Sustainable Engineering

Engineer innovative wind turbine systems

Control systems have also become instrumental in maximizing the performance and safety of wind turbines. Mechanical components remain essential in a wind turbine for the modification of blade pitch as well as for the transmission of energy through gearbox, and many other functionalities. Continuous innovation in both mechanical design and control systems enables leading companies to differentiate and maintain their competitive edge. Currently, systems models rarely interoperate with one another and don’t exist in an “aggregated” environment that allows a whole-system validation of the complete product.  

Dassault Systèmes Sustainable Wind Turbines solution delivers a collaborative environment based on our 3DEXPERIENCE® Platform for all users to work together – requirement managers, system architects, mechanical 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.

Simulation of blade pitch angle as wind speed changes to optimize wind turbine performance.

Key Highlights and Benefits

  • Requirement management with full traceability
  • Unique systems engineering RFLP (Requirements, Functional, Logical, and Physical) architecture
  • Integrated Systems modeling and simulation to accurately predict wind turbine behavior
  • Mechanical and Tooling design
  • Multi-physics dynamics and simulation

Working in an entirely virtual environment with 3DEXPERIENCE technology is a new design experience for us. We can test different concepts early, foresee problems we would otherwise detect much later, and make the required design changes before going to production
