Webinar: Simulation in Wind Energy
March 26, 2008
1:30 pm EST

Wind energy developers face a plethera of technical challenges, from optimizing aerodynamic and structural performance of wind turbine blades to gear performance, ensuring tower stability during seismic events, and even determining the optimal placement of turbines on a particular wind farm site. Construction of offshore turbines also entails the additional challenges of wave loading, current loading, and the structural and hydrodynamics problems associated with equipment delivery. With production tax credits perennially in question, the wind power industry is under pressure to reduce the cost per kilowatt-hour. Attend this webinar to learn how ANSYS software tools can be used to streamline the engineering in wind power development. Who should attend? Engineers and engineering managers within organizations that design wind turbines and towers, or within engineering services and development firms handling construction of wind farms. Additionally, meteorological consultants working in wind turbine siting on complex terrain will benefit.
