Sponsors & Exhibitors

The 4th Wind and Drivetrain Conference will be accompanied by a selection of partners and MBS software users will also be showcasing their technology.



The Wölfel Group

Today, the Wölfel Group consists of Wölfel Engineering, Wölfel Monitoring Systems and Wölfel Wind Systems.
When our company was founded in 1971, Wölfel was one of the pioneers of the finite element method. Today, we are one of Europe's leading engineering companies in the fields of structural mechanics, dynamics and acoustics. In addition to FE and MB simulation, with which we have decades of experience, we also carry out measurements including signal analysis and we develop systems. The result of our work is trend-setting solutions for our customers. Our experience gained from more than 800 projects per year benefits our software customers in the context of technical support, CAE services and practical seminars.

RWTH Aachen - IME & IKT become MSE

The fusion of the institute for engineering design (IKT) and the institute for machine elements and machine design (IME) creates excellent conditions for focusing on the research of model-based system engineering methods in addition to the traditional research areas of IME and IKT.
The Institute of Machine Elements and System Engineering researches the basic structural and tribological behaviour of machine elements and maps this into experimentally validated model descriptions. These model descriptions are used to analyse and design the functional, loss and noise behaviour of entire technical systems with a focus on the drive technology of wind turbines and mobile machinery.


RWTH Aachen - CWD

With the foundation of the Center for Wind Power Drives (CWD) another milestone in the research of wind turbines is set in Aachen. The Center is equipped with an innovative 4MW-WindTurbine-system test rig. RWTH Aachen University thus strengthening the research efforts in the field of onshore wind turbines. The CWD navigates and organizes the interdisciplinary research activities at RWTH Aachen University in the area of WT drive train systems. These research activities contain both fundamental scientific analyses and pre-competitive research and development projects.


MesH Engineering

MesH Engineering is a leading global provider of engineering consultancy services and expert advice associated with Computer Aided Engineering (CAE). Our core competences are related to dynamic analyses of general mechatronic systems, including but not limited to multi-body simulation, finite element method, computational fluid dynamics and real-time applications. Our clients primarily come from the Automotive, Wind, Rail and Aerospace industry.



University Stuttgart - SWE

The Stuttgart Wind Energy institute (SWE) is affiliated to the Institute of Aircraft design at the faculty of aerospace engineering at the University of Stuttgart. At the institute, the work of the wind energy pioneer Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ulrich Hütter (1910–1989) is continued within research and teaching programs. Research and teaching in the field of wind energy is executed multi-disciplinary and internationally and students of all faculties of the University of Stuttgart are welcome. The expansion and usage of wind energy and other renewable energy sources is actively supported.
Research at the SWE treats wind turbines as complex integrated systems. The researcher focus in their work on improving the reliability of turbines and on lowering the production costs of energy. Central topics comprise the dynamics, the design, and the operation of large grid-connected wind turbines onshore and especially offshore.
