Optimize Onshore and Offshore Wind Farm Placements with CFD
About this Webinar
Wind energy is clean, sustainable and cost effective. Over the past 10 years, cumulative wind power capacity in the United States increased an average of 30% per year, and it is one of the lowest-priced renewable energy technologies available today.
Recently, as wind turbines have become larger, offshore wind energy is becoming more popular due to its less restrictive installation. Offshore wind farms are expected to have high power generation efficiency due to stable wind power. On the other hand, the cost of support structures, installation, and maintenance tends to be high. The location of offshore wind farms must also take into account various requirements such as the intensity of ocean currents, seabed conditions, and the distance of power cables from land.
Multiphysics-focused CFD simulations can be used to study these issues in advance, helping to optimize wind turbines from the stand-alone level to the entire wind farm.
Who should attend?
This webinar is tailored for all professionals who are considering not only the fluid dynamics related to wind energy, but also the design of wind turbines as structures and their installation environment and maintenance. We welcome anyone who is interested in learning more about the wind energy simulation and how CFD can help improving the wind turbine design and placement.
