovative wind turbine systems

Control Systems are instrumental in maximizing the performance and safety of wind turbines. Continuous innovation in control systems enables leading companies to differentiate and maintain their competitive edge.

The increasing complexity of wind turbines and systems needs to be managed while delivering products on time. Systems and controls engineers need to accurately model and simulate the systems that make up a wind turbine, both individually and collectively, for all operating conditions. They also need to validate that the behavior meets all performance and safety requirements. Currently, systems models rarely interoperate with one another and don’t exist in an “aggregated” environment that allows a whole-system multi-physics simulation of the complete product. 

Dassault Systèmes Sustainable Wind Turbines delivers a collaborative environment based on our 3DEXPERIENCE Platform for all users to work together – requirement managers, system architects, product engineers, systems and controls engineers. It provides a fully integrated systems modeling environment that leverages behavioral simulation for systems and mechanical product assemblies. Combining control systems with multi-physics is the next generation approach to better understanding and accurately predicting the behavior of wind turbines.
