Simulations and CFD tools for alternative energy

As environmental regulations become more stringent, energy and engineering sciences play an important role. Today's technologies in the energy sector need to be improved, e.g. to reduce energy consumption, save CO2 and at the same time keep an eye on demand, costs and the environment.

With the help of numerical simulations in the early design phase, new concepts can be tested faster and more cost-effectively than with conventional prototypes and test methods. Digital twins and automated calculations can help to determine the optimal configuration for a variety of design parameters.

CFD analyses by DHCAE Tools have been successfully used in the following application areas of alternative energy generation:

Example: Tidal energy converter: generating energy from sea currents
